What makes a leader? And how do leaders get followers? According to Thomas Gordon, Ph.D., the effective leader is both task-centered and people-centered, i.e. able to meet organizational needs and group members' needs. The effective leader is one who is able to facilitate problem solving and conflict resolution. Leader Effectiveness Training (L.E.T.), developed by Dr. Gordon, is designed "to provide leaders with the interpersonal skills that build collaborative relationships and tap the creativity, motivation and best efforts of their group members". The program presents advanced communication and conflict resolution skills with concepts and philosophies that support their use in an organizational setting. Participants will learn and practice: * Active Listening to Help Others Solve Problems * Influencing Others to Change Behavior * Resolving Conflicts * Managing Values Collisions

As a result of the training and skills practice, participants will be able to: * Recognize when others need their help as skilled listeners; * Avoid the 12 typical responses that cause most "helping" attempts to fail; * Become functional in the powerful skill of active listening; * Learn how to get their needs met by confronting others effectively; * Learn the natural limits of the confrontive message; * Understand the price we pay for resolving conflict by either autocratic or permissive means; * Learn a far more effective problem solving model; * Understand the special nature of the conflicts called "values collisions"; and * Learn a variety of effective strategies for influencing, changing or accepting another's differing values.
