21st Century Leadership: Putting People First
21st Century Leadership means shifting the focus from labels―leaders and followers―to actions and relationships. It is about putting people first.
Walk into any airport newsstand, big-box or online bookseller, or conference bookstand―leadership books are everywhere. If simply reading a book on leadership made one a better leader, organizations would not be facing a severe drought in good leaders.
Every day, leaders make decisions and base action on a personal set of assumptions, unknown values, and “gut instinct.” Understanding the why and how of those assumptions—and how to handle them—can result in better if not great leadership.
Key Performance Consulting’s program, Leadership for the 21st Century: Putting People First, provides leaders with the opportunity to delve into why they lead the way we do and how best to leverage their natural styles. The program offers a stimulating and challenging learning environment that invites participants to learn how to exercise leadership with more courage, mindfulness, skill, and effectiveness.
A Unique Approach to Leadership
Leadership for the 21st Century: Putting People First is different from other leadership programs that focus on building a distinct set of competencies. Instead, leaders are given a chance to reflect on their deepest assumptions and most strongly held values and consider how those values and beliefs may have limited them in the past.
Over the six-week program, leaders are actively engaged on multiple levels—in the classroom, in small groups, and individual reflection and practice; for more information about this exciting program, download this informative flyer.
The program challenges leaders to look beyond formulating quick technical solutions when trying to solve organizational issues. Instead, it prompts them to examine themselves and the competing commitments and loyalties in their organization.
