If a team isn’t getting results, it’s common to ask: Is there a leadership problem here? While the person in charge may have issues, a leadership problem doesn’t necessarily mean you have a “leader” problem.
Leadership isn’t just about the people at the top, but is a social process, enabling individuals to work together as a cohesive group to produce collective results. When a leadership process in a group is effective, it generates 3 crucial outcomes: direction, alignment, and commitment (DAC).
By assessing where your group stands in each of these outcomes, you can plan and implement the changes necessary to get better results.
This webinar will share the Center for Creative Leadership’s 3-step process to identify DAC issues in groups, which includes:
- Assessing current levels of DAC
- Examining potential factors contributing to low levels of DAC
- Identifying changes that could improve DAC
Audience: Internal HR and Training & Development professionals and Business Unit Leaders, Team Leaders or Project Leaders
