Improving Personal Performance:
Going from Good to Great
The most successful, highly paid athletes, from championship ball players to world class runners, study their performance to identify what they need to do to get to their next level of performance.
In the business world, those with a desire to be successful never rest on their laurels. They too, believe that examining their technical, interpersonal and communications skills, reviewing their achievements and missteps, and devising methods to manage each more effectively will help them achieve higher levels of achievement.
This workshop is designed to assist you in identifying your strengths, the obstacles to getting you where you want to go and what you want to improve so that you will stand out from your peers. You will take that information, and with an expanded set of tools and techniques presented during this workshop, design a plan to take you past your current levels of performance, and yourself for advancement.
This highly interactive program is designed to help you fine tune the competencies that will be valuable in both your professional and personal endeavors. You will assess your skills, develop an action plan for attaining your goals and leave with practical tips, tools and techniques you can use right away to achieve future success.
Managing Change: The Art of Implementation
Successfully implementing an initiative requires more than a project plan. It requires anticipating, acknowledging and integrating the “people issues” into the plan. This program will focus on skills necessary to manage the human side of initiative implementation. Managing implementation with attention not only to the business issues, but also to the aspirations, attitudes and behaviors of employees and clients will go a long way toward ensuring success.
Ready, Fire, Aim!
The best way to predict the future is to create it! Business leaders today have found that developing a compelling vision, innovative strategy and plan is far more effective than leaving the future to chance. Too often organizations either don’t develop a strategic plan or write one that gathers dust on a shelf somewhere. Setting goals isn’t enough. Motivating action to implement the steps to achieve goals will get you where you want to go. Through effective planning you can determine your future and develop implementation plans that spur your organization to act.
Leadership in Changing Times
Never has change happened so fast. Business is being presented with phenomenal opportunities and great challenges. To get ready for this new era requires business leaders to reexamine the strategic direction and operating principles that drive their organizations.
To create and lead an organization excels, not just competes, that steers a clear course in today’s turbulent business environment, executives must inspire an organizational culture that supports flexible and innovative thinking. Managing change effectively requires everyone within an organization develop a leadership attitude – focusing on the future, finding innovative solutions, communicating effectively, being goal directed, maintaining motivation and commitment.
