Learning Objectives of this Seminar

Managers need to first know themselves. It’s difficult to motivate and lead others until you understand yourself. Participants will learn more about themselves and how to go about achieving this objective with the other managers in their organization.

Managers need to understand their team members. When you understand the behavioral drives and motivating needs of your team members, you then set the stage for more effective communications and coaching.

Are your people aligned with your mission? You will learn how to look at your organization’s leaders and managers from a behavioral point of view to determine if you have the right makeup to achieve your company’s strategic objectives.
