Your workload as an HR professional increases dramatically when you take on leadership roles within your organization or department, and it is important to learn how to “pick up the pace” as a leader. It is essential to be able to make excellent decisions on the fly, so improving your leadership ability is crucial to improving your effectiveness in business. Zenger Folkman’s latest webinar, hosted by Dr. Joe Folkman and titled “8 Ways to Increase Leadership Speed Without Breaking a Sweat,” helps human resources professionals learn eight strategies that will help them become faster, leaner leaders.
Before you ask, “Really? What does speed have to do with effectiveness as a leader?” stop and think for a moment. While leaders don’t need to do everything faster, for many activities speed can significantly improve the effectiveness of a leader and the ability of that person to motivate those around him or her. Pace often affects attitude, because slow is usually boring.
On the other hand, people who had a tendency to move quickly and keep things going at a fast clip add more energy to the organization, helping to invoke stronger motivation in colleagues and subordinates. This webinar will help HR leaders learn the eight skills possessed by leaders who are perceived as “fast” and “highly effective,” improving the ability to drive better and more productive results in the workplace.
As part of the webinar, participants will have the opportunity to participate in Zenger Folkman’s Pace Assessment at no cost. This self-assessment measures the pace at which a professional prefers to work and compares their speed to that of peers and colleagues. The assessment measures situations such as:
- Are you more concerned about making mistakes or moving too slowly?
- Do you tend to make decisions rapidly or deliberate on different alternatives?
- Do you assume when beginning a project that it will finish before the deadline or run late?
A link to the assessment will be emailed after registration, so be sure to enter a correct email address to ensure the ability to take the assessment prior to the webinar. This webinar takes place on March 25, 2015 at 1:00 PM EDT. Seats are limited, so be sure to register here before it’s too late.
