Cours Advanced Leadership DevelopmentImprimer Retour
Leaders face unique challenges to keeping their team members motivated and aligned to the organisational or project’s strategy. This difficulty is often due to the difference between Leadership and Authority, Power and Influence. Also, as Leaders, we are confronted to a cruel dilemma: we can’t always force people to drive their actions in a certain way, we don’t necessarily hold the appropriate authority. Yet, we still need them to deliver, follow a certain path and some rules, and report on their progress.
We have then to find smoother ways to convince, lead and influence in order to move forward and make things happen.
If a direct authoritarian approach doesn’t work, a Leader has to use specific techniques to communicate, convince and lead her/his team members.
Leadership starts of course by one-self. Defining a strategy for yourself, with clear objectives and verify if your aims, resources and environment contribute effectively to your strategic personal objectives. Being clear about your own objectives and strategy will foster your Leadership position and give you the means to give sense and inspiration for others to follow you.
Develop and enhance the contributions you make to your organization by being able to:
- Define objectives in order to empower and motivate their team members
- Identify individual drivers to lead their team members
- Use these individual drivers to commit and engage their team members
- Identify resistance factors
- Apply effective techniques to overcome any potential resistance.
