Global Leadership: Leveraging Differences

Maximizing Your Leadership Potential


http://www.ccl.org/leadership/programs/MLPOverview.aspx?pageId=3203
Getting results isn't a solo gig.
If you're managing other people for the first time, you know that the shift from successful individual contributor to effective manager can be tricky. As a first-time manager or supervisor, your perspective expands, your responsibilities increase, and your ability to achieve goals requires a whole new level of people skills. To be an effective leader, you need a solid grip on your own leadership style, strengths and weaknesses — as well as an array of tactics for getting the best performance out of others. Maximizing Your Leadership Potential addresses your specific leadership challenges and prepares you to achieve results by leading others.
Maximizing Your Leadership Potential is for first-time managers — managers of individual contributors. They may have been recently promoted or are experiencing new pressures within a current management role.

Leadership Development Program


http://www.ccl.org/leadership/programs/LDPOverview.aspx?pageId=820
If you are a mid-to-senior level manager - a leader of managers - you lead in what CCL calls "the middle zone." You operate up and down the organizational hierarchy, as well as across functions and silos. To achieve results, you must effectively manage people and processes.

Managing from the middle zone is about connecting the strategy and the everyday work. It's a demanding role for you and an essential role for the organization.


The Leadership Development Program is designed to address the leadership tensions inherent in leading in the middle zone. LDP builds the skills and confidence you need to build commitment and translate strategy into effective action.
LDP is for experienced managers who work in the "middle zone" of the organization. These managers are responsible for leading other managers and/or senior professional staff. They are operational, group or department managers who have several management-level direct reports and work with multiple peers, often across functions.
Outcomes

By applying the lessons of LDP, managers will be better equipped to handle the tensions and ever-shifting dynamics of leading in the middle zone. They will:



  • Bridge the gap between senior management and the front line.

  • Collaborate across the organization.

  • Manage complexity.

  • Leverage the experience gained from multiple life roles.

  • Build resiliency for themselves and others.


Locations: Greensboro, NC, Colorado Springs, CO, San Diego, CA,
