How busy leaders thrive
- By Stephana Gaudin
- Jun 03 2019
As a leader, you have probably sat down and come up with plans. You've seen the future, and it's full of success for you and your organization. You're going to be the best leader anyone's ever seen, with the happiest employees. What happens when those plans don't account for, well, the unexpected?
Even with the best intentions, it's impossible to predict what may be coming down the pipeline. However, there are tactics you can put in place so that when instances of extra stress occur, you are prepared to deal with these moments without it affecting the well-being of your employees, customers and other stakeholders. You also need to know how to manage yourself, how to learn to say no, and how to manage work/life balance. Being a great leader means getting the fundamentals right, but it also means consistently doing the "little things" (for both you and your employees) that make a positive difference.
Studer Community Institute’s founder, Quint Studer, will be providing the attendees of his workshop, The Busy Leader’s Handbook Series, the tools they need for not just these intense moments, but for every day. Quint draws on his 30+ years of experience in helping organizations of all sizes and leaders at every level reach peak performance. Comprehensive in scope, this workshop series overflows with insights and practical advice to help you make smart leadership decisions. By having plans in place and being prepared, you will no longer be caught off guard when things get hectic.
That sounds uncomfortable…
Part of Quint’s discussion will be about the uncomfortable moments in leadership. This includes things like giving and receiving critical feedback. By attending this workshop, you will not only receive the tools needed to identify high, middle and low performing team members, but you’ll learn how to deal with giving them the feedback they need to improve or sustain their performance.
What else will I learn?
This will be the second session of a two-part series based off of Quint’s upcoming book, The Busy Leader’s Handbook: How to Lead People and Places that Thrive. Don’t worry if you missed the first session; you will still be provided with useful tips and tactics that you can put into action right away.
During this session, you will learn best practices, tools, tips, and tactics for:
• Engaging employees
• Revitalizing your company culture
• Delighting customers
• Building a high-performing company
Some of the main topics that will be covered:
• Why being unsettled creates the greatest type of leadership
• How to be up front and transparent
• How to be self-aware and coachable
• How to be a good follower
• The importance of filling in (instead of rising above)
• How to manage yourself in stressful/busy times
• How not to take things personally as a leader
• How to figure out other’s “whats” – and communicate your own
Who should attend?
While we use the term “leader” in the description of this series, let’s clear up who Studer Community Institute considers a leader.
• Business owners
• Manager/HR managers
• Leaders new to their role
• Anyone interested in developing their skills and taking on new challenges and responsibilities
Don’t let your job title keep you from leading. ANYONE can be a leader. It’s up to you to develop your skills and knowledge.
