Getting Back to Basics for 'New Normal' Leadership Development of Soft Skills (bring your own coffee/tea and snacks, 8:30-10:30 AM).
For the last three years, leaders in organizations have been trying to simply survive . . . keeping their families together, their teams together, productively getting work done in a remote and virtual world and most importantly keeping themselves on the right track. All of this “survival energy” has left little room for professional and leadership development.
Now that the world has emerged with a “new normal,” it is time for organizations and their leaders to go back to leadership basics. What does this mean? It means to go back to looking at the skills that leaders need to move ahead. Specifically, “soft skills”
-- Some Examples of Soft Skills.
The above examples list is by no means exhaustive, it is simply the tip of the iceberg. Today’s leaders are hungry for these basic skills to get them to maximize their productivity and effectiveness.
The program is designed to be interactive, as we go back to basics and discuss what tools those attending have used, over the years in their practices, to help leaders develop and enhance their leadership soft skills. We will have several volunteers do short presentations (4 minutes each) on their favorite tools. Then, we will break into smaller groups to discuss what was presented. The goal of these break-out groups will be to explore and discuss how these tools could be used to help today’s current leaders individually, within their teams, or with their customers. We look forward to rich discussion and take-aways that we can all use in our individual practices and beyond.
