Practical Leadership

One-Day Non-Profit Workshop

A Logical and Practical Leadership Approach

The Practical Leadership workshop helps participants identify and focus on the leadership competencies that will be most beneficial to accomplish their business objectives. Participants learn the differences between leadership and management and how to develop specific leadership abilities. Through a series of exercises, participants determine the most important leadership traits to develop immediately.

Based on Auxilium’s Leadership for Engineers program, thousands of engineers have validated this learning method as a practical leadership development approach. One hundred percent of the profit from this workshop is donated to the charities we support (see below).

Case studies and real-life examples illustrate how the principles apply on the job. The Practical Leadership case studies and examples are drawn from a broad range of team environments at small, medium, and large companies serving many industries. You will also benefit from the instructor’s direct experience leading successful team projects for over 25 years.

After participating in the Practical Leadership workshop you will be enabled to:

  • Become more influential
  • Improve ability to lead projects and teams
  • Identify leadership development goals specific to your needs
  • Get more support for ideas that will benefit your company
  • Build rapport with managers and peers
  • Improve team communication

What’s Included

The Practical Leadership registration fee includes a comprehensive guidebook, case studies, assessments, personalized development plan, tip sheets, and email/phone follow-up with the workshop leader to assist with implementation. Lunch and refreshments are also included.
