If you follow Monday Moments with Monica, you may have noticed our progression this month from identifying high performers to developing your leadership brand to the value of improving communication skills in the workplace. To be a good leader and become a better leader, one must focus on all the facets that make this possible: communication, confidence, reputation, perception, delegation and of course, action, among others. Once you have the desire to be a leader, if it is a new role, perhaps a simple leadership training class IS your next step.

This quick online assessment shows you clues as to how you lead and why employees respond the way they do. Leadership Horsepower - Team Horsepower - Leadership development requires training in both the 'hard' skills of planning, strategy and decision making, as well as training the 'soft' skills, such as interpersonal effectiveness, social and emotional intelligence.
Leadership Horsepower delivers revolutionary leadership, behaviour and communication training programs that are practical, effective and transformational.
Utilising cutting edge emotional intelligence theory and the superior effectiveness of Equine Assisted Learning (EAL), our leadership training delivers amazing results.
In order to increase emotional intelligence we must appeal to the limbic system (the emotional center of the brain), therefore the experiential learning must trigger similar emotions to real life scenarios. As you know, there are many ways to 'do' leadership, however we are actually remembered for 'how' we led. At Leadership Horsepower we pride ourselves in being a leader in developing and harnessing the power of emotional intelligence. Completing the personal horsepower course has been a massive leap forward for me in my own personal development and effectiveness. By improving leadership skills and applying them to specific organizational change challenges, WSA has been able to achieve an exceptionally high rate of success in assisting organizations to achieve successful implementation of improvement in organizational competence and performance. WSA has been offering this unique Leadership Development Program for more than twenty-five years with thousands of managers and leaders across the globe.

The program typically includes seven formal one-day modules offered over seven months, along with a wide variety of supporting informal learning activities and on-the-job applications between the instructional modules.
Companies sponsor this program when they have a cadre of leaders that they wish to develop, and would also like their development to be immediately applied in the work environment, addressing organizational needs. The business and economic climate is more challenging today than ever before and not likely to get any easier. Knowledge workers require a different way of being managed, and respond to a different type of leadership. Financial pressures require that organizations do more and more with less and less every year. Leadership and management skills are among the most critical resources for facing these challenges. This program has been designed for individuals who have significant management or leadership responsibilities. For smaller organizations, the program is best suited to Presidents, Vice Presidents and Directors. Availability of one-on-one coaching or personal development for any participants in need of extra support.
Develop leadership and management skills to complement the technical competence of your organization. Increase the leadership bench strength your organization will need to continue its success in the future. Solve some of your company's persistent problems as program participants apply the program elements to real-time company situations under the guidance of the group consultant.
Develop strong learning teams (functional or cross-functional team building) for companies that choose to send a learning team.
Give your next generation of leaders the skills they need to help prepare your company for the challenges that lie ahead. This program contains a number of elements designed to provide fully integrated, self-reinforcing learning experiences. The integrating vehicle for the program are the seven one-day facilitated sessions delivered in an action learning (workshop) style.
The sessions evolve in complexity as the leadership model is developed through the program.
To ensure that learning is highly interactive, a maximum of 30 participants may be enrolled in a program. In addition to the highly developed program content, each group applies the content through real-time organizational issues and problems. In addition to the information required for the workshops, other related materials are included as well for reference. To help ensure application of the concepts and skills developed in the program, learning teams are formed to reinforce personal action plans and on-the-job applications. Learning teams may represent existing segments of the organization, or they may be designed as cross-functional teams. If learning teams are not pre-set, then the group will be divided into different teams each module, to further reinforce the cross-functional learning opportunities presented through the program design. Before, during and after the program feedback sessions are offered to the managers of the participants and to the senior executives of the sponsoring organization. Because this program is conducted over seven months with multiple experiences to tie the learning together the program can focus on real-time action learning and implementation issues.
First, each participant maintains a personal Action Planner that serves as the glue between the sessions. Second, learning teams are created and used to identify and apply real-time work issues through collective action. Third, assignments are given to both individuals and learning teams for real-time work applications between the learning sessions.
The first segment - Modules 1-2 - focuses on personal and interpersonal leadership skills and styles. The middle section - Modules 3, 4 and 5 - addresses concepts and skills related to performance management and team development. The team development module builds universal teambuilding competence, and may also be designed around specific real-time teams under development or in need of enhancement. The final section - Modules 6 and 7 - broadens into organizational design and strategic skills.

In order to run a successful business or program a basic understanding of the numbers is essential. It may seem to be a disjointed direction, but they are all connected and the crux of real leadership skills.
This is why as a leadership development expert I often receive feedback that my posts seem all over the place. That means that no matter if you’re driven, ambitious, type A, or a Commander, or quiet, conservative, laid back, loyal and a Relater, you can lead.

