Program Content

We will explore concepts that have shaped our leadership ideas. Connecting where we come from with what we do can be a powerful motivator and can help ground who we are as leaders in values and purpose. Questions we will ask are: what is the difference between management and leadership? What makes a good leader? Can I learn to be a good leader?
Together we will lean into strengths-based leadership as the more effective and motivating approach for ourselves and our team. We will discuss why strengths-based leadership is a crucial aspect to positive leadership. In addition, we will explore some of the values that guide our work. We will answer questions such as how to use our strengths to our advantages?
Are you part of a remote team like us? Together we will explore how to create trust and motivation in teams. We will discuss what four aspects affect trust and how you can work on each of them. What are strategies we can work on through the SCARF model (Dan Pink) to increase motivation and decrease fear in teams?
Executing better and more effective communication within ourselves and our teams while we reflect on the issues that have risen in your team before. This is much easier said than done though. Having difficult conversations is a crucial skill to have as a positive leader. How can we give feedback in an empathetic and effective way? How can we approach difficult conversations with confidence?
As leaders, we will need to learn how to delegate. We will discuss how and who to delegate to in order to work to our and our team’s full potential. And finally, we finish the course by drafting a guiding document that serves as the Northern Light for our leadership journey. We will cover questions such as: What is our leadership philosophy? What are the guiding principles of who we are as a leader?
