Abstract / Overview

Leadership is different than management. Both are necessary to run an organization well. Management is the organization of work, while leadership is inspiring a team to meet a common goal. The U.S. Army’s leadership model is “Be – Know – Do.” “Be” is your personal values, what you expect, what your team can expect from you, what you won’t tolerate. Who you are as a person is who you are as a leader. Leadership is about the personal connection. “Know” is knowing basic leadership skills. How to communicate, coach, set goals and hold people accountable. “Do” is being who you are and applying what you know and behaving how you know you should act every day. Bridging the “Know-Do” gap is the key to being a good leader.

During this session I will help you understand who you are as a leader and provide a proven tool to help you communicate this to your team; addressing the “Be.” I will also cover some of the key leadership skills that every leader needs; addressing the “Know.” We’ll do some exercises to include analyzing some video clips during the session to help your understanding. Finally, I’ll provide tools to help you bridge the “Know-Do” gap and become a better leader. Come prepared to engage – good leaders are not passive!