If you’ve been a leader for a while, frolic in the executive ranks, then your need is more geared toward an individual, credible, executive coach that can help you develop the finer skills of leading you can’t see simply because you’re too close to your own behavior. You might be the most fantastic leader to the team you lead now, but what happens when they promote you to lead a different area of expertise?
We value each participants experience and input and we support them through our programs with follow-up business coaching to ensure that change and action happens. Validated in use by small and large companies alike, the program enhances the skills of active leaders and managers while developing organizational competence through the real-time problem-solving exercises built into the program design. While the overall content is based on a validated development model, both content and application may be customized to meet the unique needs of each sponsoring organization. This model is particularly effective during times of organizational growth, organizational change, or in response to significant shifts in the external market or business environment. This may include functional (departmental) management responsibilities, cross-functional team responsibilities or other similar leadership roles. The following is a brief description the core program elements included in this total learning experience. These sessions are typically held one month apart, and are all conducted personally by Seasoned WSA consultants.
A detailed description of the program content is provided in subsequent sections of this brochure. The participants receive a valuable set of resource materials that can be used in many aspects of their work.
Sometimes they are selected to address a particular organizational challenge, or address common customer issues. Individuals may call for personal discussion or coaching, or share materials for feedback via fax or email. These sessions include ways to enhance the learning and application of each of the participants, and also provide feedback regarding any organizational issues or opportunities that are identified in the program. This action planner is used to record both personal notes and plans at key points in every workshop session. The class becomes a fully integrated real-work action laboratory in which ideas and activities are developed in the workshop, tried out on-the-job, and feedback is provided both between sessions and in the next formal workshop experience.
Recent research has validated the primal nature of emotional intelligence as fundamental to successful leadership. Performance management has been proven to be the single most highly leveraged system for increasing individual productivity and organizational performance. Leadership skills in developing a vision, setting strategy and guiding large scale organizational change to achieve that vision are included in this higher level segment of the program. Specific, targeted organizational change challenges create the learning lab for application of the skills being taught.

Nancy is a Certified Fraud Examiner and member of the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners. Funders and donors often judge us by our financials and our ability to communicate what the numbers mean. Leadership is just one thing and the simple and singular concept of leadership, isn’t everything we need. Whatever the skills are that you need to become a better leader, remember that skill development is only one aspect of how well you lead. What happens when a layoff is announced and you must counsel those who are RIF’d and work through survivor’s guilt of those who stay?
While the statement “leadership is not everything” may make you tilt your head to the side like the old RCA dog, the point here is that talking about Leadership as if it is clearly definable and single dimensional isn’t reality. Monica Wofford is an internationally acclaimed leadership development expert who engages audiences and teaches them how to become better leaders. WSA has developed the program and implemented it successfully with executives at all levels throughout North and South America, Europe and the Middle East. Examples have included performance management systems, continuous improvement systems, development of organizational culture, customer feedback and satisfaction systems, implementation of major change initiatives, implementation of enterprise-wide software systems, etc. They have been validated and continuously refined over a twenty-five year period, applied with more than five hundred corporations throughout North America and Europe, and used directly by more than 20,000 managers and leaders. This section helps the participants examine their personal and interpersonal leadership styles and develop additional skills and tools for their leadership roles.
Content in these modules includes setting expectations, developing performance measures, providing feedback, coaching and counseling, and conducting reviews that enhance performance.
Other topics may also include project management, continuous improvement, or creating a customer-focused organizational culture.
Sessions on public speaking, leading a team and working with different personality styles will help prepare you to be a well-rounded dentist. To do his work, Shawn has traveled to 51 countries, speaking to farmers in Zimbabwe, CEOs in China, doctors in Dubai and schoolchildren in South Africa.
Trainer, consultant, and coach Margarita Sarmiento will explain how unconscious bias impacts our beliefs, values, and actions—and contributes to corporate cultures that either foster or quash diversity and inclusion. Turman has managed capital and endowment campaigns for the Vero Beach Museum of Art, the Polk Museum of Art, the Gulf Coast Museum of Art, the South Tampa YMCA, Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church of Clearwater. Nancy is a Summa Cum Laude graduate of the University of Wisconsin with a degree in finance.
How that Commander does it will simply look different and attract different followers than how that Relater does it. The same is true of communication, delegation, recognition, motivation, strategic planning, determining compensation, managing public persona, interacting with your boards even when you don’t wanna… okay so that was just so I could rhyme… these are all skills, not the sum total of what you need to lead.
You’ll have new opportunities to practice new skills from new circumstances as often as you can keep up. Perhaps it is best said that while leadership as one concept isn’t “everything”, indeed it is possible that everything is relevant to leadership.
Sometimes, the “life skills” needed to be a successful business owner, team leader and people manager are not taught in dental school. In 2014, Oprah Winfrey did a two hour interview with Shawn on the science of happiness and meaning. Carm is widely admired for her straightforward talk and sense of humor and for offering all in her audience practical, achievable wellness strategies and solutions.
Loblack has tested the methods he teaches, which resulted in his own personal accomplishments of finishing his undergraduate degree in only three years, completing his Ph.D.
Nancy is also the current Chairman of the Board of Directors for the Morton Plant Mease Foundation. In fact, I’ve often wondered what it would look like if Ghandi had been this aggressive, fast talking, action-oriented type of guy.
Don’t let your desire to be “done” with learning leadership keep you from learning and practicing the new skills you might need. His research on happiness made the cover of Harvard Business Review, his TED talk is one of the most popular of all time with over 11 million views, and his lecture airing on PBS has been seen by millions.
Not in a way that demands we become all things to all people, but in a way that clearly shows us leadership isn’t a one sentence conversation or five minute training class. Regardless of the specific content, the flow of the modules reflects the expanding circles of competence required by managers and leaders.
