The Spine of a Leader

Would you like to be a leader who is courageous in tough times?

The Spine of a Leader

If you are a leader in your organization, then chances are you have had to make a hard decision or two. From employees’ personal issues to difficult ethical dilemmas, sometimes your job provides you with more challenge than you bargained for. The Spine of the Leader module will provide you with a blueprint for how to work through these difficult situations.

We will focus on how you can tie in the various tools that you have learned over the course of the curriculum – from neuroscience to DiSC styles – to prepare an effective action plan next time you face a challenging situation. We realize that each situation is unique, and rather than focusing on general case studies, this will be an opportunity to bring to light real workplace issues that you are currently facing.

By the end of this session, you will be able to:

  • • Recognize why courage is an important leadership trait when faced with opposition, challenges and obstacles
  • • Apply the Bottom, Middle, Top Oshry systems thinking model to your organization and use it to better understand your relationships with others
  • • Prepare for, and effectively conduct, a difficult conversation that you need to have with someone at work
