Management Development


Are your managers engaging their teams? The single most contributing factor to employee commitment is their relationship with their manager. Employee engagement begins with having the “right” managers in place and then providing them with tools and development opportunities to enhance their leadership skills and achieve important business results.

The following learning opportunities focus on core management and leadership skills that contribute to team and organizational success. Contact us for more information about bringing these learning opportunities to your workplace.

Team Dynamics and Communication

The first step in management development begins with self awareness. This session creates greater awareness about the impact of managers’ style on team interaction and performance. In addition, participants explore individual team member’s style tendencies and how to “flex” to individuals to achieve performance results.

Communication Style and Versatility

For managers, understanding and working with communication style differences is critical to success. This program is specifically tailored to managers and focuses on developing versatility skills to adapt to individuals and increase your communication effectiveness resulting in improved communication, reduced conflict, and enhanced team performance.

Teams @ Work

Some teams never reach their full potential because of lack of understanding about how to work well together. The Teams@Work session helps participants understand and adapt to the differences in people’s behavioral styles. Several activities provide deeper insights into individual team member communication preferences and includes a group discussion about what you do “that helps me and hinders me.” Each session is customized based on individual team objectives, helping them reach the highest level of team interaction and performance.

Select the Best

Additionally, participants will discover how to use behavior-based interviewing techniques to conduct highly effective interviews and make enhanced hiring decisions.

Bringing Out the BEST in Others
