THE HIDDEN LANGUAGE OF BUSINESS:
WORKPLACE POLITICS, POWER AND INFLUENCE

 
Accomplishing the goals and objectives of any organization requires more than just smart employees who work hard. It requires savvy employees who know how to forge alliances and avoid animosities in order to be effective. In this session, participants will identify which of the rules of "positive politics" they are most likely to violate; obtain guidelines for their own conduct and for managing relationships with co-workers and their own manager; learn to avoid pitfalls in business communication, both oral and written; learn eleven ways to recognize who really holds power and has influence in any organization; become adept at tapping into the power structure within an organization; explore a real-world case study that involves numerous political issues; learn how to network in order to expand their influence and recruit supporters for their initiatives and career; identify developmental needs that may prevent them from becoming "movers and shakers" in their own organizations; and enhance their working relationship with their manager.

MANAGERIAL COURAGE:
FIVE SKILLS TO INCREASE YOUR EFFECTIVENESS

 
Participants are presented with a radically new concept that exceptional managers must possess - "Management Courage."  Management Courage has a long-term focus on the future of an organization that radically changes the way employees are managed in the short-term.  This seminar builds a talent management strategy around five Principles that go far beyond basic management rules.  The developmental emphasis is on engaging employees in order to get them to perform better rather than just disciplining performance issues.  These Principles challenge normal management concepts and require participants to look at each employee they manage and formulate a development plan and/or communication strategy that best fits the individual.  Each of the Principles is discussed in depth and numerous real work situations are used to illustrate how to get a better outcome for the organization and the individual that goes far beyond that one encounter.  Not only do participants get useful day-to-day tools, but leadership strategies to use in numerous other business situations.
