Leadership Workshops

Building A Leadership Team

Every team reflects its leaders - think of the leadership team as the nervous system of the corporate body. A system of both direction and response that governs the performance of the organization. As this team develops and improves, learning how to work together, the corporate body is strengthened. For this reason, strong senior executives work purposefully at the development of their leadership teams, choosing and developing members with care and skill. This half-day workshop examines the role of the leadership team and leads participants to a deeper understanding of how great leadership teams are developed.

Workshop Overview:

  • The nervous system of the corporate body
  • Hallmarks of high performance teams
  • Building around character: deciding who goes and who stays
  • Valuing differences and complimentary leadership
  • Implementing a development plan
  • Four problems to avoid
  • The flow of authority
  • Monitoring leadership effectiveness

"Dan Gaynor's capacity to tailor his material to each specific audience is just one of the great reasons that made yesterday's workshop so rich and dynamic. Under the title "The Heart & Hands of Leadership", Dan skilfully shared with his audience of Team Leaders from the Alzheimer Society of Calgary his many years of experience as a successful leader and trainer. His sound, yet simple insight into the field of leadership will serve as a solid platform on which to build the future stages of our organization."
