How to Motivate Others to Take Action and Achieve Your Vision

Creating a vision or ambitious goals is a promising initiative, but it will remain unrealized unless others are inspired to act toward attaining it. Inspiring people is an essential leadership skill that is both fulfilling and effective, once you understand the mechanisms required to rally people into action. In this interactive and dynamic session, individuals learn the fundamentals of delivering engaging messages that command attention and prompt action. By familiarizing themselves with the seven pillars of the I.N.S.P.I.R.E. framework, attendees will unlock their leadership potential and discover how to inspire and guide future generations of managers and employees.

How to Listen to Understand and Enhance Your Leadership Abilities

Effective listening is a crucial leadership skill that can aid in building trust, setting direction, encouraging contribution, and fostering ownership. Despite its importance, listening is often undervalued and rarely taught. Listening to understand, a form of active listening, requires effort; and when executed adeptly, can mitigate conflict, identify solutions, and establish trust. Unfortunately, many individuals develop poor listening habits over time, such as listening to win or listening to fix, and are unable to grasp how to listen to understand. Drawing upon his 30 years of hands-on leadership experience, Alden formulated the L.I.S.T.E.N. acronym, which explains the six fundamental actions of high-performance listening using interactive role-playing exercises.
