Keep Learning


When we reach our limit, it means we have an opportunity. We can stay where we are, which eventually leads to sliding backwards, or we can find a way to learn.

We can do better than our best by learning.

Learning is how we grow.

Learning is how we improve.

Learning is how we do better than our previous best.

What have you learned today?

Your Goals Need People


No matter how great a goal is that we've set, we still need the right people and the right actions to achieve that goal. Writing a splendid goal looks good on paper. Action is where the action is.

The right goals need the right goals working them. If that's your goal, then you are one of those people.

Our goals are as effective as the people involved. Engage the right people, and the rest is easy.

Clarify Your Goals



How could someone have goals that aren't what they say they are?

Lots of ways, such as:

- their boss assigned the goals but the team member doesn't commit
- they are confused about what results they really want
- they don't realize how under-whelming the goal is and feel uninspired
- the goals have expired and it's really time to set new ones

Lots of reasons.

We need to check in on our goals frequently. We even need to change them sometimes. Goals are important -- isn't it worth getting them right?

When our goals are not what we say they are we aren't likely to get what we want.

Bring the two-day workshop "Supervising for Success" to your location

Give your front line supervisors two days of training that will pay off in improved performance, engagement, and motivation for years to come.


Agenda:

  1. Developing leadership capacity, strength, and flexibility
  2. Ten keys to leadership success
  3. Achieving your supervisory goals
  4. Communicating for results
  5. Building your team
  6. Motivating yourself and others
  7. Manage your time without driving yourself crazy
  8. Coaching to improve performance
  9. Facilitating highly productive meetings
  10. Solving team problems collaboratively

Supervisors are challenged in every direction. They usually don't get the training they need and end up with more problems and headaches than they'd ever imagined possible. It doesn't have to be that way.

The key tasks of a supervisor can be learned. Our time tested and field tested training methods get your supervisors to explore, discover, and practice the key skills that will make a positive difference in their performance, their teams, and their lives.

How to bring this workshop to your location:

We're located in Bucks County, Pennsylvania and if you are, too you'll find this workshop surprisingly affordable for your organization. All you need is a conference or training room and five or more participants.
