When we think of the phrase “leadership,” there’s an idea that it’s something that someone’s born with. People tend to think it’s a genetic trait, handed down since birth: like height or brown eyes or something. While there are people who may have a bit more of a natural gift for leadership than others, everyone can become a better leader. Instead of thinking of leadership as “LEADERSHIP,” some kind of immutable, innate gift, consider it a set of skills. In this blog, we’ll go over how FullTilt leadership training works.
Leadership Training with the FullTilt Team
Each of the different exercise on our site for training leaders can help with different skills. .For example, the “Behavior Style 360 Degree Matrix” helps everyone in your team get to know each other better. When we say “get to know each other better,” we don’t mean that they all follow each other on social media and know one simple fact about them or something. No, this allows your team to learn what everyone’s skill is, where their true talents and abilities lie. Then, after your entire team has had a blast with the exercise, you can use these back at the work space. Utilizing the individual talents of your team members: that’s part of what being a great leader at work is all about.
Leadership is one of those things: you know what it is when you see it. Even the best leaders can benefit from our training exercises, because they allow even experienced, proven leaders to expand on the skills they already have. Or alternately, these exercises can also allow them to strengthen particular leadership skills that perhaps they haven’t had the opportunity to use often, or maybe don’t come as naturally to them as others. For example, we have an exercise called “Optimal Time Management.” Many of even the most talented, natural leaders can struggle with time management. This particular exercise allows everyone at the office to get that better with managing their time more effectively
More than Leaders, More than Followers
It’s easy to get caught up in the idea that “the leader is the one who gives the orders,” but the most successful leaders are good listeners, too. To further develop those skills, we offer a training exercise called “Cross Boundary Communication.” This exercise is exactly what it sounds like: it gives leaders of all types a chance to build their communication skills within a group. Communication is a foundation of team building as well as being a leader – effective collaboration is essentially impossible without it. In this exercise, leaders can find new ways of communicating better and more organically.
All Kinds of Leaders
Beyond the exercises you can see on our site, there are other ways to build leadership skills, too. We also offer custom exercises. There, we’ll sit down with you to figure out the best way to develop any kind of leadership skills that you’d like. Start the process by heading to our site or giving us a call at (888) 220-7501.
