Confident – cooperative – effective

0 Ratings

In this seminar, you will have the chance to reflect on your personal situation when leading without authority and acquire the essential skills of lateral leadership.

Organizations today are characterized by ever flatter hierarchical structures. Thus, leading people outside of one's formal line of authority as well as being a reliable internal business partner to peers is becoming increasingly important. At the same time, this is a very particular challenge. 
In this seminar, you will take a close look at your individual situation and explore what it takes to act confidently outside your direct reporting lines. You will learn that clear and appreciative communication has a motivational impact on people's commitment to their dedicated tasks on the one hand, as well as their trust in you and your leadership skills on the other.
