Leading the Way Head First and Heart First
Today…You Can’t Manage if You Don’t Lead
Perhaps there was a time when the work of the manager and that of the leader could be separated. In the manufacturing and industrial eras, the manager’s job was to follow the orders, organize the work, assign the tasks, coordinate the results and ensure the job got done as ordered.
As project managers in the 21st century, this is no longer enough. In today’s economy, value comes increasingly from the knowledge of people, and where workers are no longer undifferentiated cogs in a machine. People look to their managers, not just to assign them a task, but to define for them a purpose.
And managers must organize workers, not just to maximize efficiency, but to nurture skills, evelop talent, and inspire results.
The late management guru Peter Drucker wrote, “The task is to lead people. And the goal is to make productive the specific strengths and knowledge of every individual.”
In this presentation, you will learn what Peter Drucker was inferring and how to develop from a Head-First Manager into a Heart-First Leader. BOTH are necessary for your success.
You will discover:
The difference between your “heart” and your “brain”
How your brain limits your perspectives and your heart expands them
That leadership traits can be learned by understanding value
How axiology can increase your leadership abilities
That your “thinking” STRENGTHS are the key to your success
How to shift from a head-first manager to a heart-first leader
