Re-Imagine & Elevate Your Leadership Skills with Solution-Focused Leadership – For all of those out there who were not born leaders, it is very possible to learn to be an effective or even a great leader. Everyone can benefit from developing leadership skills. Skills, such as: how to work well with others, how to communicate effectively, how to be innovative and how and when to take risks; will enable you to reach both your personal and professional goals. The best leaders are those who lead by example and inspire their team. They’re willing and “actually do” what they expect of others. They focus on the positive. When coming up against a challenge or problem, they focus their time and energy on coming- up with an effective solution to resolve the issue or problem. During this workshop, you will learn the 7 Pillars to Excellence, and we will uncover the exact steps to develop and elevate your leadership skills.
1. What’s Leadership – Leadership is the ability to motivate a group of people to work together to achieve a common goal. Leadership is typically discussed in the context of business, but it also refers to how you, as an individual, choose to live your life. Leadership is defined as the ability to influence, inspire, and assist others in becoming their best selves by developing skills and achieving goals along the way. You don’t have to be a CEO, manager or even a team lead to be a leader. Leadership is a set of skills – and a mindset – that anyone can learn.
2. 12 Traits – Personal characteristics that define effective leaders are referred to as leadership traits. Leadership is defined as an individual’s or an organization’s ability to guide individuals, teams, or organizations toward the achievement of goals and objectives. It serves an important role in management by maximizing efficiency and achieving strategic and organizational goals. Leaders inspire others, provide guidance, boost morale, improve the workplace environment, and take action. In this lesson we will reveal the 12 traits of leadership.
3. Leadership Styles – A leadership style is a leader’s method of providing direction, implementing plans, and motivating people. As you gain leadership experience, you will most likely use a variety of processes and methods to achieve your employer’s goals and meet the needs of the employees who report to you. To be an effective manager, you may employ a variety of leadership styles at any given time. In this lesson we will cover the 10 most common leadership styles. By spending the time to become acquainted with each of these types of leadership, you may be able to identify areas in which you can improve or broaden your own leadership style.
4. Leadership Principles – Leadership principles are a set of actions or guiding beliefs that leaders can use to help them succeed. The effectiveness with which a leader motivates and guides their employees determines how well an organization, company, or business performs. Leadership principles are a framework that a leader can take to inspire others to work together toward a common goal—they are the foundation for success.
5. Roles and Responsibilities – A leadership position requires you to manage a situation, a team, or an entire organization in an ethical and effective manner. Leaders have the ability to influence and guide their team in the pursuit of a common goal. They are also in charge of boosting and sustaining employee morale, assisting employees in reaching their full potential, and inspiring employee loyalty. In this course annual we dive deep into the 5 primary roles of a leader, and we share examples of these roles.
6. Leadership Development – Leadership development is any initiative that helps people become better leaders in their businesses, nonprofit organizations, communities, or personal lives. Leadership development is critical to an organization’s long-term success. But what factors contribute to a better leader? How can businesses make more informed decisions about who they hire and promote? We’ll look at why it’s important to develop great leaders as well as some of the modern-day challenges that organizations face and how to navigate those challenges.
7. Servant Leadership – Servant leadership is a style that can assist you in developing strong teams comprised of members who are personally and professionally satisfied and who contribute high-quality work that helps your company succeed. A servant leader shares power, puts the needs of the employees first and helps people develop and perform as highly as possible. Instead of the people working to serve the leader, the leader exists to serve the people. In this lesson, we learn what drives servant leadership, the benefits of this style of leading and some examples.
8. Solution – Focused – The solution-focused leadership approach simply and easily integrates into your existing management structure. The process supports leaders in increasing employees’ decision-making and judgment. The process creates a culture of motivation, focusing on what is working and how to do more of it. Solution-focused leadership develops organizations, teams, and leaders into experts in what works. The value of this method is that by focusing on what you want the solution to be rather than emphasizing the problem, you can devote your time and energy to developing action steps toward the solution. In this course we uncover what solution-focused thinking looks like and we’ll learn some powerful solution-focused strategies.
9. Ask Questions – Today’s leaders must rediscover an underutilized skill: questioning. Leaders frequently assume that people look to them for answers — audacious assertions that boost people’s trust in their abilities. Learning to ask good questions can help you connect with others and establish trust. Thinking collaboratively can help you solve difficult problems and spark creative thinking and increasing cohesion for your team. In this lesson we will cover impactful questions you can ask to help us become the most effective leader we can be.
