“A leader’s role is to raise people’s aspirations for what they can become and to release their energies so they will try to get there.” – David R. Gergen
“The greatness of a leader is measured by the achievements of the led. This is the ultimate test of his effectiveness.” – Gen. Omar Bradley
PeopleTek’s Leadership Development Program – The Leadership Journey
How often do leaders start their career the way some are taught to swim – sink or swim? People are identified as leaders once they excel at their specific job function in many organizations. It is a process that typically takes place by osmosis, a process which happens merely by accident. Why not equip your people with the knowledge of the most effective leadership practices that they will be able to leverage throughout their career? PeopleTek has worked with thousands of individuals since 1996 to teach the critical skills they need to know in order to be successful as a leader of a small team or large organization with thousands of employees. PeopleTek shows how to apply the skills in a way that leverages the leaders’ chief strengths.

Great leaders motivate individuals to envision the future and blaze a path to achieve it. This program gives leaders the tools and the secrets of success to becoming a great leader. Part of that secret is fully understanding and appreciating the strengths that one has relied upon for success to date as well as the competencies that haven’t yet been fully developed. The knowledge that is acquired and the competencies that are developed through The Leadership Journey are leveraged for success throughout one’s career.
Leaders become better managers by developing deep competencies in the following areas:
Communication Skills: improving communication skills with peers, direct reports and the senior management team represents a critical component of effective Leadership. To be successful, leaders must be able to inspire others. This workshop helps develop closely attuned listening skills that result in keen insights into your team that will enable you to speak to the needs and aspirations of your team in achieving a common mission.
Building Relationships: a pivotal component of leadership is forging strong relationships with your team and those who interact with your team. PeopleTek will teach you how to view networking in a more expansive and powerful way that goes beyond creating superficial relationships to lasting relationships that one can count on.
Delegate Effectively: you’re one person and can’t do the job of everyone on your team and also do a thorough job on your responsibilities. Delegating and giving up control is one of the hardest tasks for many leaders as it can introduce uncertainty and mistakes. PeopleTek will show you how to effectively delegate responsibility without losing control while increasing the efficiency of both yourself and your team. You will learn how to monitor the progress of deliverables in a way that avoids surprises and holds team members accountable for results.
Change Management: Given the constant effect of change on industries and enterprises, keeping one’s team focused is a continuous challenge. You will learn how to leverage change to your advantage while remaining aligned with the organizational mission and goals.
