Essential Skills of Leadership Facilitator Guide


Essential Skills of Leadership Facilitator Guide

The Essential Skills of Leadership Facilitator Guide is a comprehensive resource for anyone who will lead a face-to-face (in-person or hybrid) performance goal-setting training program for managers or supervisors. The Facilitation Guide covers everything that is involved when planning and delivering Essential Skills of Leadership training sessions.

The Essential Skills of Leadership Facilitation Program provides materials to teach four key concepts:

  1. Focus on Behavior – This section focuses on behaviors and attitudes and how to observe, document, and recognize how these two areas are connected.
  2. Maintain or Enhance Self-Esteem – This section explores the effects of self-esteem and how leaders can help maintain or undermine team members’ self-esteem.
  3. Encourage Team Member Participation – Participants learn the correct ways to encourage team member participation and develop a list of ways to promote involvement on their own team.
  4. Lead Effective Meetings – Participants learn the concepts of running good meetings by recognizing the aspects of poor meetings.
  5. Mastering the Essential Skills of Leadership – Participants engage in a culminating activity designed to practice concepts from each leadership skill.

To support the learning of these key concepts, the Essential Skills of Leadership facilitation guide provides the following resources:

  • Skill Practice – Facilitators will have just under 2 hours of skill practice facilitation content that they can use to have learners engage in the course content.
  • Reinforcement – At the conclusion of the training program, facilitators will be able to introduce and turn on a reinforcement resource that will allow participants to practice what they have learned on their own time.

The Essential Skills of Leadership Facilitator Guide is designed to be used exclusively with the Essential Skills of Leadership participant workbook. Vital Learning publishes both the workbook and the facilitation program. This course is one module of a 12-module series titled Leadership Essentials. You can facilitate this course on its own or include it as part of a larger management training series using the other modules.

Who is the Essential Skills of Leadership Facilitator Guide designed for?
