Successful leaders want the people they support and depend on to succeed—a goal that requires an environment of trust and mutual understanding. Your ability to communicate your Leadership Point-of-View (LPOV) is key to fostering trust among your colleagues. The LPOV is your personal “elevator pitch"—it describes your journey, values, goals, and expectations. Learn how to craft your LPOV and be inspired to share it with those you lead.

Learning Objectives: 1. Discuss how the ability to communicate one’s Leadership Point-of-View fosters an environment of trust. 2. Outline the process by which a leader can create a meaningful and engaging LPOV elevator speech. 3. Describe the potential positive effects of sharing one’s LPOV with others.

Program Level: Basic
Field of Study: Personal Development
Program Prerequisites: None
Advance Preparation: None

Is your workplace changing at a dizzying clip? New procedures, technology, and initiatives are exciting in principle, but are can be disruptive. Most change efforts require significant adjustments in how your team members get work done, and you need their buy-in and commitment. Roughly 70% of change efforts fail or get derailed for predictable reasons. Learn how to use this predictability to minimize the risks associated with change. 

Learning Objectives: 1. Describe how to identify and address employee concerns/questions during change. 2. Outline strategies for increasing buy-in and decreasing resistance by actively involving those impacted by the change in the change process (doing it with them not to them.) 3. Discuss how to use appropriate change leadership strategies to resolve concerns.
