Sometimes, the best solution for a particular problematic situation is not the one conventional wisdom or socially accepted norms might otherwise suggest is appropriate. Instincts and Intuitions: The Art of Non-Logical Leadership makes the case for the fact that exceptional leaders not only make unpopular decisions on occasion, they often make illogical ones at times. The DVD explains why sometimes leaders need to follow their gut instincts and to trust their intuition. In that regard, leaders need to learn when to listen to their head, as well as when to ignore it. The DVD is designed to provide a roadmap for doing the right things, in the right way, at the right time.

Among the topics covered:

  • Intuition and instinct defined
  • Intellect vs. intuition
  • No: how did you know?
  • Yes: how did you know?
  • Intuitions cannot be trained, but instincts can be
  • Doing many of the right things, in the right way, at the right time

    With Jim Quigley

  • Achieve your organization's goals through effective and deliberate collaboration.
  • How to identify the eight key archetypes of leadership.

    Modern management theory has us moving away from a command and control style of management toward a more collaborative style of collective leadership. According to Jim Quigley, this need not be an either-or discussion; some processes within your organizational hierarchy will lend themselves to collaboration, while others will call for a traditional top-down approach.

    Based on the results of a major, global research project at Deloitte, which includes case studies of companies such as Apple, Marriott and Tata, this session explores what organizations can learn from innovative leadership styles and how leaders can get people to work together effectively toward their defined goals.

    By Jack Zenger, PhD

    Program Highlights

  • What one critical competency must leaders possess?
  • The business case for inspiring and engaging your employees.
  • How charismatic leaders connect with others.

    What defines great leadership? Using original research on 360-degree feedback data for thousands of managers, Jack Zenger, with colleagues Joseph Folkman and Scott Edinger, identified 16 specific competencies the most effective leaders share. Of these, the ability to inspire and motivate others to high performance had the most significant, positive impact on the performance of the organization. And yet, it was the area in which managers were weakest.

    Inspiring others is a "soft skill," one that many believe you need to be born with to possess. But in evaluating the research, Dr. Zenger and his colleagues determined that inspiring others to greatness is, in fact, something that can and should be learned. The attributes of inspiring leaders, such as being a role model or a change champion, can be acquired. The skills, ranging from goal setting to developing staff to being a good communicator, are learnable. And even the most critical characteristic of an inspiring leader¡Xthe ability to make an emotional connection with a team¡Xis achievable, by building on key strengths in your own personality and leadership approach.

    Featuring: Scott McNealy

    Program Highlights
  • Why having an enemy is only outdone by having a cause.
  • The value of the "Obvious Number Two."
  • Why it's OK to have fun.

    Scott McNealy believes leaders cannot be created--only identified. But even natural leaders need exposure. They need the opportunity to take on challenges that hone their skills and generate the wisdom to reach their full potential. That's where coaching comes in. Given proper motivation and mentoring, individuals (and teams) will do their best--strengthening their organizations in the process of increasing their own effectiveness.

    McNealy explains how to develop your own strengths to lead other leaders. And, having recently completed a successful leadership transition strategy at Sun, he shares his methods for selecting and grooming dynamic leaders. He emphasizes the importance of evaluating on the basis of integrity as well as ability, and encourages you to get rid of the prima donnas (sooner rather than later). In this insightful talk, McNealy offers a game plan for preparing and inspiring your next generation of leaders--at every level of your organization.

    Scott McNealy co-founded Sun Microsystems Inc. in 1982 and served as chief executive officer and chairman from 1984 to 2006. McNealy guided the company from a Silicon Valley start-up to a leading provider of network computing infrastructure, with almost 38,000 employees worldwide.

    Moaning Minnie (19 mins) can give a thousand excuses why something can't be done, but her manager quickly learns how to turn a whinger into a winner.

    Wimpy Wendy (17 mins) needs constant reassurance before making decisions, but by consulting her and empowering her, her manager boosts Wendy's confidence.

    Lazy Linda (15 mins) gets away with murder. But by balancing quality and quantity, her manager brings her performance up to scratch.

    Silent Sam (17 mins) knows his job backwards but just cannot communicate. Therefore he is given time to plan and encouragement to express himself.

  • Helps managers deal with all types of individuals, whatever their personality
  • Maximises the potential of employees, helping them to overcome individual obstacles

    Imagine if all your good managers became great leaders. When you have leaders at all levels, and not just at the top, productivity climbs and the atmosphere improves throughout your organization.

    Good management skills are a start. But that's not what makes you a leader. What makes you a leader is the willingness of others to follow you. And this requires respect, admiration and many other intangibles that go into true leadership. Fortunately, even though not everyone is a "born leader," every manager in your organization has the potential to become a leader.

    This video begins by demonstrating successful management styles: direction, influence, collaboration, and delegation. It then explains how your setting and your subordinates determine which management style is most appropriate for your situation -- and the need to adapt to changing circumstances.

    Leaders need to:
  • Take initiative.
  • Treat everyone fairly.
  • Embrace change.
  • Develop their people.
  • Admit their mistakes.
  • Build community.

    Our dramatic scenes help you recognize leadership behaviors at all levels of an organization. You'll learn how to exhibit leadership by making good decisions and keeping your own emotions under control. And you'll learn the critical importance of personal integrity.

    Leadership takes more than good management. And there's no better time than right now for you to take it to the next level.
