Becoming a More Effective Listener and Engaging Leader

Overview: An effective leader or manager is essential for a successful business, and that often starts with how well he or she can communicate with team members, while meeting the expectations of senior staff. Being able to listen to the needs of others, effectively communicate key objectives, and relate to different values and points-of-view is critical.


Empathy towards one’s colleagues is one of Google’s stated keys to becoming a better manager, as are a blend of leadership and coaching skills. 


When a manager fails to reach common ground with his or her team, and alienates, rather than motivates, they negatively impact productivity and often create an uninspiring environment.


The expression that there is no “I” in teams, fails to take into account that a team is simply a group of individuals who need to work well together.


Who Should Attend: This program is offered to individuals who currently manage staff, lead teams, or want to expand their communication skills with the hopes of being promoted to management. It is also essential for top performers, like successful salespeople, who are often considered for management position, but aren’t prepared for the task at hand.
