- Communicating for Results
If you believe that your personal objective as a leader is to get results,
you'll certainly appreciate the importance of communicating clearly,
in a manner that motivates your people instead of confusing them or
making them resentful. The big difference in people, their organizations
and their competitive vitality is how well they communicate with one
another. This module provides guidelines on how a leader can effectively
communicate to employees, peers, and management while avoiding breakdowns
- Listening Techniques
Listening is the form of communication most often employed during an
average day. Psychologists tell us that the average person, during a
typical day, spends 42% of the time listening, 32% talking, 15% reading,
and 11% writing. They also tell us that we miss about 85% of what we
do hear. This module stresses the fact that listening is an active process
that is critical to performing well as a leader. Key actions are provided
to enhance the participants' ability to listen more productively.
- Critical Information Gathering
A history of "fighting fires" in an organization may sometimes
cause a leader to make snap judgments that lead to even greater problems.
The ability to gather quality, in-depth information is a critical skill
that is seldom taught to today's aspiring leaders. This module offers
guidelines for effectively gathering the required information that will
result in making the most productive decision - regardless of the situation.
- Communicating Ideas
Much of a leader's effectiveness is often measured by his/her ability
to successfully communicate a thought or idea. It may involve presenting
a new innovative approach, giving directions, or defining policies and
procedures. Leaders are not born with this skill - it must be developed
through preparation and practice. This module provides a game plan to
follow to insure that your idea is fully understood - whether written
or spoken, delivered to an individual or a large group.
- Managing Time and Tasks
True time management has little, if anything, to do with the clock -
the secret to managing time is controlling events rather than minutes
and hours. Participants will learn the importance of utilizing Time
Spheres and Action Grids; establishing, enhancing, and maintaining powerful
internal and external networks; and the power of proper delegation.
- Setting Goals for Productivity
While most everyone professes to understand and utilize goal-setting
techniques, research finds the opposite to be true. Research also reveals
that those who have consistently used goal-setting techniques have excelled
in every aspect of their lives. This module defines the various types
of goals, provides 12 basic guidelines for goal-setting, identifies
obstacles, and reveals the power of networking, visualization, and action
