How to Prepare Millennials for Leadership

millennials-1024x683-1024x675

Generation Y (Gen Y)-the generation of those born roughly between early 1980’s and mid 1990’s-is set to be the largest segment of the American workforce this year, 2020. This is not the only reason for which it is being so highly talked about in the work circles in the US. There are others:

  • It is the first generation to be born with access to technology almost from their birth, or at least their schooling days
  • This generation doesn’t need to be trained formally about technology since they already have had enough exposure to it

With their familiarity with technology being a given, the managements in organizations that hire them need to understand the unique qualities of this generation to be able to realize their full potential.

The many ways by which managements in the present-day organizations can bring the best out of the Millennials will be the topic of a very valuable webinar that is being organized by TrainHR, a leading provider of professional training for all the areas of human resources, on February 27.

TrainHR brings the Founder of Simply HR, LLC, Tonia Morris, as the expert of this session. To register for this very important learning, please visit TrainHR .

The focus of this webinar is in helping its participants understand the implications and consequences of the shifting nature of the American workforce. Although five generations are at work right now, it is estimated that by the end of 2020, the Millennials will make up half of it.

Managements have to thus prepare and brace themselves with the right strategies to be able to exploit the many capabilities this generation brings. Managements need to have a sound understanding of this generation’s aspirations and expectations.

During this webinar, in showing how to do this, Tonia will cover the following areas:

  • Mentorship
  • Think Laterally not Vertically
  • Meaningful Leadership Role
  • Feedback on Demand

Strategies for Effective Leadership

liz7q0-liz7kbdresscodelrg

If one were asked to name one quality that could be the difference between mediocre and great organizations, it has to be the quality of leadership that drives them. What is good leadership? It is one that brings about influence and power. Both these qualities, however, come with a major rider: they both need to be harnessed and handled rightly, failing which, they end up making leadership useless and vain.

David Rohlander, author of the bestselling book, CEO Code, as the expert at a webinar that TrainHR, a leading provider of professional training for the areas of human resources is organizing on November 21, will show how to cultivate leadership that brings about positive influence and power. Knowing how to get the positive aspect of these two qualities is more important than anything else in leadership, and David will show how.

To enroll for this highly rewarding learning 90-minute experience about positive leadership, please visit TrainHR.

———————————————————————————————————–

The reason for the current social and political crisis in the US today can be directly traced to the lack of effective leadership in all the sectors that matter: the government, business, and family. David will draw a close relationship between the leadership in these sectors, all of which needs to be upright. Leadership that can be used in one of these areas is applicable to all others.

Chess board

Leadership and power are two qualities that can be beneficial beyond imagination when exercised right, and equally dangerous and futile when done wrong. Depending on the leader’s qualities, both of these can be used for either good or evil. It is imperative to understand the nature and limits of one’s own power, and with it, that of others, if they have to be nurtured and utilized rightly.

At this webinar, David will impart leadership tactics and strategies that can be used in the business environment. Although he will make a mention of certain principles and concepts, he will show how to implement them. He will show the exact ways by which to behave as a leader and exert power in order to be effective. At the end of the session, the participants will have gained knowledge of how to implement a leadership strategy that brings maximum dividends.

These are some of the benefits that the participants of this webinar will gain:

  • Profound insight into people and behaviors
  • Specific tools and methods to plan better
  • Systems to set goals, communicate and delegate
  • More free time to focus on the big picture
  • Improved morale for you and your team
  • Reduction of stress

They will gain the clarity, definition and practical methods needed to become and achieve the mission of being a quality leader.

CEO, CFO, COO, Vice Presidents, Managers and those being groomed for promotion will gain tremendously from this session, at which the following areas will be covered:

  • What is leadership? What is management?
  • Discover the different types of leaders and which type is best
  • How to use power in the workplace
  • Learn the practical aspects of establishing goal clarity
  • Building balanced high achieving teams
  • Develop the practice of mastering your personal organization skills
  • How to balance the four primary functions of all leaders
  • You will explore the art and science of effective communication
  • Results are the ultimate goal, how do you measure and achieve the right things.

Get the Edge: Become a Discretionary Effort Leader

Business-Meeting-2

There is something called discretionary effort that employees should bring at work. What this means is that, as somewhat opposed to smart work, which is essentially about being intuitive and tactful at doing an assigned task rather than toiling at it; it is mainly about an employee making up her mind about how much she is going to contribute to the work on a given day.

Why is this kind of outlook important? It helps to clear the clutter around tasks. It helps the employee to channelize her energies and creativity towards a chosen task, which will help her give her best to it, instead of dissipating energies into a whole host of diverse and often unneeded tasks. When the latter tactic is employed, the result is that the strengths are wasted on doing what is not going to produce results, and instead, spent on what is less productive.

