Refresh Your Leadership Skills

Are you an alumni of the Community Leadership of Licking County program?  If so, you may be interested in some new training that is now available to you.

The Chamber, in partnership with Jill Campen from Campen Group Inc., is offering alumni of the Community Leadership Program an opportunity to brush up on their leadership skills. The following summarizes the four different classes that are being offered:

 Situational Leadership II (SLII) Concepts  -Sept 11, 2015 - 4 hours (8:00 - 12:00) Situational Leadership II (SLII) is a proven leadership model that was designed by Ken Blanchard in the 1960’s.  Thousands of leaders throughout the world continue to use the SLII model as a guide for effective leadership.  SLII provides a model for building leadership and shared processes to effectively lead individuals and teams. This is not a “one size fits all” approach.  This is a leadership process that provides leaders with the tools to be flexible with a diverse group of colleagues, in various situations.  Leadership is something you do “with” people…not “to” them.  Each leader will complete a Leadership Behavioral Assessment (LBA) to determine their current effectiveness and flexibility as a leader.  The course allows for practice in the skills presented, and provides tools and templates for one-on-one conversations.
Communication Styles and Leadership Effectiveness – Oct. 30, 2015 4 hours (8:00 - 12:00 It is important for leaders to understand how their natural communication style can be most effective with the individuals and teams they lead.  The Social Styles Communication assessment is a time tested communication style tool that provides insight, in a detailed report, about the leader’s preferred communication style.  We take the results of this assessment and connect them with the SLII model to understand how human behavior and personal chemistry enhance work relationships. 
Giving Feedback  - Jan. 8, 2016 -4 hours (8:00 - 12:00) Feedback is the breakfast of champions…and many of us aren’t used to giving or receiving feedback that results in improved behavior and relationships.  Feedback takes practice.  If we don’t use proper techniques and exercise those muscles regularly, we will injure our business and personal productivity and relationships.
Handling Conflict – Mar. 4, 2016 -4 hours (8:00 - 12:00) Conflict is a normal and natural part of any relationship.  Conflict resolution is both a skill and an art.  This session will focus on the important steps toward conflict resolution.  There will be time to discuss typical workplace conflicts, and practice navigating these challenges in a small group setting.


If you are an alumni of the Community Leadership Program and are interested in being a part of this excellent leadership training, please contact me at 740-345-9757 x5 or chottinger@lickingcountychamber.com.
