Looking for ways to make your company great, motivate your employees, and grow profits? Then Leadership & Goal Attainment is the course for you. In the first part of this course you will learn how relational leadership is not just a theory or a buzzword, but a way of managing through relationship-building to bring out the very best in one's employees. You will see how some executives succeeded where others failed and take advantage of those lessons of success to create your own.

Why do some genius-level leaders seem to drain intelligence and performance out of the people around them, while others stimulate, motivate, and get so much more out of their work associates? The second part of this course uses Liz Wiseman’s book to label the former group, people who need to be the smartest person in the room, as diminishers, while the latter are multipliers, people who use their smarts to stimulate and enhance the creativity of the group. This section of the course identifies what is considered the five most important disciplines that help managers to think and act more like multipliers, bringing people together, and giving others on the team more freedom, power, and responsibility, which ultimately generates self-worth and satisfaction. 

The third part of this Leadership & Goal Attainment course will help you with setting and achieving your goals. While it can be difficult to set truly meaningful and motivational goals, it is one of the most essential steps to business success. Even more importantly, setting, working toward and achieving measurable goals is how we all grow personally while contributing to organizational success.