Karla Brandau, CEO of Workplace Power Institute, will be the expert at a webinar that is being organized by TrainHR, a leading provider of professional training for all the areas of human resources, on October 22, at which this concept will be explained in detail.

Please log on to TrainHR to enroll for this valuable session.

Discretionary effort is set to be a leading principle of the 21st century workforce. When exercised in the leadership position, it will help propel organizations into leading positions and will be the distinguishing factor between mediocre and excellent organizations.

Over the sixty minutes of this presentation, Karla will explain how employees can put in minimal effort at their chosen work and become a lot more productive naturally and smartly instead of having to grind it out. The result of following the principles of discretionary effort is that with less effort, employees can contribute more to the organization, increase profit and present themselves and the organization better with their customers.

This webinar is based on the book, “How to Earn the Gift of Discretionary Effort”. Its principles, which are based on the Ross Brandau Discretionary Leadership Model TM, will help the participants to:

  1. Create a workplace where individuals feel safe, not only physically but safe to surface the truth
  2. Build a workplace where employees want to come to work and are challenged and supported in their professional growth
  3. Assess and understand the strengths and limitations of individual personalities enabling them to better communicate on a personal basis
  4. Refine the process of rational alignment of all teams and employees when providing vision and direction.

About the speaker: Karla is a thought leader in management and team building techniques. A specialist in personalities, communication skills, and leadership principles, she has authored the book, How to Earn the Gift of Discretionary Effort, which aims to teach managers how to be the leader people CHOOSE to follow, not have to follow because of their position on the organizational chart.

Moving From an Operational Manager to a Strategic Leader

leadership-style

There is no debate on the importance a manager has for an organization. Being the personnel that run the organization; it is managers who carry out the vital organizational work, during the course of which, they have to take crucial decisions. Their work, needless to say, has a very strong impact on the organization.

Yet, for all the importance managers carry with organizations, they are not as critical to organizations as leaders. If the manager carries out work that the organization needs to sustain itself at the operational level, the latter visualizes and strategizes the organization’s very future, and takes it there. While the manager is important, the leader is stellar.

Having said this, these roles need not be seen or set in silos. A manager can become an effective leader, too. Proper orientation and training helps them to transition from being operational managers who manage and run the daily aspects of the business, to effective leaders, a role in which they develop a vision for the organization and take it to the target it is destined to.

The starting point of this change is for managers to move out of their operational mind-set to cultivating the leadership outlook. This role equips them with the power needed for anticipating, initiating and managing change needed to ensure that the organization grows to a point where it reaches high levels of competitiveness. Redefining and refocusing their thinking from time to time and sharing their ideal with the team, motivating it and taking the team members along the growth path are required for this.

A webinar from TrainHR, a leading provider of professional training for the areas of human resource, will offer this valuable learning.

7 Behaviors of Great Leaders

leader_647

Leadership, a trait that moves the world in all the disciplines it covers, is a noble one. A leader starts by mastering his own self first before setting out to lead and influence others into the right zone or direction. Nothing beats setting a personal example of leadership when it comes to persuasion. This is the strongest means of conviction that a leader can build into her followers.

One doesn’t have to do anything out of the world to lead. All that one needs is a set of simple, down-to-earth steps that, when once developed, can become a habit. A habit, as we know, is something that is not easy to give up. So, leadership is not, to use the cliched expression, rocket science. It is all about inculcating a set of habits.

So, which are these habits? Does it require a genius to cultivate and implement them? Never. The irony of such an indispensable quality as leadership is that it is a behavior can be learnt, that too, step by step.

These seven behaviors of leadership will the learning a webinar from TrainHR, a leading provider of professional training for all the areas of human resources, will be teaching.

It is enough if one alters habits and thinking just a bit to see the wider picture and set goals towards getting there. The key is to introspect and identify which habits to acquire and which ones to change. The expert at this webinar will get down to explaining what these are and how to form winning habits.

The roadmap that David will help participants of this webinar build will be a combination of concrete technics and philosophical justification. Understandably, this session is of great value to personnel such as CEO, CFO, COO; Vice Presidents and Regional Managers, managers and supervisors, newly promoted managers, and high potential employees being groomed for leadership and promotions.

He will cover the following areas at this webinar:

  • What does a great leader look like and act like?
  • How do you live with integrity as a leader?
  • The magic of self-control, growth and caring What about attitude?
  • The primary activities of a great leader
  • How does a great leader treat others?
