NWIRC is pleased to partner with Penn-Northwest Development Corporation to present The Leadership Challenge!

In the world of business, ‘profitability’ is king. But the most significant contribution a good leader makes isn’t really focused on the bottom line.  It’s focused on people—on relationships—on developing employees. Especially during the current critical shortage of workers, if your company wants to become an “employer of choice” you need both strong leadership and a culture that encourages teamwork. Good leaders are effective because they know what it takes to cultivate that culture. They understand employees will work hard if given the right tools, guidance and reason. They also understand you earn the respect of those around you by making a significant difference in their lives.

Whether you want to take your personal leadership skills or your company to the next level, change the culture, or simply are curious about the best practices of good leaders, strong leadership can be learned. Start TODAY to positively affect your business and your organization’s culture TOMORROW beginning with this workshop.  Based on the research of Kouzes and Posner’s best seller The Leadership Challenge and leadership guru John Maxwell’s newest book Leader Shift you will discover 5 ways YOU can rejuvenate and
re-energize your organization’s culture.

*Leadership is the Ability to Influence: Model the Way

*Inspire a Shared Vision to Do More and Be More

*Challenge the Process to Grow the Team

*Build a Ladder that will Enable others to Act

*Grow Transformational Leaders through Engagement

When you leave this session, you will know what it takes to become a great leader to influence and inspire those around you. You will learn why it’s critically important. You will discover some of the best ways how you personally can start to take your skills and your organization to the next level. And lastly, the Leadership Challenge will help you develop a plan to move forward. Understand it’s never too late to begin—when? NOW.

Who should attend: CEO, COO, Executive and Mid-level managers, Front-line Supervisors.
