Poughkeepsie, NY, March 06, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- Communication expert Skip Weisman will host a free teleseminar on March 10 and March 14 for new and experienced Managers and business leaders on "The Secret Formula of Confident Leaders: How to Become a Leader Others Enthusiastically Want to Follow", a popular and timely topic in today's economy and fickle workforce.
Weisman will be discussing “The Secret Formula of Confident Leaders: How to Become a Leader Others Enthusiastically Want to Follow” aimed at helping leaders create employees and teams who take more initiative in their work and who work better together with their peers and aren't fixated on what's in it for them.
"Leaders who were promoted into their position because they were good at their job but don’t necessarily have leadership skills and experience and people who have started their own business and had to hire employees and have problems getting them to do what they want them to do, correctly, are the people who will get the most out of this seminar," Weisman suggests. He explains that businesses have enough to contend with in today's challenging economy, and the workforce is a totally different landscape today than what it was a few years ago. The largest expense for a company is in its workforce and given the floating quality of today's workforce, it's hard to get commitment and initiative from employees who may have become accustomed to being used up and laid off. There is no incentive for them to give 100% to their employer, and this is where leadership skills come into their own.
Weisman will cover the attributes that set successful leaders apart from the rest, including the myth that unconfident leaders buy into that holds them back, and the one leadership style that kills the respect, trust and confidence leaders need to effectively lead today's diverse workforce. "I'll be covering the six specific skills confident leaders focus on that make them confident leaders and that others need to know to achieve the same results," Weisman says. "Leaders are struggling to maintain morale and motivation because of layoffs, stagnant salaries and reduced or eliminated bonuses, but they ignore the key areas in which they do have control over their workforce."
The free teleseminar will be held on two dates, March 10 at 4 pm EST and March 14 at 12 noon EST, and people can register online at www.SecretsOfConfidentLeaders.com
