More and more leaders are leading in environments of rapid disruption — and they’re leading teams who aren’t co-located. Today, with increased travel restrictions and reduced budgets, that has intensified. This online effective leadership training program prepares leaders for the ever-changing needs of the new world of work by developing critical skills needed to succeed: leading virtual teams, building resiliency, collaborating with others, and solving complex challenges.

What Will I Learn in This Online Effective Leadership Training?

As a result of participating in this online effective leadership course, you’ll be able to:

  • Understand the impact your personality and behaviors have on others.
  • Provide more effective feedback to colleagues and subordinates.
  • Use CCL’s Direction-Alignment-Commitment™ framework as a tool to understand leadership in organizations.
  • Maintain resilience while handling uncertainty and solving complex problems.
  • Lead and collaborate virtually across organizational and geographical boundaries.

Who Should Take This Effective Leadership Course?

Mid-to-senior level leaders who lead other managers; operational, group, or department managers; or leaders who work up, down and across the organization should attend this online effective leadership training.

Challenges Addressed in This Online Effective Leadership Program

CCL understands that today’s mid-to-senior level leaders face similar challenges:

  • Leading virtual teams for high impact results.
  • Collaborating across the organization — across the globe.
  • Maintaining resiliency while handling uncertainty, solving problems, and dealing with interconnected systems.
  • Tackling big priorities on all fronts.
  • As leaders balance demanding jobs and roles outside of work, a clear understanding of one’s own leadership style and clarity around development goals is imperative for success.

What Participants Are Saying About The Effective Leader Program:

            This was the best virtual training I’ve ever attended. The facilitators were excellent. Not a minute was wasted. Zoom was used creatively to maximize participation in a virtual setting. I learned a ton of practical leadership skills that I will now be able to apply to the benefit of my organization. I also learned a lot about myself in the process.

            You’re never “done” learning how to be a good leader. This training helped with resiliency, narrowing in on goals to tackle difficult issues, and sharing anecdotal stories with peers on how to move through a “Key Leadership Challenge.” It was such an enjoyable experience and I would highly recommend this to anyone hoping to gain more insight and confidence in their career.
