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.

What makes the difference between success, high profits, a well- motivated and engaged workforce, satisfied, loyal customer base and an organization which is struggling to meet its targets, has high levels of conflict, a poorly motivated staff and an ever diminishing return on the effort to succeed? Much research has been carried out on what gives successful companies the competitive edge. Positive psychology used in a structured way has demonstrated, beyond doubt, it gives individuals, teams and organizations across the board the "Positive Advantage". If you want better outcomes there need to be a better quality of thinking. Perspective, motive, emotional intelligence, choice and responsibility are all major elements within our thinking. This session offers a structured approach to "mindful" thinking.

In this class we will look at the functions of leadership and the difference between managing and leading. We will learn why it is important to recognize which mode you are engaged in, how much leadership you currently do and what the consequences of that might be. Finally, if you feel you need a more functional leadership style, we will identify what actions to take to address these differences.
Managers often avoid giving it and employees often resist receiving it. Managers are poor at giving useful feedback and there is good reason. Employees often avoid it to prevent being criticized and to protect their reputations. Employees often prefer to stay in denial than to hear the truth and to change. It is often safer to pretend you are a good performer than to admit you need help. This "feedback disability" most often reveals itself in the annual performance appraisal which remains the most popular management tool. Employees need frequent and regular feedback to be fully engaged and this might explain why the percentage of engaged employees remains stagnant in the high 20s (Gallup 2012). Engaged employees are twice as productive as disengaged employees (The Temkin Group 2013). Furthermore, this "feedback disability" creates dysfunction that contributes to the organization's inability to effectively and efficiently achieving its strategic objectives and serve customers. Fearless Feedback is a leadership model and set of tools that enable organizations to correct this disability. The Fearless Feedback tools and techniques can help anyone to improve the work environment so employees take responsibility for their own development and willingly improve the quality of their interactions. Fearless Feedback results in higher quality communication between individuals and departments. It enables employees to take greater personal responsibility for their development and for their results without depending upon management for feedback and without the fear of criticism. Fearless Feedback ultimately results in superior quality improvement of an organization's products and services. In this step-by-step presentation, participants will learn: - A leadership model and tools that enable anyone to improve their ability to facilitate the most effective performance discussions - Why and how our leadership must evolve to address these enormous economic and human resource challenges - How to start the evolution for yourself and your co-workers - Two Tools that can begin to create a workplace environment that results in Fearless Feedback - What you can do now to adopt the Fearless Feedback model and incorporate it into your typical performance appraisal.
