Description

This class discusses and explores your leadership philosophy, which is a summation of all the convictions, principles, and rules of conduct that guide you in your life and your leadership.

We will guide you through a process to help you draft a first version of your leadership philosophy by asking you lots of questions to help you crystallize the personal convictions, principles and ­­­rules of conduct you believe in and seek to honor in how you live and lead every day.

Taking the time to articulate your leadership philosophy will enable you to become more intentional about your leadership – i.e. it will provide you with an explicit platform to hold yourself accountable.

It will help you truly walk your talk, which as you know is fundamental to your leadership credibility. However, articulating your leadership philosophy is not just for your own benefit.

It will also help you share more easily with your team what they can expect from you as their leader and how you expect them to go about their work.

To help you articulate your leadership philosophy, we will look at how you live and lead from 4 different angles:

  1. Leading yourself: In this section of your leadership philosophy you articulate what propels you in life & work and how you manage yourself to achieve things in life and work.
  2. Leading your people: In this section of your leadership philosophy you describe what kind of relationship you want to have with each of your team members and how you want to interact with your people.
  3. Leading for performance: This part of your leadership philosophy you outline how you believe your people need to behave to successfully perform their jobs.   
  4. Leading a Whole life: This final part of your leadership philosophy is about the boundaries you set and adhere – both for yourself as a leader and for your people – to help you more successfully manage the integration of your work and personal life.

Once we have worked through all that, you will have a comprehensive first draft of your leadership philosophy and we will finish the class with a lecture on how to put it to use. Because writing it is only the beginning. A leadership philosophy that ends up in your drawer or hidden in a folder on your laptop is of no use at all. However, when you follow our guidance on how to put it to real use, it has the power to exponentially improve your leadership effectiveness.

Who is the target audience?
  • For existing and emerging leaders to reflect, review, define and refine your behavior as a leader
  • This is a Master Class, designed for people who are ready to become more intentional about how they show up as a leader every day
  • This is not for people who are looking for "leadership tricks". This course is for people who are willing to do the necessary self-reflection to discover their authentic self as a leader
