Enhancing Your Influence Skills
Exceptional leaders use their knowledge, skills, experience, and reputation to influence people and workplace initiatives. Influence is the capacity to engage, connect, and inspire others to change their behaviour in the desired way. Influential leaders, however, inspire, convince, and encourage in addition to command. Leaders draw out the expertise and abilities of a group, guide people toward a common objective and consensus, and inspire a commitment to get things done. You will be able to apply strategies to enhance employee engagement, operational effectiveness, safety performance, and resource allocation. When applying influencing abilities and preparing a strategy, leaders must be aware of why they are acting in a certain way and be clear about their beliefs, goals, and perspective. In this approach, influencing others has the most significance and comes from a place of authenticity.
Effective Change Leadership
Managing change is a constant, critical element of effective leadership. Change leadership has not been more predominant than it has been over the past few years with mergers, reduced investments and budgets, and a global pandemic. Organizational leaders must be skilled at assuming new roles, creating new identities, and discovering new meaning for both themselves and those they lead if they are to sustain and grow their organization. Through personal advocacy, vision, passion, and the ability to acquire resources to create a solid foundation for change, change leadership is the capacity to motivate and inspire others. Discover your leading role in managing change and explore practical strategies for guiding people and organizations through change. With the skills gained in this course, you will be able to engage in organizational change initiatives by applying practical strategies.
