A leadership training workshop to help leaders understand their
style, and how to use it to bring out the best in their people.
This in-depth leadership training workshop includes a full analysis of each participants' personal thinking styles (HBDI) profile, giving them valuable information about how they lead, manage, motivate, communicate, handle stress, and more. Each participant will gain a greater understanding of their leadership style, when that works for them, and how to make sure it doesn’t work against them or their team. They leave with a clear action plan for using their strengths in an effective and authentic way.
Agenda & Activities
HBDI Assessments—Before the program, each participant must take their HBDI assessment online.
Welcome & Warm-Ups (10-15 minutes) An Atlanta Challenge facilitator welcomes the group, sets expectations for the leadership training workshop day, then leads some fun activities to break the ice and get everyone invested.
Introductory Challenge (10-20 minutes) We jump right into the program with a thought provoking activity that requires ideas and input from the entire group to solve. This gets the group engaged and thinking about what they want to get out of the pro- gram, and gets them talking about their individual strengths and how to combine them.
Personal Profiles Review (60 minutes) We take an in-depth look at the factors that determine the results of each person’s assessment, what the various indicators mean, and how to put them to work for greater results as a leader.
Application Exercises (60 minutes) The group will work through a few exercises on how to apply the whole-brain system to problem solving, brain storming, creativity and other topics relevant to your group. This gives leaders insight into how to use the thinking styles with their teams.
Pressure Cooker (30 minutes) Small groups come up with a list of specific experiences in the workplace that are causing them stress. Then they brainstorm a variety of solutions to these challenges using the whole-brain format to ensure a wide variety of options to implement.
Final Teamwork Challenge (20-30 minutes) This challenge continues to draw upon the team’s ability to bring together each person’s perspectives and combine them for success. The conversation after- wards reviews the whole brain thinking styles and how they helped the team find a solution. The specific activity selection is based on group size, time available, room layout, and your goals.
The Teamwork Compass® (15-20 minutes) We lead a short interactive conversation about the key ingredients of teamwork, how different team members have a stronger affinity for some of those ingredients, and how to leaders can bring them all together to create an unstoppable team.
Wrap-up (5 minutes) We end the leadership training workshop by asking the group to share observations and what they want to focus on going forward.
