Workshop: Leadership Through the Self Fulfilling Prophecy

Leadership Through the Self Fulfilling Prophecy Workshop

Leadership Through the Self-Fulfilling Prophecy is a training session that will take the concept of leadership into the area of communicating expectations for those you lead, but with a different approach.

Instead of just telling people what you do and don't expect from them, and expecting them to align themselves, you can use the self-fulfilling prophecy as a communication method that actually helps people think differently about their actions and behaviors.

This course will teach attendees how the self-fulfilling prophecy works, and how a leader or manager can apply it to their employees or team members in a positive way. We'll talk through examples of changing your usual messages into new ones that produce better results.

Participants will learn practical and applicable techniques and will apply these between workshops; outcomes will be explored during part two, and feedback will help reinforce the power of the words used by a leader.
