This course is about learning the approach and skills of leading as separate from managing. Both are important skills in bringing successful completion to a project, but leadership skills at the crew leader level oftentimes are secondary to project management skills. Yet they are confronted with issues of: “How do you convey your commitment of high expectations?”, “How do you emphasize the importance of ongoing learning in the face of climate change?”, “How do you give performance feedback and not compromise the motivation of the employee?”, “How do you create a culture of respect given the presence of a divergent workforce (women and LGBTQ)?” These are leadership issues and successful skills increase employee retention and development. This is a 2-part course covered in two 4-hour sessions. Course Topics Distinction between leading and managing The importance and development of “Grit” Leadership style relative to the capability of the employee Leading by asking the question (closed ended, open ended, and summarizing) Socratic questioning Giving performance feedback Problem Solving skills – finding the root cause
