Course Description

We'll start our educational journey by having a discussion of the current state of work as a functional/cultural platform. We'll examine the challenge you face as a manager inside this system and how it's affecting the productivity, engagement, morale, motivation and the focus of your workforce. Next, we'll establish the high-performance platform with take-aways on how to begin building a culture of competence, not complacency. Then you will learn techniques on how to go from utilizing a 20th century management style when managing performance, to deploying the behaviors of a 21st century Results Coach. See how to turn your conversations into objective, productive conversations. At the end of each section, you will take a workplace survey to get an idea of how your workplace stacks up against the high-performance platform. This course is for people managers, small business leaders, entrepreneurs and MBA students.

What are the requirements?

  • Remembering the day you vowed never to be a micromanager and then finding out you may be just that!
  • The frustration that can go along with managing people.
  • Finding out that giving a lot of freedom to your employees meant the work wasn't getting done.

What am I going to get from this course?

  • Use performance language that develops employee competence
  • Avoid subjective conversations that reinforce command/control management style
  • Recognize/reward employee behaviors that build a culture of accountability

What is the target audience?

  • People managers
  • Small business owners
  • Project managers
  • Entrepreneurs
  • MBA students

By Cali Ressler & Jody Thompson Published June 5, 2013

“Employees don't leave companies. They leave managers.

70% of employees don't feel valued by their employers. 64% of Americans leave their jobs due to lack of recognition. This impacts the bottom line because customers feel the effects of employee success and either respond with loyalty, or get turned off by bad service or inferior products. There has to be a better way to improve employee and manager relationships in order to maximize business success. The answer is simple.

Manage the work, not the people.”
