LEVERAGING OPTIMISM TO MAKE CHANGE WORK

 
In the good and the tough times, the best leaders leverage optimism to make strategic changes for themselves and their teams. Optimists are realists who are the first to admit there are problems and the first to do something about them. As a leader, you'll learn how to reframe challenges as opportunities and to turn downturns into strategic progress. You'll learn how to turn your anxiety and worries into attitudes and actions that produce results. Today's leaders don't just initiate change; they keep inventing the future over and over again. Learn how to value the past while embracing the future, drive a vision but remain open to strategic innovation, be tight where you can and loose where you need to invest, and major in both accountability and support. While affirming core values and organizational strategy, learn how to sustain team morale and productivity through constant change and how to manage accountability by finding the winning balance between caring enough to confront and rewarding performance. Explore how to support innovation and early problem solving while generating enthusiasm for change. Unleash the power of cultural stories and best practices. Don't miss this engaging and practical program that stresses specific strategies you can use to leverage optimism in support of strategic change.
