Module 1: Leading From the Side
To lead well you must know what you are great at, and compensate for your shortcomings with your team. This preparedness to show everything you are, including your weaknesses, is vital in moments of crisis when a strong directional lead is essential. Leaders must work with the truth about who they are and welcome their team stepping up as equals.
Modern leaders cannot have all the answers. They don’t need to be the smartest guy in the room. Because life is so complicated, leading can no longer be based on issuing expert instructions. Command-and-control is no longer strategic, but tactical.
Module 1 covers:
- Understanding modern leadership
- Where traditional models of leadership are failing
- Understanding and using soft power
- Personal leadership style self-analysis
