After you complete this course, you will be able to:
- Define self-leadership and what it means on an individual level
- Assume responsibility for your results by understanding who you are, what you want, and how to reach your goals
- Describe the four pillars of self-leadership
- Use techniques related to adjusting to change, cultivating optimism, and developing good habits to build your self-leadership
You will spend the first part of the day getting to know participants and discussing what will take place during the workshop. Students will also have an opportunity to identify their personal learning objectives.
What is Self-Leadership?
This session includes a discussion of what self-leadership is, a review of the pre-assignment, and understanding who our mentors are. Participants will also be introduced to the four pillars of self-leadership: knowing who you are, knowing what you do, knowing what you need to learn, and using what you know.
Knowing Who You Are
This is the first pillar. In this session, you will engage learners in creating a personal vision statement, identifying dreams, and setting goals. They will also learn how to set themselves up for success (not just leaving those dreams on paper!).
In order to shift our actions and expectations, participants need to know how to manage change. This session offers an introduction to issues of control and change.
Knowing What You Do
The next pillar is about applying what participants know about themselves and using techniques to manage our behavior, like responding to negative and positive cues. Participants will also define lifelong learning, consider their own learning plan, and start making connections about what they want to do in terms of their future learning.
Motivation for Optimists
In this session, participants explore motivation and creating a motivational climate for themselves. They will also learn about the ABC’s of optimism, the benefits of pessimism and optimism, as well as dealing with adversity.
Using What You Know
In this examination of the final pillar of self-leadership, participants will learn how to take care of their physical and emotional selves in order to support their abilities as a self-leader.
At the end of the course, students will have an opportunity to ask questions and fill out an action plan.
In Person Training
The traditional classroom style of training remains our Most Popular and Most Requested format. On-site training provides participants with an in-person facilitator who will work directly with the team, whether for a single training session or a training series. The Mainstream team will craft and tailor your experience to ensure that your training session is specific, relevant and unique to your audience while meeting your learning objectives. Why settle for ‘pre-formatted, pre-scripted, one-size fits all’ training programs, when our team is able to customize a program that is just right for you? We know that every team has unique learning needs, situations and that they come from a variety of industries, each having unique customer needs and demands. Our programs can be scaled to accommodate time restraints, unique learning needs and even industry or company nuances and barriers.
Don’t settle for a program that gives you almost what you need; our team wants to give you Exactly what you need.
Delivering traditional onsite training results …virtually!
We’ve officially changed the rules and redefined what is possible in the world of soft skills learning. Our unique technology, accompanied by honed delivery methodology, have successfully replicated the traditional classroom-style training environment, allowing it to exist online.
Most online training solutions limit participants’ responses to keystrokes or to single person conversations because -with inferior technology- group discussions become distorted and confusing to follow. Our Virtual Room has eliminated those barriers and encourages learning through meaningful instructor feedback, skills modelling and engaging group discussion, without visual or audio distortion
The Virtual Room is for any organization seeking a flexible substitute to traditional onsite training; whether to lower costs, eliminate unnecessary travel or to simply ease the burden of demanding work schedules.
Lunch & Learn
A Lunch and Learn session is an onsite or virtual learning program with a facilitator-led session sharing valuable information and skills on an area of identified learning interest. It’s a great break away from a traditional training program, allowing your team the opportunity to learn while enjoying their lunch. Due to the limited time, the program focuses on specific learning concepts and skills. It is an interactive session that quickly targets and reveals learning objectives that are predetermined by the training organizer. Lunch & Learn sessions are also great as a training series, providing progressive learning programs for developing skills in a ‘bite-sized’ format.
