EMPOWER Your Personal Leadership Program

  1. 1. EMPOWER YOUR PERSONAL LEADERSHIP 1 In Ken Blanchard’s book “Leading At A Higher Level,” he wrote “If empowerment is to be successful, organizations and leaders must develop self-leaders in the workforce who have the skills to take initiative. An organization filled with self- leaders is an organization with an empowered workforce.” Ken then reiterated the need to train people on self-leadership, which is about developing individuals to pick up the ball and run with it. He said that individual learning is a key element of high- performing organization and is essential to self-leadership (or as we call it here, personal leadership). People in high-performing organizations are regarded as “appreciating assets” who grow more valuable with knowledge and experience. They are developed by these organizations through formal training, mentoring and on-the-job support. Ken Blanchard then defined the three critical skills of a self-leader as follows: 2 Challenging assumed constraints. An “assumed constraint” is a belief based on past experience that limits current and future experiences. Self-leadership teaches the person to let go of the assumed constraints. Celebrating your points of power. According to Ken, there are five sources of power: position, personal, task, relationship and knowledge. The key is to know your points of power, and then expand them. Collaborating for success. This is the time when self-leaders take the initiative to get the directions and support they need to successfully achieve their goals. It is important to maximize the “power in you” because you cannot lead a team or an organization unless you are able to develop and lead yourself first. To develop your strong leadership is to empower you – to enable you to develop or grow the people under your care, who will then help you achieve set goals. Source: power-in-you/
  2. 2. 2 1 Why You Should Attend To be successful, you must not only be a manager, you must also be a leader. You have to demonstrate characteristics of both. For instance, managers are focused on operational excellence, while leaders are strategic. Managers manage the change, while leaders define & drive the change. Managers are focused on “doing things right” while leaders are focused on “doing the right things.” To effectively manage and lead others, you must be able to 2 manage and lead yourself first of all. This one-day program will help you answer questions like: What are the top qualities of a leader that will propel you to succeed? Why are these leadership qualities important? How can you improve to achieve the top leadership qualities critical to your situation? How can you inspire, influence, energize and lead others? How important is emotional intelligence in leading and how can you become more emotionally intelligent? “Most  of  all,  what  makes  the  course  really  effective  is  that  I  see  my  mentor   as  a  role  model.  Knowing  her  journey  and  relating  to  her  experiences   inspires  me.  I  have  not  only  gained  new  skill  and  knowledge  from  the  course.   Most  of  all,  I  found  a  mentor  and  sister  friend  in  Elaine.”   -­‐  BERNADETH  LUCANAS,  former  VP,  Credit  Suisse  (Singapore)   “I  learned  to  identify  what  I  need  to  improve  on  and  which  should  I  focus  on   more...I  have  a  better  understanding  of  myself  and  others.  I  learned  how  to  build   relationships  with  people  that  would  help  me  meet  my  objectives.”   -­‐  AILEEN  V,  a  senior  conference  producer
