Zenger Folkman is pleased to announce the upcoming session of The Inspiring Leader Workshop™, its latest leadership development program. Leadership experts Drs. Jack Zenger and Joe Folkman will facilitate the session on October 21, 2010 in Orem, Utah.
The Inspiring Leader Workshop will provide a way for learning and development executives to experience Zenger Folkman’s one-day interactive, instructor-led workshop. Delivery mechanisms include a personal self-assessment, experiential learning, short lectures, group discussions and practice sessions with feedback in order to engage and educate established and emerging leaders.
Based on research conducted by Drs. Jack Zenger and Joe Folkman, this program draws on data from more than 200,000 individuals who rated more than 25,000 leaders in a wide range of companies and industries. The findings form the basis for the recent book The Inspiring Leader (McGraw Hill, 2009) in which the competency “inspires and motivates to high performance” is identified as the single most important trait for a leader to possess.
“What does this mean for you and your organization?” asks Jack Zenger, co-founder and CEO of Zenger Folkman. “Simply put, inspiring leaders motivate others to reach higher levels of performance, thus driving organizational success. This includes improving employee satisfaction, increasing engagement and commitment, boosting employee productivity, encouraging innovation and increasing profitability.”
