Character Before Compromise
Leadership is not a popularity contest. At times leadership places you in a lonely and unpopular place, but people will gratefully follow character before they buy into commands. Leaders will always encounter difficult crossroads of decisions, however personal integrity and values will impede the compromise of mitigating your leadership standards. This message is designed to help you in determining and establishing core characteristics in advance as a leader, so that you are prepared to stand firm when handling non-negotiable standards of performance from yourself and those you lead.
As a Leader It All Comes Back To You
The success or failure of a company or group all comes back to the competency of its leadership. Competent leadership involves being proactive in getting the team on the same page from the outset. It involves setting the example, accountability, effective communication, and follow through. Because the rise or fall of success comes back to the leader, he or she must care enough about the team and the success of the company's vision/objectives to be become a person that people want to follow. As a leader, people don't care how much you know until they know how much you care.
Valuing The Purpose Of Your Work
Knowing and appreciating your incredible value to yourself and the workplace is critical for success. I believe all people are born with a calling and a purpose in life. We all have God-given talents and abilities that make us unique and set us apart from others. This powerful message reminds and encourages you that you possess within yourself the seeds for greatness. No matter what level in your company you serve at, when your gifts are utilized in the services of the workplace, you can become all that you can be by helping others to become all that they can be.
A Dream Team Work Environment Begins With You
What person in a position of leadership does not want the perfect dream team working with them? Creating a dream team work relationship and environment is directly related to the leader's ability to coach and manage the team. This can become difficult with the challenge of a revolving team. A leader must know the strengths and weaknesses of the team in order to plug in solutions to workplace obstacles and succeeding in completing objectives. Great team work begins with great coaching and positive motivation. Although a dream team can be achieved, it takes careful planning, determination, and the ability to harness the talents of different people while also examining their differences for the greater good of the team.
Positive Thinking + Positive Attitude = Positive Results!
As my friend and mentor, Zig Ziglar once said, "Positive thinking won't help you do anything, but it will help you do everything BETTER than negative thinking will." A positive mindset combined with a positive attitude is undeniably a great combination for achieving positive results. This high octane motivational message will equip you with the know-how to develop a more positive mindset and how to achieve a more positive attitude for optimal results in and outside the workplace.
Bridging the Divide; Understanding General Diversity in the Workplace
The United States has become the melting pot for workplace diversity. The U.S. workforce now contains a complex mix of races, cultures, languages, and religious affiliations. For these reasons, today US workforce is more likely to face challenges in interacting and working with diverse people in the workplace. This program is designed to help your organization to acquire the ability to understand and relate well to all types of people in the workplace. Your organization will learn how to value diverse backgrounds in order to help you thrive in an ever-changing society.
