Leadership and Influence

Leadership and Influence

INTRODUCTION


Welcome to the Leadership and Influence workshop! They say that leaders are born, not made. While it is true that some people are born leaders, some leaders are born in the midst of adversity. Often, simple people who have never had a leadership role will stand up and take the lead when a situation they care about requires it. A simple example is parenting. When a child arrives, many parents discover leadership abilities they never knew existed in order to guide and protect their offspring. There are countless war stories of simple GI’s and sailors who rose to a challenge on their own in the heat of battle.

WHAT DOES THE LEADERSHIP AND INFLUENCE COURSE ENTAIL?


The leadership and influence course entails all there needs to know about the evolution of leadership and how to lead within various situations. Leadership and influence goes hand in hand to inspire others to act and share the same vision. This course entails learning about ways in which leaders can adapt to different styles of leadership to establish action plans and goals.

WHY SHOULD I STUDY THIS COURSE?


Clearly, leadership potential exists within each of us. That potential can be triggered by outside events, or it can be learned by exploring ourselves from within. This training takes the latter approach. Once you learn the techniques of true leadership, you will be able to build the confidence it takes to take the lead. The more experience you have acting as a genuine leader, the easier it will be for you. It is never easy to take the lead, as you will need to make decisions and face challenges, but it can become natural and rewarding.
