Gallup has found that managers account for up to 70% of variance in engagement. Meanwhile, for 16 straight years, Gallup has found that less than a third of Americans are engaged in their jobs in any given year. When we combine these two statistics, we are forced to face a compelling truth: being a great manager matters - a lot.
During this interactive and experiential course, we will explore ways in which we can increase our overall effectiveness and the positive impact we have as leaders. We will explore how to balance our different roles as: doer, manager, leader, and coach. We will learn how to communicate powerfully and effectively within our teams and with our team members - including how to successfully deliver and receive feedback and have challenging conversations. And finally, we will learn practical and tactical hands-on tools in order to apply these concepts with our teams.
Participants will learn:
- Your strengths and tendencies in the areas of doing, managing, coaching, and leading
- How to design powerful working relationships, set clear expectations, and increase accountability within teams
- How to communicate powerfully and effectively, deliver and receive feedback that creates positive change, and navigate challenging conversations
- To use tools, practices, and structures to support the use of these ideas back in the real world.
