Are you a cattle herder or a cat herder? Find out in this fun and insightful program that shares the latest thinking and research about leadership and what types of leaders produce the best results. In this seminar, Don Shapiro, co-author of The Character-Based Leader, will inspire you to embrace your role as a leader and learn how to develop a leadership character that can build trust.
Not all leadership methods are equal when it comes to producing results. While most leadership ideas can help you work better with your people, that alone will not raise your people's performance enough to actually boost results.
Research shows there are certain types of leaders that produce higher sales, profits, customer satisfaction, teamwork, employee engagement and employee retention. In community organizations, they get more enthusiastic involvement and commitment from volunteers.
Great leadership is about trust and building that trust is about your character...who you are. It's not about your title, position, power or authority. You can be a great leader without a title and having a title does not make you a leader. It's also not about using good human relations techniques. While that can improve how well you deal with people, it takes a lot more than techniques to build the type of trust that can produce exceptional performance.
People trust your character, not your title or techniques. When you lead from a character that builds trust, your people will enthusiastically join you in pursuing your goals.
Leadership character is a combination of your values and principles, how you see your role as a leader and your attitude toward those you lead. That includes integrity, respect, humility and servant leadership.
This seminar will explore the type of leadership character that builds trust and how you can grow into this type of leader.

In Elizabeth's last discussion she talked about the high cost of retention and not letting your best team members walk away.

How do I get some of that good stuff? Do I need to worry about bad reviews on GlassDoor from employees? All this and more will be answered on Elizabeth talk on Learn It Live. Don't leave employee engagement to HR. Take the reins and become involved as a leader in this important concept.

Training and development.
Words that most leaders fear because it means putting time into an employee and away from the daily workload. Many leaders shy away from developing employees due to lack of time, but studies show it's the number one reason why people leave their jobs. An employee asking for development is an employee that is asking to be retained. In fact, Glassdoor's 2014 employment confidence survey of nearly 1,000 U.S. employees found that 63% of employees believe that learning new skills or receiving special training is the most important towards career advancement.I

It's been said that the only thing permanent is change itself and in business it's no different. Change is inevitable.
In Elizabeth's last class on Emotional Intelligence, she talked about how the brain is actually hard wired to resist change. Recoiling from change can become a major issue in the office. Just think about the changes that can happen in a business - implementing a new software, hiring new people, firing non performers, taking on a new business line, merging with a competitor. Each of these changes are critical for business to thrive and survive, but the bottom line is people - your people - are the ones that have to embrace and implement your vision as a leader.
This class will teach:
Understanding how change affects employees
How to motivate employees to embrace change
How to prepare and 'sell' your staff into change
How to implement change in the workplace
How your leadership style will make or break if the change is successful
This presentation is wonderful for a seasoned leader or a new leader. Join us for an hour that could change your whole idea about what change is - and how to manage change.
