Inspire a Collective Vision
Create a Sense of Inclusivity in Your Organization
Bring the image of someone who is inclusive in the way they approach others into your mind – a “We” leader. Can you picture someone whom you know, or have worked with at some point in your life? How do you feel when you are around them? Now picture someone who is always looking out for #1 – a “Me” leader. How do you feel around this person? Here’s the secret every inclusive leader knows: when you first take the time to understand what others want – and the unmet needs that underlie their wants – you are much more likely to get what you want. Why? You are now able to express what you want in their language, in terms that speak to their values.
You make the landmark shift from “Me-versus-Them” to “We” thinking – a new mental approach that removes the boundaries you have falsely constructed that keep you separate from others and ultimately disable your best laid plans. In this cutting-edge workshop, we explore the key characteristics of a “We” leader – including how they think out-of-the-box to create what CSL President Anthony Silard calls “Win/Win/Win” solutions. We also review five key strategies that you can integrate into your personal leadership style to inspire a collective vision with your team that will engender their enduring loyalty and commitment. (This leadership workshop includes an advance chapter of “Inspire a Collective Vision” from Anthony Silard’s upcoming book, Born or Made.)
