Essential Skills for Managers and Leaders

I was just promoted to management, now what do I do?
I could get so much done, if only my people would stop bugging me!
Why is it that no one seems to accept responsibility
and they only want to blame others?
How can I get them to change their behavior?

When leaders fail, typically it is not because they lack the technical skills—it’s because they don’t possess the softer skills to motivate and engage their people. Our “Leadership Development Series” is designed to give leaders and managers the foundational skills—effective communication, the ability to motivate and engage others, flexibility, the ability to read others—needed to succeed at any level in the organization. 

This series, consisting of 3 or 4 one-day programs is designed to help you:         

  1. Know yourself and others (Building Productive Relationships & Teams).
  2. Develop more precise communication skills (Precision Communication for Managers).
  3. Put previous knowledge to practical use: running effective meetings, giving performance reviews, using the art of delegation, and negotiating for a win-win (Building on Management Skills 1).
  4. In-depth practice on the above with a role-play that pulls these skills together (Putting Leadership Skills into Action).

Maximize your investment by developing the leaders in your company. Common Boundaries can help.

“I wanted to let you know that I loved your presentation. I truly feel empowered. Empowered to do what is best for me! I've worked for GE for three years, but have been in Corporate America for over 18 years. My goal in the past five years has been to get OUT. The stress has been too much for me. However, you said something that really got me thinking. I wanted to let you know that I’m going to stay in Corporate America and see if I can make a difference.”

—GE employee

“After completing the program, I found myself wondering how I could have afforded not to have participated. I took away from the session a greater understanding of myself.”
