Free Blanchard Webinar – Leading from Any Chair in the Organization

- May 8, 2012 - 0 Comments

Leadership is not reserved for the people at the top of an organization.

For a team or organization to truly move forward in an aligned and synergistic way, everyone has to be involved and feel that they can contribute in a meaningful way—no matter their role.

You can make a difference and tap your leadership skills. Learn how in this free WebEx webinar on Wednesday, May 23.

In this webinar, Blanchard Senior Consulting Partner Bob Glaser shares three ways you can create a culture where everyone feels a sense of ownership and empowerment and ability to make a difference.

Discover the importance of sharing information freely throughout your organization.
People without information—or incomplete information—make poor business decisions. People with access to complete information make better decisions and feel more committed to them. Ongoing communication is imperative.

Find out how to create alignment and get everyone moving forward in the same direction.
Recent research shows that only 14% of people are truly aligned with their organization’s key goals. You can change that gap.

Learn more about the role empowerment plays.
Find out how to drive empowerment as close to the customer as possible. Make sure that reward and recognition practices encourage people to take action and instill a sense of meaningful work in every employee.

Do your people understand how their role fits in with key business strategies? Is your company encouraging people to seek out and lead from wherever they are positioned in the organization? If not, you’re missing a great opportunity to improve innovation, performance, and passion.

No matter where we sit in the organization, we all have an opportunity to contribute in meaningful ways. Find out how you can be a more valuable contributor.
