Genius or Genius Maker: Adapting Your Leadership Style to Boost Employee Performance

Full-day Course
As managers, we often get comfortable with a style of leadership that is generally effective for us—but is it always right for our employees? Are we too hands on when we should be stepping back? If we are under or over supervising, we might actually be draining the capability and intelligence from a team or individual. One of the most essential skills of an effective manager is to learn to “multiply” team intelligence and capabilities by fostering employee independence. In this workshop, we will look closely at what it takes to tap into our employees’ potential, and what we may unwittingly be doing to block employee growth and accountability.
