Tools for Intentional Excellence for the
21st Century Global Leader Course Curriculum Overview
In order to minimize risks associated with the human factor and to improve the performance of operations within a school, business or organization one should invest in training. For example, many companies suffer from a high staff turnover in areas of operations, administrative and support staff. If we wish to retain knowledge and keep the skills within this industry, its imperative leaders implement tools to motivate staff and show them their efforts are recognized. What defines a leader? Since the beginning of time, there has been a need for individuals to take the reins and lead. It’s imperative for staff to also know they can grow professionally. Even though this topic has been discussed for years, the word “leadership” is often confused with the word “management.” In addition, many people believe that the title of leader is reserved for those with a nameplate on their desk or a fancy title on their business card.
Leadership is not reserved for those with a ‘C’ in their title. Leaders can be found at many levels in our communities, businesses, organizations, and in homes across the world. On the other hand, a person can receive the title of manager based on an organization’s structure; but not all managers are true leaders. In contrast, true leadership can be determined, observed and measured by others’ desire to follow you.
We believe leaders should think and behave diﬀerently; to strive to achieve the pinnacle of leadership; to become leaders worth following. It is through this approach that followers determine the designation of leadership -- not an organizational chart.
