Development isn’t passive. It’s more than letting life experience wash over you. The best leaders understand the benefits of leadership experience and actively mine their experiences for lessons and growth.
Individual contributors are leaders too, shaping the direction and execution of their organization’s strategy as much as those in managerial roles. They also can benefit from leadership development.
The fundamental 4 leadership skills everyone needs, no matter their role, are self-awareness, communication, influence, and learning agility. We believe that every leader should master these core skills so they can understand their impact on others and on organizational outcomes; effectively communicate goals and inspire trust; be comfortable persuading, promoting, and delegating; and know when to change course.
Everyone can benefit from brushing up on the fundamentals of leadership, but our research-backed Lead 4 Success® online course focused on leadership fundamentals is particularly ideal for emerging leaders, professional staff with no direct reports, first-time managers who have been in role for 6 to 12 months, and leaders with 3 to 5 years of experience.
