Today's business climate is characterized by intense competition coupled with flattened hierarchies, multi-dimensional teams, and a diverse working environment. This reality requires a repertoire of leadership practices and skills for anyone responsible for getting results with and through others. Recent studies confirm the leader is the prime factor for creating a productive work environment and contributing to higher employee retention. The Active Leadership Model provides the concepts, context, and perspective for active leaders. This course will cover the key aspect of KUBA, the tasks, and the ability and motivation for performance. You’ll then learn about the difference leadership styles used according to individual abilities and motivation. You’ll learn to recognize time and the importance of progression as well as how to adapt the detail and frequency of task-related information with the ability and motivation of the employee. Finally, you’ll reflect on the compelling reasons for becoming a better leader. This course was originally created by Global Knowledge (GK).
