JASTECA Institute of Management announces a day’s training titled ‘Leading your Leaders’. 

“Whether you were born a leader or have had leadership thrust upon you, you’re in for a whole new set of challenges when managing other leaders. Think of the qualities that have brought you to a leadership role: Your vision, confidence, and charisma, or perhaps your experience, unique skills, expertise, or network of powerful allies. Now remind yourself that other leaders share some or all of these qualities with you. The leaders you are called upon to lead may be other executives, highly educated experts, or other professionals. The potential contributions of these elites to any organisation are vital, but the likelihood of friction is also high if you don’t manage relationships carefully.”

In any case, they are people with significant resources and strong opinions. How do you leverage the assets of the talented and powerful while making sure that egos remain unbruised? Leading Leaders Program helps our elite leaders to build high performing work culture based on ethical values with effective rules in successfully leading other leaders.
