Cultivating Your Unique Leadership Skills in this New Environment (Virtual Workshop Recording)

Last updated May 18, 2020

Learn how to build on your strengths as a leader as you manage your team remotely amidst the COVID-19 pandemic.

Overview

Leading during the COVID-19 pandemic requires a new understanding of how you react to stress as a leader, how your team manages stress, and how to build rapport and trust over virtual communication tools.

Session 1: How Do I Lead Under Stress?

You will use a self-assessment tool to help identify your leadership style and then engage in discussions about how to manage and capitalize on your specific style while mitigating the challenges that come with it. You will learn how to use the findings from The Five Paths to Leadership℠ Self-Assessment to better plan for your strengths under normal, as well as stressful conditions.

Session 2: Managing Remote Teams

Our new ways of working remotely have presented unique challenges in terms of overseeing teams and projects. Many supervisors find themselves leading remotely for the first time and are looking for ways to motivate, maintain morale, and ensure accountability for their teams. In this virtual training, we will look at three possible scenarios of team dynamics and discuss how to best lead within each one. You will be asked to share lessons learned as you evolve these new ways of working.
