Setting a Vision

Paul Smith

Part of management’s job is setting a vision for the organization. But unfortunately, while most leaders and managers have some idea for what they want the future to look like, they have very little idea how to communicate that vision. That’s what this course will help you do. You’ll learn how to get your audience to pay attention to your vision, understand it, believe it, and act on it. You’ll even learn what to do if you don’t agree with the vision you’ve been asked to deploy. It’s another course in bestselling author Paul Smith’s Fireside Chat series where you get to learn from the hard-won wisdom of experienced professionals drawn from interviews Paul conducted with hundreds of CEOs and executives at dozens of companies around the world.

Why followers don't trust leaders?

Andy Edwards

LEADERS. Your followers don’t trust you… here are the six reasons why.

According to the respected website, hrnews.co.uk, 95% of leaders believe they are trusted by their followers… however, it seems only 16% of them truly are!

What are leaders doing so wrong?

For a start, they obviously do not realize there’s a problem (the ‘trust perception’ gap described above borders on the delusional)! And it’s very easy to blame followers who are sullen, stubborn, unproductive, and disloyal.

However, this course helps leaders understand how much THEIR behavior contributes to the negativity in their followers… and then helps them turn things around.

Many problems between leaders and followers are SYMPTOMS. Solve the underlying problems and the symptoms disappear. This course addresses those underlying issues.

Using six areas of leadership – each of which begins with the letter ‘C’, behavioral psychologist Andy Edwards identifies EXACTLY what a leader needs to do to create trusting, loyal, hardworking, and productive followers…

Followers who choose to follow YOU as their leader!
