You don't need a title to be a leader.

Effective leaders are not born, they're made. And they're not just found in the corner offices and at the tops of org charts. In all levels of an organization, there are motivated, self-directed employees who are refining their talents, raising performance bars, and delivering powerful results. And as often as not, it's because they were given the opportunity to develop their leadership skills, even though they don't hold a formal management or leadership position.

High Gear provides a powerful opportunity for talented, non-managers to develop their leadership abilities so they can maximize their effectiveness now, and in the future.

The Achiever's Edge:  A Workshop for Personal and Professional Growth - February 20 - 21, 2018 at the Loyola University Graduate Center in Timonium, Maryland USA

This intensive, two-day workshop is designed to help employees at any level to become more productive by teaching basic self-leadership skills. By learning more effective self-management skills,  participants will be better able to meet their own performance and advancement goals. Bottom line: Before you can lead others, you have to know how to lead yourself.

Day One—Personal Self-Management and Self-Direction

Module 1—Positive Self-Awareness: Living Without Limitations

Participants will explore how self-imposed barriers and paradigms limit job performance. Participants will learn how to create personal strategies that help a person  "get out of their own way" and break the internal barriers that keep them from realizing their full potential.

Module 2—Positive Self-Direction: Personal and Professional Goal Setting

Participants learn techniques for establishing short- and long-term personal and professional goals. During this session, your people will formulate an actual business goal and take it back and present to their manager / supervisor.  This is learning by doing.

Day Two—Self-Awareness, Leadership and Communications

Module 3—Self-Discovery Process

Participants go through the High Gear Self Discovery Process to gain valuable insights about themselves across three areas of assessment: their work style behaviors, internal motivators, and emotional intelligence.  Understanding strengths and weaknesses in each of these three areas is essential to helping employees maximize their leadership skills development. Participants will take this assessment back and present to their manager. This is learning by doing.

Module 4— 360 Degree Leadership

99% of all leadership comes from the middle of an organization.  Many people associate leadership with a title or position within a company.  In this module participants will explore the myths that prevent regular employees from developing their leadership in the workplace.  Based on the award winning book from John Maxwell (The 360 Degree Leader) and combined with practical leadership theory, this module expands on four main themes:

  • Leadership 101 - What Is It and How Do I Get Some?
  • The Principles 360 Degree Leaders Practice to Lead Up
  • The Principles 360 Degree Leaders Practice to Lead Across
  • The Principles 360 Degree Leaders Practice to Lead Down
