In this advanced version, leaders attend a one hour class once a week with master facilitator, Mike Song. The sessions can be live or virtual. Each week they receive a Leadership Thru Technology (LTT) growth assignment. The assignments take roughly 1-2 hours and are implemented by interacting with direct reports.
Week 1 – Probe Phase: Leaders gather information and diagnose their team including themselves. Each leader is classified via a diagnostic test with a Leadership Thru Technology profile. They are given an assignment to assess their team’s TQ – Tech Quotient, identify tech champions, and crucial tech pain points.
Week 2 – Act Phase: Leaders take an hour and learn 10 extremely useful tech tips. Rigorous practices builds confidence for even the least tech savvy participant. Then the leader shares the tips – which we call Zip! Tips with their team with the goal of getting their people to say, “Wow! That’s really useful!” This triggers a newfound excitement around technology and often results in an exciting exchange of tips from direct reports.
Week 3 – Com Phase: Leaders assess all of the tech channels that their people use to communicate. This includes text, IM, email, virtual meetings, social media and many more. They focus on the clarity of e-communications as well as business etiquette. In this phase, leaders learn that most employees have a lot of confusion over what e-Com tool to use when and that most leaders commit a number of tech etiquette mistakes almost every day. Team discussions lead to brainstorming on how the team can communicate more effectively.
Week 4 – Charter Phase: Leaders boil the biggest advances of the past three weeks into 5-10 team best practices. They conduct a lively discussion about what insights can emerge as team standards. They document these strategies in a Charter Document and develop a plan for continued growth and sustained utilization of key insights. Leaders receive certification as Leadership Thru Technology Master Graduate when they present their Charter to Mike Song at the conclusion of the course.
