Description

We ​hear ​the ​word ​“strategic” ​a ​lot. ​ ​It ​has ​become ​a ​buzz ​word, ​but ​what ​does ​it ​mean? ​ ​What ​are ​the ​behaviors ​or ​activities ​that ​are ​associated ​with ​strategic ​leadership? ​ ​Just ​because ​you ​have ​a ​strategic ​plan ​doesn’t ​mean ​you ​are ​being ​strategic. ​ ​Traditionally, ​leaders ​think ​if ​they ​accomplish ​the ​goals ​and ​objectives ​on ​the ​strategic ​plan; ​they ​are ​being ​strategic. ​ ​

Strategic ​leadership ​is ​more ​than ​just ​checking ​off ​tasks. ​ ​It’s ​the ​ability ​to ​anticipate, ​envision, ​maintain ​flexibility, ​and ​work ​with ​others ​to ​initiate ​and ​manage ​change ​that ​furthers ​an ​organization’s ​vision ​and ​mission. ​ ​It ​must ​involve ​all ​levels ​of ​the ​organization.

For ​those ​charged ​with ​leading ​the ​strategic ​plan, ​identifying ​and ​developing ​strategic ​leaders, ​and ​for ​the ​mission-driven ​non-profits, ​it ​is ​vitally ​important ​to ​connect ​your ​activities ​and ​strategies ​to ​improve ​and ​grow ​the ​organization ​as ​well ​as ​effectively ​communicate ​who ​you ​are. ​ ​Understanding ​the ​key ​factors ​that ​are ​involved ​in ​strategic ​leadership ​will ​allow ​a ​more ​thoughtful, ​planned, ​and ​timed ​implementation ​work ​plan ​for ​any ​new ​or ​change ​initiatives. ​ ​

Bring ​your ​real ​life ​challenges ​to ​this ​experiential ​workshop ​and ​engage ​in ​opportunities ​to ​put ​the ​tools ​to ​work ​with ​fresh ​eyes ​and ​shared ​wisdom ​in ​the ​room.

(This ​workshop ​is ​designed ​for ​team ​leaders, ​supervisor, ​managerial ​staff) ​

Participant ​Outcomes:
1. ​Understand ​activities ​and ​behaviors ​that ​define ​strategic ​leadership
2. ​Identify ​actions ​and ​behaviors ​related ​to ​strategic ​leadership ​on ​two ​axioms: ​ ​a) ​Productivity—managing ​tasks, ​outcomes, ​goals, ​results; ​ ​b) ​Positivity—establishing, ​building, ​maintaining, ​and ​growing ​relationships, ​trust, ​loyalty ​and ​engagement
3. ​Identify, ​understand, ​and ​practice ​meta ​skills ​needed ​to ​be ​a ​strategic ​leader
