The Agile Supervisor – Workshop Series

 

Owning the Position

Teams move inevitably towards a comfortable balance. When a team gets a new leader it destabilizes that balance, whether the new leader moves up from an internal position or the new leader comes from outside the organization. In this seminar we work with supervisors to own their position and to help their teams get re-centered. Our goals for the session include:

  • Claiming and defining your unique leadership presence
  • Establishing effective boundaries
  • Building courage to step up to the difficult tasks
  • Practicing effective delegation

Date: January 17, 2014

Time: 8:30 – 12:30

Location: 75 South 200 East, Episcopal Conference Center

Collaborative Communication

Like the clarion cry from real estate, “location, location, location”, the business clarion cry is “communication, communication, communication!” There are three truths about communication in business:

  • People want more of it.
  • You can always improve at it.
  • It is the life-blood of all organizations.

In this workshop, you will get the chance to practice communication skills that create alignment and engagement. You will shine a light on communication practices that derail your teams and disrupt your business processes. You will discuss how to deliver routine feedback and effective performance reviews.

With this focus on communication, you will learn simple techniques to build great business relationships.

Elements of Intentional Culture

According to Peter Drucker, ‘culture eats strategy for breakfast!’ Culture is a buzz word that simply means ‘the way things are done around here.’ Effective supervisors are intentional about designing winning cultures.

The way you do things, or your culture, is all about putting your important values into action. If you value quality, you will have a culture that measures performance. If you value customer service, you will have a culture that prioritizes human interactions. If you value innovation, you will have a culture that celebrates wacky ideas.

In this workshop, you will get clear about what we call, ‘The gap between the A’s’. That’s the gap between your aspirational values and your actual practiced values. You will learn four practices that are designed to increase employee engagement. Finally, you will learn several activities that will add some spunk to your team meetings.
