Based on the book The Ordinary Leader: 10 Key Insights for Building and Leading a Thriving Organization, this course explores how to make each of these insights a reality in your own organization. 

Particular attention is given to employee engagement and organizational health - two areas that are of great importance to leaders and employees. 

As a participant, you will learn new and different ways to work through challenges and capitalize on opportunities. You will also be encouraged to think critically about your own approach to leadership.

This course is for leaders, managers, supervisors and anyone providing leadership within an organization. It will be delivered using presentation, video, personal reflection and small group discussions.

  • Employee engagement matters most

  • Mitigating and managing our weaknesses
  • The role core values play in talent selection
  • Keeping great talent
  • Human and financial costs of unhealthy workplaces
  • Organizational health is the glue
  • Getting the right things done
  • Innovation is not about technology, it's about solving problems
  • The number one task not to delegate
  • Leaders don't arrive
