Adaptive Leadership: Enhancing Individual and Team Performance

Date/Time: Thursday, Nov 9, 2017 - Friday, Nov 10, 2017 | 8:30 am - 5:00 pm

Location: The James B. Henry Center for Executive Development, Lansing Michigan

+ iCal + Google Calendar

Dates

November 9-10, 2017

Program Introduction

Research shows that there are seven critical roles that must be filled in all team contexts in order for the team to have long-term, sustained effectiveness. These roles include the:

  • Composer (selects the team members)
  • Designer (develops work procedures)
  • Motivator (energizes team members)
  • Decision-Maker (assesses the future and team’s direction)
  • Peacemaker (manages conflict among team members)
  • Teacher (helps the group learn from their experiences)
  • Developer (promotes interpersonal relationships among team members)

No one leader can fulfill all these roles but it is the leader’s responsibility to recognize his or her strengths and weaknesses in performing all the roles. Moreover, if there are roles that the leader cannot fulfill, it is his or her responsibility to either (a) personally adapt and develop the ability to perform the role or (b) make sure that the role is covered by some other member of the team.

The skills learned in this seminar will help the attendee expand his or her leadership style beyond his or her current niche, providing long-term career survival and advancement.

Key Learning Outcomes

After attending this program, participants will have learned how to:

  • Choose the right people
  • Re-engineer team tasks
  • Motivate different types of people
  • Make effective group decisions
  • Manage conflict
  • Promote team learning
  • Weather and exploit change
  • Create a trusting group climate
