What others are saying
Our training program consists of the following modules:
- Leading Change – Participants will learn how to lead change by addressing the need for understanding, WIIFM, education, ability, and reinforcement of any change initiative.
Concepts Covered: Change communication best practices, common implementation roadblocks, how to motivate individuals toward change, and training best practices.
- Leading, Managing, and Getting Sh*t Done – This module introduces participants to the differences between leading and managing, the art and science of both, and how to be productive in a world full of urgent but not important distractions.
Concepts covered: Leadership vs. management, model for managing, change matrix, power models, time management, reducing distraction, and how to take breaks.
- Communication: The Organization’s Lifeblood – Participants will understand why meetings are simultaneously the most vivified management tool and the most efficient form of communication when done well, especially in virtual environments. Learn how to facilitate constructive participation and avoid death by meeting.
Concepts Covered: Strategic vs. tactical meetings, huddles, departmental meetings, setting agendas, the role of leader and chair, and setting ground rules.
- Setting Expectations and Delegation – This module teaches participants communication best practices for them to work through their staff to get things done. This includes not just setting expectations, but also the feedback and follow-through needed to achieve the desired results.
Concepts covered: Expectation setting best practices, stretch goals, SMART goal setting, verbal upfront contracts, CPQQRT Q3, and 1-on-1 meetings.
- Tough Talk: How to Have the Conversations You’ve Been Avoiding – Participants will learn to identify when tough talk is necessary, how to prepare for tough conversations, and practice the art of better communication. They will know how to create a safe environment for communication to unfold and develop an action plan to deal with their toughest roadblocks. They will also learn how to coach others to address the roadblocks in their way and create an environment of direct, non-personal feedback.
Concepts Covered: Identification of tough talk situations, using KIND (kind, intentional, non-threatening, but direct) communication, personal styles, establishing personal goals, controlling emotions, and communication escalation.
- Motivation – Studies show that in about 85% of companies, employees’ morale sharply declines after their first six months – and continues to deteriorate for years afterwards. This module teaches participants what they can do to prevent that decline and keep their employees engaged and motivated.
Concepts covered: Model for motivation, capitalizing on strengths, managing around weaknesses, giving praise, self-motivation, ARCTIC, and managing different responses to expectations.
- Managing Yourself and Managing Up – Participants will discover how to absorb feedback in healthy ways, their personal styles of receiving feedback, working in teams, learning styles, and how to explain these traits to others. Also, when and how to ask for help. They will also sleuth out boss’ tendencies and how to manage up.
Concepts Covered: Introversion / extroversion, strengths and weaknesses, communication styles, and sharing methodology.
- Developing People – This module teaches participants how to develop staff in a way that lets them define a career that fits the needs of both the company and the staff member. Companies can increase retention and focus their training budgets on areas that will have the greatest impact.
Concepts covered: Coaching and mentoring, effective relationships, educational development, career pathing, improving engagement, succession planning, and developing managers into leaders.
