Setting the stage to taking the lead

Phyllis Newhouse opens the course with an in depth look at the power of the 11 Principles of Leadership and how you can leverage each of them to take the lead in your own professional career.

2

Know yourself and seek self-improvement

Phyllis walks you through the value of understanding who you are. From there, you’ll learn how to capitalize on your values, priorities, strengths, and weaknesses to take your personal improvement to the next level.

3

Be technically and tactically proficient

Learn why it is critical that you, as a leader, must master the tasks you're requiring of the people you lead, before you can lead effectively - and the consequences if you don't.

4

Seek responsibility and take responsibility for your actions

Phyllis explains that leading always involves responsibility. Using her years of experience leading in the military, as well as her tremendous success in building a business, she teaches how taking the lead requires a leader who can inspire people to take responsibility to achieve goals.

5

Set the example

This may feel like a traditional adage, but Phyllis teaches you why your own people want and need role models. This can feel like a heavy responsibility, but Phyllis takes you through why effective leaders make this a top priority.

6

Know your people and look out for their welfare

Take a quick journey with Phyllis through examples in her own business life as she shares why it is not enough to simply know the names and birth dates of your people. As their leader, you need to understand what motivates them and what is important to them.

7

Keep your people informed

Phyllis gives her foundational approach to how she lives out this principle. She explains that people do best when they know why they are doing something. It is by empowering her people to use initiative, in the absence of instructions, that she’s able to positively affect her bottom line results.

8

Ensure the task is understood, supervised, and accomplished

Your people need to know if you want a task accomplished in a specific way or how much leeway is allowed. Phyllis teaches you how to delegate the right way so your people understand what is expected and how to get it done.

9

Develop a sense of responsibility among your people

Hear how Phyllis helps her people feel a sense of pride and responsibility when they successfully accomplish a new task. She walks you through why this approach is not only critical for reinforcing what you want, but how that actually helps build a winning culture.

10

Train your people as a team

Phyllis has discovered that it's not just cliche' — teamwork is becoming more and more crucial to achieving goals in your work environment. Learn how to build it by recognizing the truth that only when people have trust and respect for you as their leader, for each other as competent professionals, and see the importance of their contribution to the organization, can authentic teamwork be built.

11

Make sound and timely decisions

Phyllis has been led by dozens of leaders, so she knows what it takes to be an exceptional leader. Listen along as she teaches you what to master so you can make decisions quickly, know when to consult with others before deciding, and understand when to delegate the decision to other team members.

12

Employ your work unit in accordance with its capabilities

Wrapping up her course, Phyllis shares that if you don't know your team's capabilities and, more importantly their limitations - you will not succeed at the highest level as a leader. Your people gain satisfaction from performing tasks that are reasonable and challenging, but get frustrated if tasks are too easy, unrealistic or unattainable.

Reviews / What others say

Phyllis exhibits sincerity and humility when challenging veterans, CEOs, and others to go beyond their everyday understanding of leadership and responsibility.

She's gotten to the top of her profession, and she has a ladder back down for others to follow her.

The places her feet have walked, alongside celebrities, military leaders — she could be reaping that just for herself but Phyllis has a plan to replicate that success and bring it to others. That's her integrity and her leadership.
