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. 

Content of the program includes: How to lead people with your head and heart; myths of managing managers; how to manage people who are smarter than you; ethical and values driven leadership skills; how to boost the engagement levels of the people who work for you; how to take greater advantages of what people already do well; understanding the behaviour of 21st century employees; how to manage difficult people; coaching as powerful tool to manage people for extraordinary results; how to develop empathy within you to manage people better; factors affecting to demotivate people; how to give effective feedback.
