Workshop Name: “Potential Business Leadership Workshop”
Becoming a Management Material
Executive Summary and Scope:
This course is for people who want to become an effective leader. Leadership is different from managing. You lead people, but you manage things.
Leadership is about Inspiration, motivation and vision. Managing is about optimisation of resources, scheduling, project management and so on. You may lead and manage at the same time, however, this course focuses on your leadership role.
As a leader in the 21st century, you need to be prepared for dynamic, complex and competitive environments with a flexible approach. With a mission and a strategy you can look forward with confidence and certainty that will be picked up by your team.

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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
To wrap up the workshop, we will review the pre-assignment and fill out an action plan.
At the end of the day, participants will have an opportunity to ask questions.
