Part 1: Time Management and Organizational Skills

January 17th 2017, 09:00 AM to 12:00 PM

To increase productivity in a workplace, managers must understand how to effectively manage time. Many managers already have more things to do than they can accomplish, so by improving their time management and organizational skills, they can efficiently free up the time needed to improve other management skills and add more value to the company infrastructure.

Your managers will learn how to:

  • Set priorities
  • Create goals and action plans
  • Be more organized

Part 2: Diversity and Effective Verbal Communication

February 21st 2017, 09:00 AM to 12:00 PM

Effective communication of a management team is one of the vital elements of success. If your managers are like most, chances are they communicate really well with some people; and with others, they experience communication breakdowns that create even greater problems. The reason is the different communication techniques we all use. Managers that excel understand and are able to adapt their techniques based on the other person’s natural preference.

Your managers will learn how to:

  • Create value from individual differences
  • Understand and utilize different communication preferences
  • Actively listen based on communication preferences

Part 3: Workplace Leadership

March 21st 2017, 09:00 AM to 12:00 PM

The power to change the attitudes and behaviors of others is the essence of effective managerial leadership. When you combine the ability to exert social power with a strong trust based culture, productivity goes up, turn over decreases and profitability improves - and it all happens effortlessly. The power of effective managerial leadership is something every manager within a business should possess.

Your managers will learn how to:

  • Understand and appropriately apply 5 bases of power
  • Apply the 5 leadership roles
  • Earn and show respect for their staff members

Part 4: Employee Coaching

April 18th 2017, 12:00 PM to 12:00 PM

The job of a manager is not to step in and do everything. An effective manager will train, coach, and provide valuable feedback to employees in order for them to grow. The ability to pass on knowledge and information effectively, while providing employees with the resources, feedback and guidance they need is the key to sustained success for both business and managers. The ability to effectively coach employees is one of the most underestimated skillsets a manager needs to do his job efficiently.

Your managers will learn how to:

  • Apply the most appropriate training option to the situation
  • Overcome barriers to learning
  • Coach employees to increase efficiency and productivity

Part 5: Empowerment and conflict resolution

May 16th 2017, 09:00 AM to 12:00 PM

The ability to empower employees is something a handful of managers do naturally. Unfortunately, most people require training to effectively harness this power. Managers who are able to empower employees and effectively resolve conflicts within a workplace create a more efficient and open work environment that breeds creativity and productivity. These abilities are a priceless capability for any business.

Your managers will learn how to:

  • Apply a 4 step process to authentically empower employees
  • Create opportunities for sustained employee growth
  • Effectively resolve conflicts within a workplace

Part 6: Breeding a culture of trust

June 27th 2017, 09:00 AM to 12:00 PM

Most managers are privy to sensitive information about co-workers and employees at some point in their career. This is a great responsibility that requires a full understanding of the concepts of confidentiality and ethics. When managers are skilled at quickly and easily identifying privacy situations and ethical issues, they naturally improve morale, efficiency, and trust in an effortless harmony that breeds a better work environment.

Your managers will learn how to:

  • Identify and respond to ethical issues
  • Understand the responsibility of the power they wield
  • Reinforce existing ethical standards
