Business Motivational Training Course On Leadership

5 Ways Business & Motivation Training Will Help Your Leadership Advance

Are you ready to advance in your career? In my business leadership and motivational training workshops, I give leaders tools they can start using right away to grow their influence and enhance their impact. In programs such as “Career Advancement: Release Untapped Potential of Your Underutilized Leaders,” I help leaders to overcome the insecurities that are holding them back and boldly step into their full potential.

I encourage participants to make a list of a few ways they can incorporate what they have learned immediately when they return to work. This way, they take action right away to advance in their careers.

For example, one client wanted to improve her ability to communicate more effectively at work when dealing with financial matters. Her list included the following:

  • Add appropriate financial information to my weekly presentation.
  • Include the projected impact on profit and revenue in updates given to my boss.
  • Search for ways to highlight the cost savings achieved by my most recent project.

This client knew she had to focus on illuminating the concrete deliverables of her work—and through this strategy, that’s exactly what she did.

The secret to positioning yourself for success is taking action. Just as I ask the attendees at my business leadership seminars and motivational trainings to jot down ideas they’ve had during the seminar, I’m going to ask you to do the same. Get a piece of paper and a pen so you can write down one idea that you can implement for each of the following business leadership skills.

1. How to communicate in financial terms.

Handling financial responsibilities appropriately is essential. You’ll need skills in communicating accomplishments by documenting them in a way that is easy to understand in order to demonstrate your value to the company and enhance your credibility. When you accomplish this objective, you’ll be able to access more resources, receive the required financial backing, meet head-count needs, and obtain the commitment to a project that will result in success.

2. How to reflect positively on others.

Make those around you look good, and they will be your biggest fans. You should do everything you can to build positive relationships at work. Then you will make a positive impression on others, and they’ll view you as a leader who takes initiative, confidently handles responsibilities, and does exceptional work.

3. How to expand your current job.

Go above and beyond, and those in charge will take notice. To be rewarded and promoted, you will need to get the attention of management. This will prevent you from stagnating in your current position and open exciting new doors. By increasing your perception, visibility, and influence, you’ll achieve your career dreams. Begin by volunteering to take on more responsibility in a way that leverages your greatest strengths.

4. How to find hidden opportunities.

Finding untapped opportunities will make you stand out and get noticed as a leader. Expand your thinking by being creative and unconventional. Do this when you evaluate business conditions such as competition and demand, as well as when seeking to create technological advances. To advance in your career, you’ll need to find and use hidden opportunities.

5. How to develop a network of allies.

Great leaders know they can’t accomplish anything alone. However, they can accomplish what seemed impossible when they have a network of allies. Forge a broad network of people throughout your organization who will back your ideas, increasing your impact. Commanding respect from others will make leaders and coworkers alike seek out your input and involve you in decision-making.
