Competencies on which we focus for our Leadership GPS® leadership development programs:
Through self awareness and integration of self and others’ feedback, each of us can make adjustments in our behavior and perspectives.
The one constant in today’s turbulent environment is change – and fast-paced change. We examine our approach to change and ways in which we can respond more effectively to those changes.
Today’s global economy provides opportunities for us to work with people from all over the world, and those who are demographically different from us within the United States. We need to embrace and celebrate differences, learn how we are perceived and how we perceive, treat and impact others as we lead and as we follow those who lead us.
Conflict is inevitable – how we deal with conflict/disagreement/alternative perspectives differentiates successful and unsuccessful leaders.
Learning how to navigate the organizational culture and to understand and work within its cultural and political framework is a valuable skill.
Where you create and enhance Value for Oneself and Organization through Professional Relationships.
One of the top derailers to success in organizations is our inability to build, maintain, and restore relationships. J.W. Smith and Associates, LLC, can help.
We focus on understanding what vision, mission, and strategy are and how one’s department, unit, division, and job must align with overall organizational strategy. We also focus on how one communicates that strategy is often as important as the message.
We identify the challenges and opportunities that women face in the U.S. workplace; assess participants’ own attitude toward women in leadership and myths about women leaders; describe and critically analyze coaching needs of women leaders and impact of race; and provide coaching strategies to facilitate the upward mobility of women in the workplace.
Sometimes we focus so much on creating the business, we forget that what got us there (to business ownership) is not necessarily what will help us maintain the business. Do you know who your real customers are and how to build their loyalty to you through wowing them with your customer service? The focus of this workshop is on identifying your business “wow” factors and remembering to focus on your customers.
