Why Front-Line Leaders Struggle


It is not easy to succeed as a front-line leader. In fact, the cards are stacked against you. First and foremost, you must manage people. People are not easy. They come in different shapes, forms, and sizes. Second, you must manage groups. Groups are complex. They a require a special chemistry made of a complex mixture. Third, you must manage yourself. You are you. You have quirks. You have habits. You have preferences. Oh, and don’t forget, you must manage products, projects and deadlines in a complex, breakneck speed world.

This presentation is about managers and supervisors succeeding. It is about understanding the complexities of leading and guiding people in the workplace. Mike Deblieux brings to the stage four decades of helping front-line leaders find their way. He shares his practical insights into what it takes for a front-line leader to succeed. You will learn about the value of “looking into the selfie-stick.” You will look to look up, down, and across the organization chart to understand the job of the front-line leader. You will look at basic leadership skills like delegation, listening, and asking questions to understand what it takes to guide people and teams.

If you are an HR professional, you will leave with valuable insights to help front-line leaders flourish. If you are a front-line leader, you will leave with a new perspective on your job and what you must do to succeed at it.
