What does it take to create a workforce that is able and willing to meet the challenges of today’s fast-paced and flatter organizations? It requires an organization that encourages the development of self leaders and individuals willing to assume the mantle of self leadership.
Self leaders have the mindset and a skill set to take responsibility and initiative for succeeding in their work-related role. In this fun and informative webcast, business author and consultant Susan Fowler from The Ken Blanchard Companies shares three important skills that every self leader must have:
- How to challenge assumed constraints at work
- How to celebrate your points of power
- How to collaborate with your manager for success
You will also learn how supervisors and managers can promote self leadership as a way to cope with the fact that there is less and less time for them to devote to their direct reports because of their own work expectations and ever-expanding numbers of direct reports.
