Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Leadership is a relationship-building skill.

Leadership is a tough concept for some people to understand. They need to understand leadership is primarily a relationship-building skill and less importantly, a management-organizational skill. If managers and supervisors can build trust through effective leadership, amazing success can happen.

Why don't leaders succeed? They don't realize that truly effective leadership requires an "other-centered" approach when dealing with employees. To be successful in that approach, leaders must have a rather high level of self-esteem and self-confidence. Leaders must also have the vision to see how leadership affects those around them. They must have faith that when their workers are provided with the necessary tools and time to do a good job, they will.

This short course will cover these topics and much more. We'll look at the characteristics of effective leadership, including John Maxwell's Five Levels of Leadership, the Three Leadership Styles, and the many ways leaders can demonstrate leadership in the workplace.
