What is the one key trait top performing organizations are looking for in employees? Emergent Leadership. While traditional models of leadership are typically assigned and leveraged by authority, emerging leaders can inspire, garner respect, and cultivate followers from anywhere in an organization. Teams and organizations that cultivate emerging leadership skills can be more adaptable, manage conflict constructively, and improve employee engagement. Even large corporations like Google and Zappos have recognized the tremendous value in adopting this new style of leadership. Emergent leaders are able to articulate vision, gain influence, and promote the leadership of those around them. Their thought leadership and ability to give thoughtful feedback help them be the change they wish to see in the world.
Participants will explore what emerging leadership is and how it can benefit them, their teams and their organization. It will be especially helpful for those wanting to explore concrete ways to promote employee and human-centered leadership development while serving in a mission-driven organization.
Through experiential activities, participants will review essential intrapersonal, interpersonal and group qualities, competencies and skills to help identify the qualities and benefits of emergent leadership. Together we will compare assigned leadership and emergent leadership, discuss challenges to developing emerging leaders, and create action plans for how to continue a conversation about emerging leadership at your organization. Participants will list and practice emergent leadership skills that they can bring back to their staff.
(This workshop is designed for employees with a high interest and potential for leadership, entry level supervisors, and managers who want to leverage their leadership skills).
