The definition and expectations of leadership continues to evolve. Business complexity, globalization, and virtual teams continue to shape how leaders need to operate.

Managing Change

Organizations are in constant change.  These changes are a result of acquisitions, mergers, downsizing, restructuring, new technologies, directions, strategies, programs, role, job, boss, or leadership.  Change can be large scale or localized. Managers today are expected to be skilled in managing and leading people through change at the individual, team and business unit level.  These skills include: understanding both the process of change and people’s reaction to it, how to successfully manage others through an imposed change and how to proactively lead a planned change.  This highly interactive program provides a broad introduction to change management and equips managers with an understanding for how to manage others through it.

Increasing Employee Engagement

Employee engagement has been a hot topic for the last several years.  Research shows that the number one reason an employee leaves a company is the direct relationship he/she has with their boss.  The ability to actively and genuinely engage employees creates empowerment, openness and trust, clarification of direction and feedback on performance.  The manager is in a pivotal position to influence an employee’s perception of the organization from the hiring process through retirement or change of jobs.  This workshop will explore what engagement is, what drives engagement, and skills that managers can employee throughout an employee life cycle to improve organizational performance.
