Participants are presented with a radically new concept that exceptional managers must possess - "Management Courage." Management Courage has a long-term focus on the future of an organization that radically changes the way employees are managed in the short-term. This seminar builds a talent management strategy around five Principles that go far beyond basic management rules. The developmental emphasis is on engaging employees in order to get them to perform better rather than just disciplining performance issues. These Principles challenge normal management concepts and require participants to look at each employee they manage and formulate a development plan and/or communication strategy that best fits the individual. Each of the Principles is discussed in depth and numerous real work situations are used to illustrate how to get a better outcome for the organization and the individual that goes far beyond that one encounter. Not only do participants get useful day-to-day tools, but leadership strategies to use in numerous other business situations.
