The 'Leader Others Want to Work For' has switched their script from:

 » It's about 'me' - to it's about 'them'
 » A 'me' mentality - to a 'we' & 'us' mentality
 » Being the centre of attention - to shining the spotlight on others
 » Individual success - to making their team successful
 » Personal advancement - to helping each team member reach their potential

Employee-centric leaders are constantly:

 » Communicating - through their words, behaviours & priorities
 » Influencing - through logic, explanation & connection
 » Building relationships with their team through:
 » Direction – clarity around the vision
 » Alignment – clarity on the 'line of sight'
 » Commitment – everyone wants what's best for the team

Successful leaders recognize that they:

 » Need their team more than their team needs them
 » Get paid more for what their team does than what they do
 » Should do everything in their power to help their team be as successful as possible
 » Succeed when their team succeeds!

The 'Leader Others Want to Work For' meets their employees' engagement needs causing them to:

 » Expend discretionary effort & do more than they are asked to do
 » Be motivated toward the organization's success

Why Should You Attend

The individual contributor’s script is to:

 » Keep your head down
 » Work harder than everyone else
 » Push to get things done
 » Utilize your technical skills
 » Be a subject matter expert
 » Rely on yourself in order to be successful

Many people are promoted to a leadership position because they:

 » Were highly competent as an individual contributor
 » Had a track record of exceeding expectations
 » Displayed a special set of technical skills

This is an excellent start - but leaders can’t rely solely on their individual contributor skills. 
When you become a leader, your team wants to know that:

 » Their best interests are your priority
 » You are more invested in your team than in your personal success Because when your team is successful, you are successful

A leader’s success is no longer determined by just the work they do. Not empowering others is saying: “I think my way is better and/or I don’t think the work will get done.” The job of a leader is to enable his/her direct reports to perform to their potential, ‘Becoming the Leader Others Want to Work For’ requires:

Having the perspective of a leader by switching your:

 » Script
