Description

This workshop will provide practical strategies for building workforce courage so workers can become "opportunity seekers". A step-by-step approach for using courage to improve performance and counteract the negative impacts of workplace fear will be introduced. When everyone is working with more courage, the entire organization is transformed for the better. Research shows that courageous workers seek out leadership opportunities, step up to challenges, offer innovative ideas, passionately embrace change, and are more productive. In short, courageous workers get work done!

Key concepts covered in this workshop include:
 
  • Three distinct types of courage and how to differentiate among them
  • How to create an environment that supports courageous behavior
  • The differences between two different leadership dispostions, Fillers (encouragement) and Spillers (discouragement)
  • Tips on how to be more courageous and how to inspire more courageous behavior among those you lead

Learner Outcomes:
 
  • Knowledge of current research about the negative impacts of fear on performance, and how courage can be used to overcome them.
  • How to distinguish between three different, but equally important types of courageous behavior.
  • Specific actions you can take to promote and encourage more courageous behavior within your own work environment.

Who Should Attend:
 
  • Executives who wish to transform their organizations.
  • Independent consultants who wish to build courage in the organizations they serve.
  • New leaders who want to have more confidence, or are struggling with a lack thereof.
  • Emerging leaders or those aiming to have more leadership influence.
