What will your hunt for knowledge look like?

Hunt 1.  LEADING BY EXAMPLE: People copy behavior, what mindset, energy and action example are you giving your team?

Leadership and success in business starts from within and the belief in what you and the company stand for. In this session we want to discover how you look at leadership, what are your current wins and challenges and what can you do to overcome them and inspire, motivate and trust yourself in order to pass this on to your team.

Hunt 2. WHO ARE YOU AS A LEADER: Discovering the values, beliefs and vision that drive you.

In this session we build further on the information of session 1, but we go a bit further. Now that you trust the program, the group and learned a bit more about the importance of leading the pack, we can find out what is truly driving you and how it matches the company culture and its values, knowing that is the foundation of your team culture and their actions.

Hunt 3. THE POWER OF VULNERABILITY: True leadership and power is admitting that you don’t know everything.

A great leader is only as great as how vulnerable he or she is. You can’t know everything and that is also not what your teams expects. Admitting that you don’t know, relying on the team to know and be ok with being vulnerable and owning mistakes is what makes a leader stand out. Let’s practice!

Hunt 4. CREATING YOUR WOLFPACK: Defining roles, responsibilities, strengths and weaknesses in your team to establish a growth culture.

As a leader, the goal and the performance of the team is your main concern. All of the above will get you most of the way, but a well performing team needs clear roles and responsibilities, that you can also reward or hold people accountable for. What does your pack need, who is currently in it and what is expected from them in function of the goal?

Hunt 5. MASTERING YOUR MESSAGE: Communication is the foundation of good leadership 

Knowing how to inspire yourself, what is driving you, how your mindset, energy and values will influence the success of your team is one thing, but knowing how to communicate it, is just as important. How do you communicate and bring tough decisions or messages?  How do you turn your and the company vision into stories that inspire?

6. CELEBRATION CEREMONY – I AM WOLF : Let’s celebrate your completion of the Becoming WOLF program, while you share with the pack what these sessions have done for you. How did you evolve? And how will you move forward as a leader?
