Management Training for Real People with Real Challenges.
This is new. This is now. This works. It is a departure from nearly all “Management 101” out there.
Best suited for:
Supervisors, managers, and leaders.
[This program can also be customized for NEW or EMERGING managers and leaders.]
What you’ll learn:
- What truly engages and motivates employees (and how neuroscience research shows us this)
- Proven techniques, conversation sequences, and scripts for coaching
- What works and what doesn’t, and why, when giving feedback
- The myths around positive feedback – do high performers really need it?
- How improving staff focus can boost team performance by 25% instantly
- How increasing clarity decreases conflict and team drama
- The impacts power and status have on daily work life and what part you play
- What exact ingredients make goals attractive to your staff’s brains
. . . and much, much more!
Keynote, breakout session, workshop, small group coaching series, and online course*
We’ve relied on a management theory base that is long overdue for an extreme makeover. Though developed with good intentions, much of what we learned ought to be promptly unlearned!
Some of the very techniques taught to managers in training worldwide, are causing threat, fear, hypercompetition, and low productivity in the staff we lead. We’re creating culture built on distrust and cynicism rather than high-performance and self-initiative.
Because science hadn’t – until now – been able to show how brains respond to change, to threat, to competition, to reward, we were operating on the best we knew then about management effectiveness. Learn how delegation, feedback, coaching, development, and goal-setting practices all get a facelift in the light of new research. Neuroscience is offering up information about how our minds work that revolutionizes management behavior.
Though professionals in technical fields love this program, this is not a technical program! There is almost NO anatomy and this will not be too advanced for anyone. The content is highly engaging, interesting, and active.
The program design is brain-based (no surprise there), so you’ll see mini-lectures interspersed with a variety of activities and exercises, and frequent breaks. That’s how we learn best, and that makes for better retention, too.
*ManagementSmarts consists of the modules you decide to include, from the listing of over two dozen modules we currently offer. You can have ALL or just those that are most critical for your managers and leaders. We provide the listing, you tell us your needs. Then, we discuss sequencing and timing.
