The Flexible Leadership Workshop
The Leadership Challenge
Leaders in today's society are faced with an increasingly complex challenge: To deliver business results in the face of rapidly changing conditions, while building team members' capacity to address the future. While organizations are becoming generally flatter, less hierarchical, less "command-and-control," individual managers must still determine which leadership style to employ. As leaders, we may recognize the value of developing our delegation and facilitation skills, but be unsure whether we can use them in every case, and still get the results we desire. This is where a flexible leadership workshop can help.
Diagnose and Apply the Appropriate Style for Every Situation
The Flexible Leadership Workshop is designed to provide today's leaders with the tools they need to apply the right leadership style to every situation. Some models for situational leadership focus only on the readiness of the individual; some models are too complex to use effectively in the workplace.
The Center for Management and Organization Effectiveness (CMOE) has created a learning experience that provides:
Participants in this leadership workshop will learn to delegate more effectively, facilitate discussions when involvement of team members is required, establish clear commitments and accountability, and know when each style is appropriate to the situation. For leaders wishing to strike the balance between personnel development and getting things done, Flexible Leadership provides a helpful road map to guide their decisions and efforts.

I just delivered a free speech. I am a great believer in free speech, but an even greater believer in paid speech. However, there are good reasons why someone like me would deliver free speeches.

We seem to be so effectively socialized into top down leadership that we find it extremely difficult, if not impossible, to change our autocratic ways. All this in spite of the many workshops and seminars on new leadership paradigms which are rooted in the empowerment of people.
