You want to be a great manager. You want to inspire your employees to take pride in their work. You want to provide positive motivation to encourage initiative and accountability.
In this practical session you will learn ways to engage your employees in their own development. You’ll explore a model to help you think through your goal, examine your assumptions, and plan to approach your employees to increase the likelihood they will deliver on what’s needed more consistently. You will learn tactics to set a foundation so that over time their accountability grows and you can spend your time on other things.
Participants come away with tips like these to pave the way for more successful outcomes.
- Keep one particular goal front and center.
- What to do instead when things seem stuck.
- How to redirect them to learn what’s needed and take responsibility. Participants report they find these skills useful at work and in life.
