Who should attend
This cohort is recommended for leaders with some experience of managing teams. It’s ideal for anyone looking to take their managerial effectiveness to the next level or to acquire the skills necessary to effectively lead teams.
Now more than ever, people need managers they can trust and rely upon to inspire and lead them to be their best selves. On top of supporting their teams, managers are expected to plan, adapt, communicate and make things happen. For that, a leader must learn to lead with confidence.
Leading Today’s Workforce cohort is a 5-week program (2-hour weekly learning sessions) of interactive workshops where you will learn how to lead with confidence and effectiveness in today's complex world.
Navigating Loneliness for Middle Managers
While middle managers are one of the most populous roles within many organizations, research indicates these leaders often describe themselves as lost, torn between multiple forces, isolated, and thus, lonely. In this workshop, participants will take a deep dive into the experience of loneliness and isolation of middle managers. Participants will gain insight in organizational and interpersonal challenges middle managers face and create an individualized toolkit of practical solutions and actionable mindsets to navigate their own experience of loneliness.
Performance Management: Fundamental Skills
This science-backed workshop explores the nuts-and-bolts of performance management with a focus on defining, planning and supervising goals that hit the sweet spot of challenging and doable (eustress). Participants will also learn frameworks for conducting effective performance reviews. Together with our other courses on managing teams such as Coaching for Managers and Giving and Receiving Feedback, this class rounds out a holistic approach to managing teams for performance and development.
This hands-on approach to empowering diversity and belonging at work engages participants in cutting-edge theory and practices of leading groups of heterogenous people at work – people who are diverse in character or content – all while respecting their uniqueness in an empathetic, bias-free way.Participants will leave this learning session with new practical approaches to expand their capacity to lead themselves and others with an authentic experience of inclusion and belonging for all.
Building Trust with Your Team
Trust is an essential component of leadership that can be challenging to build and easy to lose. We’ve built this class around six key traits of trust, the THREAD model: together, honest, resourceful, empowering, approachable, and dependable. In this course, you will discover where you need to grow and which traits to develop. You will learn actionable steps for becoming a more trustworthy leader. And you will learn what to watch out for when applying these key traits.
Making High-Quality Decisions
This course is for those who make important decisions. It is ideal for situations when you have time, resources, and the ability to aggregate multiple and, hopefully, differing points of view to arrive at the best possible decision. Easy to say, hard to do. Because all of us have a natural and automatic tendency to jump to conclusions, this class is meant to help you temper the rush to judgment with specific, actionable models that balance the benefits of clear-eyed deliberation with our equally beneficial faculty of human insight and intuition.
