Managing Up, Down and Outside The role of a manager involves managing up, down and outside the department or firm. Successful managers spend more time on the "managing out" piece of this triad. In this interactive two-hour session we facilitate a conversation with managers about cultivating connections outside our "Up and Down" realm of control, and how managers can cultivate productive relationships which complement the goals of the organization.
Facilitative Leadership supports self-managed teams, the ability of participants to directly engage and solve problems with a minimum of micro-management from a superstructure of supervisors and managers. Self-management builds upon our evolutionary capacity to successfully regulate our relationships in small groups for productive outcomes, and harnesses the power of informal networks.
Constructive Dialogue®: Restoring Trust
Miscommunication and untested negative assumptions dissolve trust and diminish our capacity for resilience and adaptation. How can the glue of trust be repaired? Introduction to the practice of Constructive Dialogue® shows how focused attention on your part can repair other's perception of your trustworthiness. Our short program provides an introduction that serves as a preview to a day-long skill-building program. It can also be used as a stand-alone program for building awareness of alternatives to conflict.
The Social Side of Change
Changes at work significantly impact our life in terms that can be hard to talk about: our economic status, our identity, and our grasp of the future. Because of these implications, we seldom get comfortable acknowledging change, or receive the attention and help needed to adjust to change. In this interactive two-hour seminar, we facilitate a conversation with managers and employees about how they can effectively engage changes at work, and how they can expand their connections to include contacts with resources that will make change easier to navigate.
