About this course

In this course, we focus on the #1 best management style, the absolute best way to develop it, and how to avoid the two destructive extremes: micro-managing and hands-off managing.

And, if you are being micro-managed or have a leader that ignores you, we unpack powerful followership strategies that will help you influence how you are being managed.

Note that some material has been included from FliP U’s full leadership course (4 hours), “Inclusive Leadership: Be a leader people WANT to follow”, and full followership course (3 hours), “Followership: The F-word that complements leadership”.

Can you imagine a choreographer training only one dancer to lead while their partner sits in the lobby staring at the wall? Preposterous! Yet this happens all the time within organizations. Half the partnership is missing! That’s why FliP U creates progressive, ‘pracademic’, partner-centric content, developing both leadership and followership skills.

Applicable for:
This course is for HR professionals, managers, leaders, business owners, technical professionals, and anyone who wants to build healthier organizational culture and norms. The course is also valuable for individuals who feel they are being micro-managed or ignored. Finally, it is useful for anyone who wants to develop their own leadership capabilities.
