As we assume new responsibilities that come with our new leadership roles, one of the most magical discoveries is when we can learn how to effectively empower and build up our direct reports. This requires an openness to new ideas, a desire to support the professional growth of our peers, and effective communication skills. Whether working with your highest performers or the ones with the most room for growth, smart leaders are constantly contemplating how to motivate and influence their teams to succeed. So often we rely on external rewards “like motivating a horse to run with the carrot on a stick” yet these can only work for so long. The people and projects we lead require different motivation styles, especially as we begin to empower others to take on new challenges and responsibilities. In this session, we'll explore the building blocks of successful communication to enhance individual and team efficacy.
