This workshop is aimed at people leaders in the first-level to mid-level management. Their success depends more on their ability to manage people as anything else. In this workshop they will gain deep understanding of personalities and working styles of people and how to manage them to increase performance and satisfaction levels.
The pace of change in the work environment is changing every day. No organizational structure or process is lasting for more than a few months or at the best a few years. A people leader does not have the luxury of long associations with the team members. There is very short time for a manager to learn about them, to manage them, to earn their trust and to get higher performance out of them. In this workshop people leaders get the deep insights and powerful tools to quickly understand people and manage them.
Personalities and working styles
Workplace is a medley of personalities. People are more than their resumes. Everyone brings their own unique personality and working style to the workplace. Gone are the days anyone has the luxury to grind them to fit the shape and size of the role. An effective manager of today has to quickly understand the people and give them the role and job function in which they shine.
Roles and personalities
We often here that story writers for movies change the script based on the available actors. The same skill is required of the modern manager and pays rich dividends, if mastered. Organizing the department functions around the available personalities is a powerful method that can be easily mastered using the tools and insights provided in this workshop.
Organization, roles and people
It is no big surprise that a successful organization knows how to divide the goal of the organization into multiple parts and chiselled out divisions, department and finally the roles and job functions. But far few organizations master this art. This workshop gives a huge lift to people leaders in developing that art in a very short time. It gives a unique framework that divides the organization fractally, in a way that each department and team poseeses a character and the team members make a formation to effectively fill those roles and deliver the expected functions of the team or department or division.
Interviewing and recruiting
Any one familiar with corporate or organizational life, in the least, can tell how costly it is to hire a person who proves to be a liability. But recruiting is a time consuming job and seldom the manager gets the time required to focus on recruiting. In this workshop people leaders gain the skills to quickly and accurately identify the personality of a prospective candidate, so that costly recruiting mistakes can be avoided.
Incentives and rewards
Part of managing a team is to devise meaningful incentive and reward structures. People of different. Not everyone responds to the same incentive the same way. Some respond to hard incentives and some to soft incentives. A people leader will have a huge advantage if he can quickly identify who responds to what incentive better. This workshop trains the people leaders with the skills to identify those differences.
Setting up for success
There is nothing like getting stuck in a wrong role for anyone. It hurts the individual's performance as well as satisfaction, which in turn effects the performance of the team. A successful leader should constantly tune the job functions to the changing demands of the team or department and redistribute he responsibilities to different people in a way they would succeed. A poor manager demands performance, a good manager makes the performance happen. The skills learned in this workshop makes one a good people leader, with whom everyone loves to work.
