Do you know that the Ideal Leader does not exist?

It’s true.
A single leader, no matter how functional, will eventually become dysfunctional because, over time, as the organization grows, that single executive will falter. The qualities that made him or her successful in the past can be the reason for failing in the future. In reality, one person, even someone extraordinary, can perform only one or, at most, two of the roles required to manage/lead an organization.
Building a company requires a complementary team. It needs collaborative leadership, a team of leaders who differ in their styles yet complement one another.
But here is the problem: A complementary team, since it is, by definition, composed of different styles, generates conflict. So, although conflict is good, although it is necessary and indispensable, it can be destructive and dysfunctional.
What is needed to avoid this potential dysfunctional and destructive conflict is collaborative leadership based on Mutual Trust and Respect.
Does your organization operate with mutual trust and respect? If not, you may discover that the value we provide in showing you how to create a complementary team is precisely what you need right now. Why? Because creating a complimentary team and understanding the foundation for establishing a culture in which your team will thrive is simply essential in today’s extremely competitive marketplace.

When you attend an exclusive Leading the Leaders presentation, you’ll get answers to the following questions that are vital to the success of your organization:

            • Do we have the right culture to handle change in our organization?
          • What is the management style of our key people?
          • Do our people understand how to work with others who have a different management style than their own?
          • Do we know how to turn destructive conflict into constructive conflict?
          • In our corporate structure, do we have the right people in the right roles?
          • Do we know how to recognize and develop future leaders?
          • What should a leader look like in our organization?
          • Is it possible to change behavior?
          • How can you REALLY develop a balanced, complementary team?

You Should Attend If:

You, or one of your top management executives is responsible for leading teams of people. From top management down, the principles learned will make your management process more effective. To get the maximum value out of this exclusive event, you should attend with key members of your team or the future leaders that you plan to develop.
While some of the content is delivered through lecture, the majority of the learning happens in exercises and group discussion that allow you to apply the concepts to real world challenges you may be facing in your organization.
