Adapting your leadership style


How You Will Benefit

Strong leadership is the critical foundation for an organization. It ensures goals are achieved on time, empowers individual employees, motivates teams to work in solidarity, and generates visions for future growth. Yet, it can be difficult to establish yourself as an influential leader.
The Ketchum Leadership Communication Monitor polled 6,509 people in 13 countries worldwide on their perceptions of effective leadership and communication. Only 22 percent of respondents felt leaders demonstrate effective leadership. Communication was cited as a top value in leadership, but only 29% felt their leaders were effective communicators.
These statistics, indicate that ineffective leadership is attributed to not having a clear leadership style. This course will enable you to adopt the qualities of an effective leader and communicate more constructively with your team by adjusting your behavioral style to meet the needs of employees.
