  1. A sure foundation for effective leadership, the 4 Roles establish an essential framework of success for leaders everywhere. The world is changing at an unprecedented pace. How does this influence the skills needed from a leader? Even in the most turbulent times, there are four roles that are highly predictive of success: Inspire Trust, Create Vision, Execute Strategy, and Coach Potential. Leaders who feel the pressure of achieving results, must consciously lead themselves and their teams in alignment with these roles. This course is designed to communicate the important role leaders play in being someone that others will follow. Not only will you learn to improve as a leader personally, but you will discover how to inspire and develop others. The course will provide key insights and tangible resources to:

    *Reflect on character and competence—the elements of credibility that will allow you to intentionally build a culture of trust.

    *Create a shared vision, strategy, and communicate it so powerfully that others follow leaders on the journey.

    *Think big and execute a vision and strategy all the way through to completion with cascading goals.

    *Develop the leadership potential in others and improve performance through consistent feedback and coaching.
