Leadership Strategies of Champions

"Leadership is the capacity to translate vision into reality. Leaders are made rather than born."

These quotes by Warren Bennis suggest the importance of effective leadership within an organization to transform vision into action by empowering champions among team members.

Therefore, leadership is both art and science. Decades of research have identified the "hard skills" (a.k.a. competencies) associated with the knowledge and behavioral traits required of leaders. However, such competencies must effectively be put into action. Therefore, and perhaps equally important, are the efforts associated with the utilization of "soft skills" related to leadership abilities and traits that make leaders effective. In other words, modern leaders move beyond knowing merely what to do and are deeply invested in how to do it. Seeking the most effective balance of each set of attributes is essential in leading organizations, people and oneself toward fulfillment of strategic purposes. In this workshop, we delve into the foundational roles, skills and functions of leadership and move toward a progressive view of striking the required balance of modern leadership practices. At the center of such a modern leadership blend of actions is a keen focus on how to influence others, negotiate effectively, resolve conflict, and set a culture of accountability in obtaining multi-level results toward strategic purpose. The workshop concludes with a dynamic practical approach for translating workshop learning into actionable leadership efforts for participant organizations.
