Trust is crucial to working most productively as a team. Without trust, people are reluctant to share ideas, resources, or to collaborate with each other. But how do you build that trust? One way is to have open lines of communication to give people feedback and receive feedback yourself. That feedback can help you and your team develop new skills, communicate better, and achieve more together.

Learning to overcome your discomfort and being able to give and receive feedback effectively is a great way to build trust and grow your own and your team's skills.

For many, the very word “control” feels uncomfortable, carrying the relics of old-school leadership from ages past. Yet the attempts to control others remain even today, so we have to be focused on how we view the term.

The only person we can control 100% is ourselves, and the realization that it is down to us to manage ourselves first is quite a challenge to many. This kind and appreciative awareness can add to your capability to be your best for yourself, and to be the best you can be for your people too. Being kind to yourself is the first priority to be an outstanding leader and for you to feel great at the same time.

The road to leadership can be rocky—changing customer demands, generative AI disruption, and new workplace rules can cause careers to careen.

What are the new road rules to earning a seat in the C-Suite?

In this Leadercamp, CMO Executive Coach and Marketing Growth Leaders.com Founder, Lisa Nirell shows you the essential “on-ramp” to career confidence and growth. Derived from insights she’s gathered from over 1,800 CMOs and CEOs, Nirell will share the daily habits of top market leaders.

It doesn’t matter where you are in your career stage.

Today, business leaders understand the importance of People and Culture. All progressive organizations accept that People and Culture play a big role in organization success. At the core of creating a right culture is the leadership philosophy that the organization embraces. While there are many “People friendly" leadership philosophies out there, there is only one leadership philosophy that balances beautifully between results and relationship by truly being “People centered.” This philosophy is Servant Leadership.

There is a lot of literature on Servant Leadership. Most of the body of knowledge on Servant Leadership talks about what Servant Leadership is. Even when we understand the concept and might even like it, we are at a loss when it comes to actually implementing it at our workplace. This Leadercamp shifts the focus from the “what” of Servant Leadership to the “how.”

We live in a global world with diverse personalities and need to work together to get results. But when we all think and work differently, it can cause frustration. Recognizing our differences can reduce friction and increase interpersonal effectiveness.

It starts with you! Understanding how you prefer to communicate impacts how you lead, solve problems, make decisions, form relationships, collaborate, provide feedback, motivate and of course, influence. Learn the different communication styles and how to flex your style to increase collaboration, influence and strengthen relationships.

By developing your communication skills and becoming a Connected Leader, you will be able to expand your influence, build loyalty, and advance your role within your organization.

Leadership is a very broad topic, so how do you know how to be the most effective leader? There are several key areas that great leaders focus on to ensure they communicate the vision, motivate and manage their people, and get the job done right.

You cannot motivate someone. People choose whether or not they want to be motivated to do something. But you can certainly demotivate people. We’ll talk about what people need to be motivated so you can create a motivating environment for your staff. Also, we’ll talk about how motivation is situational and how you can develop a plan to work with employees on their motivation.

In this fifth and final Leadercamp in the Active Leadership series, PMP and Managing Partner at Lemmex Williams Training, Merri Lemmex will touch on the highlights of being a great leader.

Back in 2018, HRCI unveiled updates to the PHR® and SPHR® exams and since then, so much has changed in the way we manage people and work.

HRCI® created the HR Body of Knowledge™ (BoK™) as a comprehensive framework of benchmark HR practices to help HR professionals align the critical organizational and HR competences to meet the ever-changing demands of the HR profession. This is also the foundation for HRCI®’s certification exams which are developed through a systematic, practice analysis study and communicated through Exam Content Outlines (ECO).

The 2024 PHR® and SPHR® exams will incorporate many of the changes including: the acceleration in systems and software; ChatGPT and generative AI; increased emphasis on DEI; new laws on family and medical leave, pay equity and transparency, and pregnant workers’ rights; non-compete clauses, and much more.

How we decide to commit our time is 100% a choice. Yet the changes we need to make can prove challenging at first. How we use kindness to make the difference is where we spend our time as leaders most effectively.

