Three Things Leaders Should Know (If Leaders Only Knew What We Really Think Of Them)

(1) Your personality annoys us

(2) Common sense isn't common and 

(3) You suck at communicating  

This humorous session is about reflecting as a professional and asking the question: "Am I part of the problem?" Employees, managers, and leaders will come out of these events with a new perspective to change their workplace behaviors and actions immediately. 

Participants will learn about the 4 personality styles using the DiSC model and how the differences can cause (and resolve) interpersonal conflict. We will dive into the fact that common sense is actually a set of skills learned by a common group of people and why it is imperative to take away judgment and offer to teach the skills that are lacking. And finally, the concept of active listening through distractions will be spotlighted through a short group activity.

Relate. Advise. Lead.

Five Ways Our Employees Drive Us Crazy and How to Prepare for It!

(1) They don't listen 

(2) They make so many mistakes

(3) They have no common sense 

(4) They have an entitlement mentality  

(5) They just don't care

This is also a humorous session about reflecting as a manager or leader. We will review each point and analyze WHY employees do things to drive us crazy. Hint: It is most likely their manager using ineffective strategies of (1) clear two way communication, (2) training and development methods, (3) making assumptions about their skills, (4) forgetting that it is 2019 not 1990 and (5) not engaging employees effectively.
