Core Values And Guiding Principles

( Tap Or Touch To Flip )


In our opening workshop, we will explore critical core values, and guiding principles common to highly effective leaders. We will discuss why influencing outcomes rather than providing constant direction, significantly changes the working relationship between a boss and his or her employees. In the intensely competitive world of free enterprise, the goal of every leader should be to optimise the talent pool that surrounds them. Each workshop in the Better Boss series builds upon the previous one, and everyone in the room is encouraged to participate fully.

Session 6

Next Steps


The Path We Choose

The last five weeks have been all about understanding how the relationships we forge in business have a direct impact on the kinds of results we will achieve. While it is easy to see how something can benefits us, the question will always be, are we ready to make the changes necessary to succeed. In the end it is up each and everyone of us to decide what kind of leader we want to be. The one thing I know for sure is the way people view is directly related to the way we conduct ourselves.  While our family and our friend might be prepared to forgive us for our short comings, in business we have a job to do but we can not do it alone. The results we achieve and perhaps more importantly, the way we feel about the way they were achieved has everything to do with the choices we make as a leader.
