Limited Capacity seats available

Abstract:
Self-efficacy is the belief in one's competence to produce expected results. Research shows self-efficacy is highly correlated with self-direction and leadership. And, most importantly, self-efficacy can be developed.
Effective application of three mental tools (often unconscious tools with which you are already equipped) develop self-efficacy, self-direction, and leadership. Each of these mental tools can be brought into clearer consciousness and exercised like a muscle so that you become increasingly effective and confident in your abilities to lead yourself and others. And each has been widely studied and documented as an important aspect of leadership.
The three keys are intention, awareness, and confront:
  • Intention means to want, believe, and expect that you will produce an outcome or result. Many models of personal leadership development are built on the power of intention (think of vision or goals, for example).
  • Awareness means that you examine, know, and understand yourself in relation to others and the environment. Awareness is the first key to change. Developing self-awareness has been, and remains, the number one approach to leadership development.
  • The second leading approach to leadership development is progressive challenge, aka, to face or to confront. Confront means to be present and centered with one's uncertainty, fear, or anxiety while stretching into new experiences that allow new discoveries and abilities to unfold. Leaders confront impediments and opportunities.
In this session you will learn to access, apply, and develop your mental powers of intention, awareness, and confront. You will learn to combine them to take ownership of opportunities and to break through problems -- so you have more confidence in yourself, and so others will want to follow you.
Learning Outcomes:
  • After this interactive session, you will be able to
  • Relate intention, awareness, and confront to leadership of self and others.
  • Access your mental powers of intention, awareness, and confront more directly and consciously in times of opportunity or challenge.
  • Understand and have tools to deal with what get's in your way -- what get's you stuck -- when you are trying to use your intention, awareness, and confront.
  • Have language and concepts you can use to discuss, make agreements about, and develop self-direction and leadership in your teams.
