Developing People

Your role as a leader is to bring out the best in others, even when they know more than you. These topics will address necessary conversations to have with your team to develop trusting relationships and to recognize and celebrate people’s talents.

  • Develop others by helping them to perform to their best.
  • Recognize and seek to overcome personal and unconscious biases through being inclusive and valuing diversity.
  • Adapt your leadership approach based upon the individual and/or situation.
  • Inspire and promote a positive attitude among others.
  • Develop trusting relationships.
Team leaders and team members need to invest time and attention to build trust within their teams - and in a virtual environment, specific challenges must be considered.

Do your remote workers and virtual team members struggle to communicate, build trust, and reach high performance?  We offer seven suggestions to expand your influence to get better results.

If you are a team supervisor, this podcast will help you make the most of everyone’s potential and delegate to underutilized team members. Or, maybe you’re a leader of project teams? We will also discuss how to create a shared vision among team members to get people to work together more efficiently. CEOs, don’t worry; we have you covered and have some tips to help you measure the achievement of team deliverables via collective leadership.

This course is for people who are bosses, those who manage the work of others (project managers who don’t supervise the people working on your project), and even for those who want to be a boss in the future. Being a good boss requires knowing how people are different, how these differences affect the best ways to communicate with others, and how to find out what motivates people. The best thing to do when beginning this exploration is to learn more about yourself and then about the people you supervise, work with, manage, and lead.

This course is for people who are coaching or mentoring. You may have a job title with the word coach or mentor in it, you may be a leader who wants to add coaching to your interactions, or you may be a project manager but not directly supervising the people working on your project. Being a good coach, mentor, leader who coaches, or project manager requires knowing how people are different, how these differences affect the best ways to communicate with others, and how to find out what motivates people.  The best thing to do when beginning this exploration is to learn more about yourself and then about the people you coach, mentor, and lead.

This course is for anyone on a team. You may be the “official” leader, part of a team that has a shared
