Leading Inside the Box

| Aspects of Leadership Applicable to This Course

Lead Inside the BoxOne of the greatest challenges leaders face is not having enough time to get everything done. A major cause of that issue is the misallocation of a leader’s time in how they interact with the members of their teams. The Leadership Matrix helps leaders solve this age-old dilemma.

Lead Inside the Box: How Smart Leaders Guide Their Teams to Exceptional Results, Mike Figliuolo and Victor Prince’s book, is the basis for this method. The course teaches leaders how to more efficiently and effectively invest their time and energy (their “leadership capital”) to get better results out of their team members. During the course, you’ll learn:

  • How to assess how you’re investing your leadership capital
  • How to evaluate the results your team members deliver
  • How to lead individuals demonstrating the four major performance patterns (Exemplars, High Cost Producers, Passengers, and Detractors)
  • How to more effectively lead individuals demonstrating the eight sub-types of performance patterns (Rising Stars, Domain Masters, Joyriders, Stowaways, Steamrollers, Squeaky Wheels, Square Pegs, and Slackers)

The Leadership MatrixDuring the session, you will have in-depth discussions about each of these performance patterns. We’ll discuss how to recognize the pattern, identify their development needs, and execute a leadership plan targeted to their individual requirements. You’ll also create your own Leadership Matrix on your team which you can apply as soon as you leave the room.

The target audience for this course is anyone in a leadership role no matter how large or small. Participants must be willing to evaluate their team’s (and their own) performance objectively and commit to a plan to change how they allocate their leadership capital to drive better results.
