Leading an engaged organization: People-centric leadership 101

When:  Dec 7, 2018 from 8:30 AM to 4:30 PM (ET)

An inspiring and engaging culture is no longer a “nice to have.” It is an absolute must in finding and retaining the best and brightest employees. 

Long term employment with a single organization is becoming a thing of the past. Employees are no longer willing to tolerate lack of fulfillment or down right unhappiness in their jobs. The internet allows employees to seek out more attractive opportunities while easily accessing information on organizational culture, allowing companies to easily seek out talented employees and lure them away. Organizations are continuously challenged to be more innovative as the global marketplace becomes more competitive. It is crucial that companies engage the minds of everyone in the organization to survive and thrive. On top of all this, leadership in organizations is forced to operate beyond capacity, struggling or unable to support growth. Creating an engaged culture is the golden key to freeing precious leadership capacity. 

This full-day workshop explores how to build a people-centric culture in your organization. The PCL 101 course was designed by AME to provide organizations with a comprehensive overview of people-centric leadership and the behaviors required to build a culture where every day, everyone is fulfilled by pursuing excellence and everybody flourishes. It begins by answering the question, “Why do we need to change?” Using a simple framework, the course explores the key leadership behaviors necessary to build a people-centric culture, including:

  • Honest and persistent self-reflection
  • Building relationships
  • Reflective listening and effective communication
  • Celebration and recognition
  • Supporting the growth and development of people
