Leadership Style and Versatility

October 22nd 2020 08:00 am to 4:00 pm at Golden Valley Training Center

Leadership means getting work done through other people – which  requires influence skills.  Research shows that the most effective leader-managers have developed a specific set of influence skills: skills in Style Awareness and Versatility. During the program they learn about the strengths and potential blind spots of their own style and that of others. They also learn to identify other people’s styles and how to adjust their style to relate more comfortably with others. A focus is placed on applying understanding of style differences and versatility to issues of supervision and leadership.
