In the past, old-school leaders worked from a top-down hierarchy model: using a carrot/stick mentality to try and manage behavior. These tactics sometimes produce short-term improvements, but fail in making real, lasting, changes in team performance.
This course is designed to help you discover a more effective way of leading your team by starting with yourself. Leadership is an inside-out exercise, and this course will give you tools to better understand your own leadership strengths, how to motivate others, and how to listen and communicate better with your team.
