Leading for Performance
When leaders perform, people perform—and when people perform, businesses succeed. Research indicates the greatest impact on employees' job performance and fulfillment is the quality of their working relationships and interactions with immediate managers. New leaders are often ill-prepared for their role, and incumbent managers may be out of touch with employees and their needs. Poor leadership leads to ineffective management, low employee loyalty and retention, and, ultimately, poor organizational performance. Therefore, one of the keys to improving overall organizational performance is to ensure front-line and mid-level leaders have the leadership skills critical to building an engaged, high-performing workforce.
Leading for Performance is comprised of the following modules:
- Coaching for Performance
- Coaching for Sales Performance
- Communicating with Purpose
- Delegating with Confidence
- Interviewing for Selection
- Managing Conflict
- Managing Styles in Conflict
- Managing Time Wisely
- Meeting Leadership Challenges
- Motivating for Results
- Reviewing Performance
- Setting Goals for Success
- Working Styles
Leading for Performance (LFP) is a series of leadership effectiveness modules that provides first-line and mid-level managers, team leaders, and project managers with the skills and tools they need to create effective working relationships with others. Participants learn proven best practices for communication, team building, conflict resolution, coaching, goal setting, conflict management, problem-solving, and other vital leadership competencies that can drive performance and lead to a sustainable advantage for their organizations.
Leading for Performance (LFP) is comprised of a number of practical, configurable instructor-led modules. The modules vary in length from one-half day to one day and can be delivered as discrete modules or as an integrated offering over time. This means participants need not be away from their jobs for extended periods.
LFP modules can be taught by a Wilson Learning facilitator or by an organization's own leader-trained in-house professional. This enables:
- Face-to-face interaction among participants and with the facilitator
- True-to-life skills practice with immediate in-person feedback
- The opportunity for real-time commitment to action
Enabling Improved Performance
Leading for Performance (LFP) features application, reinforcement, and support tools. Job aid cards and planners allow participants to fine-tune and apply knowledge, skills, and behaviors back on the job. Involving executive management and/or developing peer support groups early on, and training them to coach for improved performance, is important to the successful implementation of LFP modules.
Organizations that implement Leading for Performance have access to measurement and impact evaluation tools. Participants are encouraged to share planners with their managers to track skill application and performance improvement.
