Leadership, as a practice, may be, and often is hard to do. But it doesn't have to be hard to understand. For over three decades I've been a student of leadership development. I've been fortunate to have worked with thousands of leaders across the globe. This course is a collection of all the essential leadership lessons that were taught to me by the thousands of leaders with who I've worked.
Consider this the leadership playbook that will help strengthen your leadership.
And 40% of these new leaders, fail within the first 18 months. So why are these top-performing team members so often underperforming in a leadership role? Most say they lacked the training on how to effectively lead a team.
Some of the top reasons leaders fail include ineffective communication, not listening to their team, and not building and establishing relationships. All this and more will be addressed by Bill Treasurer and his expert guests in the Leadership Essentials Academy.
Often the answer is time. A good leader has learned through many bumps and wrong turns on the path to great leadership. But what if there was a faster way? What if the essential lessons and tools were made easily available and ready to use right now?
A good leader helps those around them achieve at their very highest level. We are working in a knowledge-based economy and your people are your single greatest assets. Great leadership will help attract and retain talent and often training and development will be the deciding factor in whether that great leader stays.
