OPEN-DOOR & COURAGEOUS LEADERSHIP
Courageous Leadership: Building Backbone and Boosting Results
How to Lift People, Profits and Performance
The Courageous Leadership workshop is a flagship offering. The program, which was authored by Giant Leap's founder and is published by Wiley Publishing, has been taught to thousands of executives from leading organisations all around the globe.
Aristotle said that courage is the first virtue because it makes all the other virtues possible. Courage is also the first virtue of business, because it's the lifeblood of leadership, entrepreneurship and innovation. Courageous workers step up to challenges, seek out leadership roles, and assert innovative ideas...all for the good of the company. This program will focus on helping people be more courageous at work so they can be "opportunity seekers".

Great leaders are opportunity-creators; they "open doors" of opportunity for others. Drawing on the concepts introduced in the bestselling leadership training book, Leaders Open Doors (published by ATD Press and authored by Giant Leap's founder), participants learn radically simple ways to help people and organisations grow by creating challenging and meaningful opportunities.
People and organizations grow and develop when they intentionally pursue goals and challenges that stretch their skills and test their mettle. This workshop focuses on aligning the needs of the organization with the career aspirations of those they lead. The emphasis is on equipping participants with specific actions and "take aways" that can be immediately applied back on the job. Content includes:
Understand what it means to be an Open-door leader.
Learn why being an opportunity-creator is far more valuable than being a problem-solver.
Learn why making people uncomfortable is a core part of a leader's job.
Be introduced to six leadership "doors" that all leaders need to open.
Understand why having confident humility is central to being a great leader.
A leader have two primary jobs; 1. Leave the organisation better off than you found it, and 2. Leave people better off than you found them. This program will help leaders accomplish both!
"The message of Leaders Open Doors is insightful -- if you aren't opening doors for your people, you're closing them!"
