This workshop introduces GISC‚Äôs model of influential leadership and presents the interpersonal skills that build highly effective groups and organizations. The focus will be on developing self-awareness and personal impact, understanding the cycle of change and how to productively handle resistance to change, and practicing techniques of managing teams.
Using a variety of feedback tools, participants will experience a rare opportunity to understand their impact and build awareness of their competencies. Practical opportunities will be provided to explore how to increase influence and accomplish objectives. Through small group leadership exercises and case work, participants will practice how to support effective group behavior, effectively manage differences, and work with the dynamics of change and resistance.
The program will present research and theory of this leadership model but will emphasize practice, reflection, and feedback. Through a combination of presentations, individual and small group exercises, and discussion, participants will gain a new understanding of what characterizes effective leadership ‚Äì both for themselves and for others.
