The success of a collaborative organization is often heavily dependent on the proficiency of the leaders that are implemented to help steer teams in the right direction. In The Leadership Program, Peter Nilsson uses his expertise in organizational improvements and communication to hone in on what makes an excellent leader. What he presents is beneficial not only to the formal leaders in an organization but also to the essential informal leaders as well. By breaking down the success keys Nilsson developed for excellent communication and using them in a leadership context, he provides a closer look into the most critical aspects of leadership. With The Leadership Program, leaders of all types will learn to enact and enhance their own leadership styles.
Using his success keys in communication, Nilsson provides a road map for becoming an excellent leader by evaluating the aspects of good communication from a leader’s perspective. Working through each of the program’s modules, participants learn the habits of the most efficient leaders. They will analyze skills such as nonverbal communication and leading successful meetings and learn how to redirect frustration, resolve conflicts and encourage progress. Finally, they will work on collaborative exercises that inspire them to reflect as a team of leaders. This provides the opportunity to integrate what was learned so that it can be brought back to the organization and utilized to make rapid improvements.
The Leadership Program produces more efficient leaders that can guide their teams in a clearer direction toward success. Those with traditional leadership roles will gain a better understanding of their strengths and weaknesses and learn how to self-reflect for improvement. Teams as a whole will address the definition of good leadership and will learn to take on this role at all levels to become ambassadors for their organization. Participants will gain a mutual responsibility for their tasks and feel more ownership for the role they play on their team. Using the tools they gain, they will be able to encourage better communication, more engagement, and increased participation within their organization.
