About this training course:

Traditional management training has its roots in the industrial age. It was good for managing standardized work but falls short in the information age. This course will teach you how to lead and manage your people in the modern era to successfully navigate these times of rapid change.

The course is designed for managers who currently lead a team, or aspiring managers hoping to lead a team soon. CEO’s will also benefit from learning and teaching this proven methodology to all management personnel to maximize employee engagement and create a high-performance culture throughout the organization.

Some of the things you will learn include:

      • The importance of “radical transparency” to achieve superior results
      • The importance of real-time information and communication
      • Why meetings are the key to creating a high-performance culture
      • Why middle managers are the key to success in your organization
      • The skills of an effective frontline manager
      • How to delegate effectively
      • How to prevent “reverse delegation”
      • How to teach your people to make good decisions
      • How to provide corrective feedback
      • How to manage virtual teams
      • How to energize and engage your people
      • Managing up – how to manage your boss

The theory component of this module will take approximately 2-4 hours to complete. It comprises videos, articles, and concludes with a multichoice exam to certify learning. A score of 80% correct answers is the minimum expected standard.

When participants have completed the theory component a virtual 1-hour Q&A session can be scheduled with Stephen to discuss and share the best practices from this module, and to workshop solutions to real-life scenarios from the business that the managers are currently experiencing.

These discussion sessions are a unique benefit and major differentiator from other training programs. Your team will learn the practical management skills to immediately apply the training in their work environment and reinforce their learning every step of the way.
