A half-day workshop that develops a leader’s ability to motivate and guide their team effectively.
Through a combination of cutting-edge tools, interactive learning, and hands-on challenges, leaders will gain valuable insights into effective leadership. We focus on two main areas: leadership style and leadership objectives. Participants identify their current leadership style, and how that style impacts their team. We then identify the key areas that teams need leadership in, and help each participant develop a personal action plan for developing their team for long term success.
Agenda & Activities
Welcome & Warm-Ups (5-10 minutes) Atlanta Challenge staff welcome the group and set expectations for the event. We then lead some fun warm-up activities that get the group moving and ready to fully participate.
Ideal Leader Exercise (30 minutes) Participants review the leadership skills of great leaders and then create an “inventory” of essential leadership qualities. Next, they do a personal leadership inventory and look at how their leadership style may be affecting their team’s performance.
Thinking Styles Module (45 minutes) An interactive learning game where participants gain valuable insights into their own thinking and management styles, and how they impact the people they lead.
Teamwork Compass® (20-30 minutes) Atlanta Challenge staff lead an interactive conversation about the key ingredients of teamwork, how different team members have a stronger affinity for some of those ingredients, and how to bring them all together to be an unstoppable team. Then participants develop their plan for meeting the 4 essential needs of a team, and how to implement the specific needs of their team.
Leadership Challenges (60-120 minutes) These hands on activities require brainstorming, collaboration, planning and creative problem solving. Activities are selected to help participants identify and utilize different leadership strategies, and how to use them to successfully guide their teams.
The final selection of activities is based on group size, room layout, specific goals, and amount of time available, but here are a few of the potential activities:
Closing Debrief & Wrap-up Activity (10-15 minutes) The group acknowledges accomplishments of the day and discusses how to incorporate the lessons into their work and life. We end with a fun closing activity and team picture.
