Developing the Leader Within You - Training

Your organization's ability to grow is directly tied to your ability and desire to grow personally as a leader. That is the Law of the Lid. If you want to reach new level of effectiveness in your job, raise your lid. If you want to grow your company, grow your lid. If you want to increase shareholder value, increase your lid.

The Packer Group offers a leadership workshop based on the teachings of best-selling author Dr. John C. Maxwell that is designed to do just that - raise your Leadership Lid. With over 7 million books sold, Maxwell translates the complex topic of leadership into simple, everyday language that can be applied and practiced in any organization.

In this workshop, we focus on not just learning leadership but understanding how it applies to your unique situation in your business. This allows the adult learner to instantly transfer leadership principles back into the real world where you can make an immediate impact.

Based on the best-selling book by John C. Maxwell, the Developing the Leader Within You workshop teaches you and your associates how to implement the behaviors of successful leadership.


Workshop Overview

While most training focuses on Job Knowledge and Management Skills, this workshop targets the practices and predictable behaviors of great leadership.


The workshop overlays proven leadership behaviors with a clear path of how to development those leadership behaviors.


There is a very specific model to lead people that results in the highest levels of commitment.  We call this model the Five Levels of Leadership™.  The Five Levels of Leadership provides a path that demonstrates which leadership behaviors need to be focused on and when.  Most leaders spend exorbitant amounts of time leading efforts and initiatives, but do not have the full commitment from those they are leading.  The reason behind this dilemma, and what you can do about it, is captured in the Five Levels of Leadership.


Our Developing the Leader Within workshop teaches leaders how to apply the Five Levels of Leadership into their specific daily actions allowing the commitment of those they are leading to reach new levels.




Workshop Curriculum
Our curriculum is designed to make sure what you learn at the workshop is transferred into observable and measurable behaviors. In other words, what you do differently after the workshop based upon what you learned at the workshop must be observable and measurable.

Therefore our curriculum is designed so that:

· You learn new leadership behaviors.

· Understand the impact of aligning your leadership approach with these behaviors.

· Understand the consequences of not aligning your leadership with these behaviors.

Action Planning
Nothing is more important than transferring what you learn in the classroom back to your work environment. That is why we purposely schedule time during the workshop for you to create your own Leadership Action Plan. Our facilitator will walk you through a process so that you capture the most critical steps you need to take to become a better leader. Result : A plan that is easily transferred into specific actions that you can implement your first day back on the job.

You have already read that we focus on Observable and Measurable Behaviors . This means we start with the end goal in mind. If you want to work on gaining a greater level of commitment from those you lead, we will help you write your Leadership Action Plan accordingly. If you need to improve how and when you empower others, then your action plan will specifically spell out how to observe and measure that behavior.