10. Leadership in Management – The best managers are more than just bosses; they are leaders. Leaders inspire, bosses delegate. Employers are pushed by bosses who make demands; leaders lead by example and draw employees into their own powerful orbit. If you want to be a leader, not just a manager – let’s get ready to dive into this powerful course!
11. Great Leaders – Great leaders come from a variety of backgrounds. They rarely take a predetermined path to leadership. Almost all successful leaders have had to overcome setbacks and failures along the way. For many, this is what defines and motivates their leadership style. In this lesson, we will be sharing a list of some of the greatest leaders of all time. And, while many people now regard them as extraordinary, they were once thought to be ordinary by those around them. This course will inspire you to step into your greatness as a leader.
12. Transformational Leadership – Transformational leadership is a style of leadership that inspires positive change in those who follow. Transformational leaders are typically enthusiastic, energetic, and passionate. Not only are these leaders concerned and involved in the process, but they are also committed to ensuring that every member of the group succeeds. Transformational leadership is when leader behaviors influence followers and inspire them to perform beyond their perceived capabilities. This style of leadership inspires people to achieve unexpected or remarkable results. In this course, we will share the 4 components of transformational leadership and how to effectively implement this leadership style into your life.

A lot of work gets done within your organization. We are surrounded by chaos if it is not coordinated in a reasonable manner.
Leaders play this important role because they have the authority to decide what work is important and what can wait.
Leaders establish strategy and direction so that the organization’s efforts can be focused.
Leaders have traditionally been responsible for establishing and communicating the organization’s vision and mission to their respective groups. Today, however, the job must include leadership development. Once the essentials are in place, leaders must ensure that all members of their team are trained to lead. The best vision in the world will be useless if the team members are unable to execute and move the organization forward.
With today’s fast-paced business environment, digitization, and globalization, it is more important than ever to provide leadership training to all employees to ensure shared leadership. To meet the challenges of retiring executives, overburdened employees and more dispersed organizations, a company’s responsiveness, and decision-making must adapt. Employees are more engaged and motivated when they have a greater say in decision-making. Organizations can also retain high performers and high potentials by providing leadership training to all employees including women.
Training leaders at all levels is an important way to meet these challenges. Leadership can and should be seen at all levels of the organization. Even inexperienced leaders can be taught how to lead. The best managers invest in the development of new leaders so that everyone’s leadership potential grows.
As John Maxwell says “A leader is one who knows the way, goes the way, and shows the way.”
Leading a team to success can be difficult for anyone, whether or not they have previous leadership experience. You must address the team as a whole as well as each individual member of the team. Furthermore, you must instill confidence in the team by setting a good example.
“Listen with curiosity. Speak with honesty. Act with integrity. The greatest problem with communication is we don’t listen to understand. We listen to reply. When we listen with curiosity, we don’t listen with the intent to reply. We listen for what’s behind the words.” ― Roy T. Bennett, The Light in the Heart

While women have been an important part of the workforce since the beginning of time, women in leadership have only recently become a holy grail for major organizations that want to be seen as open and welcoming places to work. The data clearly shows that organizations with a significant representation of women (and other diverse leadership) on their boards and in their executive suites consistently outperform those with more homogeneous leadership. Despite overwhelming evidence that women are good for business, organizations attempting to support women in leadership roles, as well as the women themselves, continue to be frustrated by systemic and cultural barriers to success.
The Elevating Leadership Workshop will provide a proven process to develop your women team members into confident, effective, and influential leaders.
Leadership may come naturally, but it is not always innate. Leadership can be learned through leadership development programs, which create, develop, and improve leadership skills through rigorous education and practice. These abilities can assist in demonstrating why leadership is important.
Leadership is frequently associated with top management, but leadership can occur anywhere, citing good teachers and good students as examples of leaders. It is taking the initiative, showing interest, and pursuing a mission to serve a higher purpose or greater good.
Keep in mind that leadership is not a specific “position” as you develop your leadership training strategies. Everyone has the ability to learn to lead. Organizations cannot afford to ignore the benefits of developing the leadership potential of all employees in today’s business world.
The Elevating Leadership Workshop allows you and your team to re-imagine and elevate your leadership skills. Even those who were not born leaders, they too can learn to be an effective or even a great leader. Everyone can benefit from developing leadership skills. Skills, such as:
