WHY ATTEND

Maybe your company is bringing in new business and can’t hire fast enough. Or maybe you’ve experienced turnover and now four people do the work of seven. Either way, your team is stretched and productivity and morale are suffering.

Ineffective managers freeze and hope the problem resolves itself. It seldom does. But successful leaders take ownership of the problem. They realize it’s their job to proactively earn the team’s commitment to achieving both short and long term goals.

In this 60-minute presentation, leadership expert Carol Hacker will show you how the best get it done.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

She’ll discuss:

  • Why employees need strong managers to lead them in both lean times and times of growth
  • The importance of showing employees that the company has clear goals and a coherent road map for achieving them
  • How to position heavy-workload times as an opportunity for professional growth
  • Why you need to show your employees appreciation for even the smallest accomplishments
  • How to motivate people by giving them direct “line of sight” to company goals
  • How to use the power of teamwork to sustain motivation and prevent minor roadblocks from deflating morale
  • How to get people focused on the both short and long term goals
  • Why it’s important to communicate candidly with employees and create realistic expectations
