Zenger Folkman is proud to offer six, research-based, micro learning opportunities; each focused on a leadership capability that is key for leading successfully during times of crisis. Jack Zenger and Joe Folkman will facilitate a live, interactive virtual session specifically designed to help your organization’s leaders increase their effectiveness during these challenging times.
Our working environment is changing by the minute. Leadership speed is fast becoming a required skill for today’s highly effective leaders. Research shows that a leader’s ability to execute fast and execute right dramatically improves an organization’s results.
Leaders learn the key behaviors that will help them navigate the demand for greater agility, innovation, and pace. In addition, they take a self-assessment to identify their personal preferences across three spectrums directly correlated to leadership speed and receive a development tool to help them lead with speed.
The one skill that our research shows has the most impact on leading effectively during a crisis is the ability to communicate powerfully. Most leaders are good at keeping those they lead informed. But there is a big difference between leaders who simply inform others and those who communicate powerfully.
Leaders take a self-assessment to help them understand their natural inclinations when it comes to communicating to others. They learn the five behaviors that will significantly improve their ability to communicate with impact and receive a development tool to help them create an action plan to communicate powerfully now.
In today’s complex environment, leaders must boldly step forward with a willingness to take on new goals, challenge standard approaches, and push boundaries. Our research has identified the balance of behaviors that highly effective bold leaders use to influence others.
Leaders learn a simple, practical approach to improve their ability to
effectively influence others. They take a brief self-assessment and receive development tools to help them understand the specific steps they can take to lead boldly as they face uncertain times.
In our current environment, leaders may find themselves pushing others to achieve the results necessary for the organization’s success. However, the research is clear. The ability for leaders to pull others towards the goal is the supreme leadership capability. Inspiring and motivating others is the best leading predictor of employee commitment and satisfaction during times of tranquility or crisis. Yet, it is the behavior that leaders struggle with most.
Leaders take a self-assessment to understand their natural inclination for pushing or pulling others. They learn the ten behaviors that highly inspirational leaders use to motivate others. Using a research-based development tool, they create a personally relevant plan to improve their ability to inspire those they lead.
In times of heightened stress and uncertainty, people need to trust their leaders more than ever. However, understanding how to earn or establish trust is perplexing for many leaders. Zenger Folkman’s research has revealed three leadership behaviors that form the foundation of trust.
Leaders take a self-assessment to help them understand their inclination for the three key foundational behaviors. They learn how they can improve trust for themselves and their teams. Using the development tools provided, they create an actionable plan to improve the level of trust they establish with others.
During this time of crisis, we have noticed a significant decline in the resilience of employees and leaders alike. With so much unexpected and unplanned change, it is no surprise. But how can we help individuals and organizations to not only survive, but thrive amidst the constantly shifting landscape? With leaders planning the future of their organizations while managing the current unexpected challenges, now is the time when resilience is most needed.
Participants will learn why resilience is a critical behavior for leaders, and the five key actions that our research shows improve resilience. They’ll receive instant results from our well-being self-assessment and will use our development guide to help rebuild resilience and improve as a leader.