In this second in a series of four Leadercamps, ICF-accredited coach and trainer Martin Haworth guides you on a journey to creating more time to lead. You’ll discover how to be Kinder to yourself, with plenty of time to be the leader even you would follow! And kinder to your people as you have space to support and develop them in a nurturing and enjoyable culture. You’ll learn some simple insights and tweaks to your current skills to give you all the time you need at work—and still get home in time for dinner!

We live in an era of information overload. Every day we have to decide what not to pay attention to ― and all too often that means ignoring new ideas, pitches, and proposals from companies like yours trying to grow, expand, and develop new business. 

How can we cut through the clutter and become the one idea or proposal that does get through? In a phrase, through unforgettable storytelling. Most business storytelling is weak and instantly forgettable. 

Join us in Dr. Nick Morgan’s Leadercamp on Unforgettable Storytelling where he will teach you how to tell stories that audiences and prospective clients can't forget. 

Leadership is about getting results with and through other people. In order to help your team members continue to stretch, grow and achieve, they need coaching, support and feedback. Coaching enhances your ability to guide and develop individual team members and cultivates a culture of continuous improvement. By understanding your team's unique strengths and development needs you can tailor your leadership approach to maximize their potential. Moreover, coaching fosters increased employee engagement and satisfaction, leading to higher retention, engagement, and morale.

This program focuses on listening and questioning in different ways to enable action oriented, collaborative conversations. A distinctive feedback model is taught that supports intentional listening in everyday coaching conversations so that you can engage your employees to get the best performance possible.

Whether you are a project manager managing projects, a team member on a project, or just wanting to know how projects are run, this Leadercamp will provide you with the highlights of planning and executing projects in a nutshell. Project Management has many different varieties – traditional waterfall, Agile, and hybrid process combining the two. This Leadercamp will explore all of these.

To ensure project success, great project managers set expectations and get agreement first. There are a number of things that must be put in place to ensure project success, and they form the project charter: a living document used throughout the project. Participants will learn about the basics of project management and requirements gathering to determine project scope, and stakeholder identification and analysis to enable understanding the players and managing their expectations. The resulting project charter will form an agreement between the project team and the sponsor/client to achieve project success.

In this first Leadercamp of a four-part series on Project Management, PMP and Managing Partner at Lemmex Williams Training, Merri Lemmex will highlight some aspects of successfully launching a project.

Many people are not good at being intentional about their communication with others. They come from a very "me-centered" approach (talking at people) rather than an "other-centered" approach (connecting with people). This leads to superficial relationships with less trust - which makes working with others harder than it needs to be. Learning to listen and to communicate to build relationships rather than just get your idea across is the key to creating trust on a team. 

Being intentional with your communication can help you to manage conflict, give and receive constructive feedback, give meaningful recognition for a job well done, and even delegate work more effectively.

Join us for Neelam Sharma’s upcoming Leadercamp on Intentional Communication where she will share her expertise and help participants develop better communication skills to build stronger relationships with their teams.

Following the first of our two Leadercamps on taking back control and gaining flexible leadership time, we’ll now focus on the way we maximize our relationships with others.

Effective connection with your own team, and influencing peers, bosses and stakeholders is the enabler to success. In the third in a series of four Leadercamps focusing on kind leadership, we use released time to connect effectively, develop productive relationships, be kind to ourselves, and be kind to our people too.

In this Leadercamp, ICF accredited coach and trainer Martin Haworth shares his thoughts and very practical ways to work more effectively—and efficiently—with those around you where everyone is a winner in a culture of kindness throughout.

Once a project has been agreed to, it is time to do detailed planning to determine time, cost, and scope. It begins by determine the work to be done (the work breakdown). A risk assessment is developed to be aware of what might derail a project, and a plan do deal with the issues. Estimates are then generated using various methods, and a schedule is created to determine overall time. While planning the project, key project plans are updated.

In this third Leadercamp of a four-part series on Project Management Fundamentals, PMP and Managing Partner at Lemmex Williams Training, Steve Lemmex will touch on the highlights of being a great leader.

What do people say about you when you leave the room?  Is it what you want them to say? How you show up in the room, get listened to and are known amongst your colleagues and employees are critical components of your leadership success. How we speak and how we listen not only directly impacts results but also employee engagement, productivity, morale and loyalty. 

The culminating program in this four-part series will bring together the elements of Connected Leadership.
