Session Description
Many managers feel the need for more control in their lives. They talk about things they want to do, but never get around to doing them. They talk about the importance of personal growth and professional development, but lack the commitment to actually grow. They talk about the importance of balancing work and family, but don't have a system for achieving it. This workshop introduces a unique self-management program that helps managers achieve greater success than ever before. Through the use of 21 specific, time-tested, research-validated strategies, managers learn how to overcome limiting attitudes, release their potential, and develop success-generating habits. They learn how to take initiative, exercise power, and perform at their peak each and every day.
