Workshop Modules What will be Covered


Introduction and Course Overview

You will spend the first part of the day getting to know participants and discussing what

will take place during the workshop. Students will also have an opportunity to identify their personal learning objectives.


The Learning Organization

The idea that organizations and people should strive to continually evolve and learn has

been coming into prominence over the last decade. During this session, we will explore what this means and how we can get started.


The Five Disciplines

The morning of Day One will be spent discussing Peter Senge’s five disciplines: personal

mastery, mental models, shared vision, team learning, and systems thinking.



One key tool for developing your leadership skills is the Situational Leadership Model

developed by Paul Hersey. Participants will spend most of the afternoon of Day One taking this test and analyzing its results.


The Five Practices

James Kouzes and Barry Posner are two other well-known researchers who have done a

tremendous amount of work on leadership, and their findings complement Peter Senge’s work. They have identified five practices they feel should be a part of every leader’s skill set. We will look at each practice closely and help you identify some ways to incorporate it into your leadership skill set.



Trust may very well be one of the most important determiners of employer-employee

relationships. We will explore some ways that participants can build trust with their employees.



Managing change well is a key part of being a manager. We will take a close look at

William Bridges’ change cycle. Participants will also have an opportunity to apply the cycle to situations from their own lives.


The Change Cycle

During this session, we will explore the three phases of William Bridges’ change cycle through lecture and small group work.


The Human Reaction to Change

This session will look at Daryl Conner’s interpretation of the human response to change through lecture and small group work.


The Pace of Change

We will look at how different people react to change in different ways and at different times through a lecture and a case study.


The Pyramid Response to Change

We will examine how employees, middle management, and upper management are affected by change.


A Four Room Apartment

This session will look at change using Claes Janssen’s four room apartment model.


Dealing with Resistance

During this session, we will examine the three keys to successful change.


Adapting to Change

This session will discuss how to become resilient to change through a lecture, personal case studies, and small group discussion.


Strategies for Dealing with Change

Now that we have looked at change using a number of models, we will look at five strategies that can help you deal with change.


 Types of Thinking

There are several models that you can apply to your thinking to help you achieve

maximum results. We will discuss two models and apply them to an ethical dilemma.


Influence Strategies

At the very core of leadership is the ability to influence people. There are many ways that

we can influence people. This session will focus on the six methods that Robert Cialdini has identified.



Early on in the workshop, we looked at the concept of systems thinking. This session

takes that concept and applies it to relationships. We will look at the relationship system and how participants can use it to better coach a team through conflict.


Problem Solving

There are many approaches that you can use to solve a problem. We will discuss a simple

eight-step method and then participants will apply that method to a personal problem.


Strategic Planning

By the end of this session, participants will understand the benefits of a SWOT analysis.

They will also have an opportunity to complete a personal analysis.



One of a manager’s biggest challenges is what to delegate, to whom, and how. We will

take an in-depth look at some key delegation techniques, and then participants will practice those techniques in a role play.


Criteria for Useful Feedback

This session will look at the nine criteria for useful feedback. We will also see the value

of good feedback through a group exercise.


Feedback Techniques

In this session, we will continue our work with feedback by looking at some feedback

techniques. Participants will then practice those techniques through a role-play.


Body Language

Just as important as what you say is how you say it. During this session participants will

learn how to make sure that their body is sending the same message as their words.



Leaders are often asked to hold, attend, and/or facilitate meetings. We will look at each of

these roles in-depth and identify some ways that leaders can make the most of their time in each role.


Skillful Speaking

Public speaking is an opportunity leaders must learn to grasp at every opportunity.

During this session, participants will learn seven ways to pump up a presentation.


Personal Development

To wrap up the workshop, we will review the pre-assignment and fill out an action plan.


Workshop Wrap-Up

At the end of the day, participants will have an opportunity to ask questions.
