TCSHRM - June Chapter Meeting & Strengths-Based Leadership Workshop: Why People Follow Leaders

  • 26 Jun 2023
  • 8:00 AM - 10:30 AM (CDT)
  • MRA 5980 Golden Hills Drive Golden Valley, Minnesota 55416

At Twin Cities SHRM we pride ourselves on being a “Strengths-Based Organization” by incorporating Strengths into our leadership, volunteer, and membership professional development. An organization that operates with a strengths-based culture at its core can create real organic growth. It's not a surprise that organizations with strengths-based cultures experience higher employee engagement, retention, productivity, and performance.

Why do people follow leaders? What makes a person choose to follow another? In this interactive workshop, you will be introduced to Strengths-Based Leadership and examine the role and impact leaders have on their people. You will learn the Four Needs of Followers and the Seven Expectations of Leaders, based on robust research conducted by Gallup. You will learn about the psychology of followership to understand how you can approach leadership in a more complete way through the tenets of Strengths-Based Leadership. You will use the research and information from Gallup to evaluate how well you and other leaders in your organization are able to meet the needs of your employees. And lastly, you will reflect on your strengths and their impact on others and develop an action plan to improve.

Participants will:

  • Learn the Seven Expectations of Leaders, Four Needs of Followers, understand how they interact, and be able to explain the behaviors that achieve desired outcomes.
  • Recognize how your skills, tendencies, and talents help you demonstrate the Seven Expectations and meet the Four Needs in leadership behaviors.
  • Examine your capabilities as a leader, and the capabilities of other leaders in your organization, to meet the needs of your employees.
  • Develop tools and processes to support the professional development of leaders in your organization, with respect to the Seven Expectations and Four Needs.
