21st Century Leadership Skills

In a 2013 study conducted by the Institute for Leadership and Management titled "2020 Vision: Future Trends in Leadership and Management," leaders will need to be exceptional at the following competencies:

  • Relationship Management
  • Communication 
  • Delegating
  • Goal Setting
  • Motivating Others

To answer this challenge, CLTleads has a suite of classes aimed at preparing leaders for 2020: 

  • Interrupters Don't Impress Anyone - Working relationships are more important than they were 5 years ago. Leaders have cross-functional and virtual teams and those employees are looking for flexibility, trust and empowerment. This course covers emotional intelligence, communication skills, understanding others, and interpersonal savvy. 
  • Are You Smarter Than You Look? - Has this every been said to you? Professional presence is foundational to leadership. It breeds trust, strengthens credibility and sparks influence. This course helps millennials understand how to be taken seriously when trying to navigate the corporate world by looking at presentation skills, professionalism after college, and emotional intelligence.
  • It's Not Them, It's You - When a leader uses the wrong leadership style it impacts employee motivation. This course breaks down the different leadership styles and provides context so a leader can quickly know who to delegate to and who needs coaching to be successful.
  • Creating Your Personal Brand - Explore your strengths & opportunities, values, passions and career goals to create a picture of who you are professionally. This workshop is a working session, where participants leave with an outline of their personal brand.
