Communispond offers a series of interrelated programs designed to develop a leader’s understanding of the impact that different management styles have on team performance and strengthen abilities to diagnose causes of non-performance, take action to improve results, conduct successful individual and team coaching and development, and more effectively communicate in workplace conversations and formal performance assessment reviews.
(1 day) The workplace and economic characteristics we face today call for adaptive, in lieu of status quo, behaviors. Leading change is a way of life for management teams. That said, people aren’t about to give up what they believe in, what they are personally good at, what they are comfortable doing, by simply listening to motivational lectures. It is predictable they won’t merely focus on taking time to poke holes in your argument—while resisting change—to point out where you are wrong—they need to have you to be wrong in order to stay with the status quo. Mandating that people change rarely produces the commitment necessary to carry off successful change. Also, training new behavior or skills—itself—rarely works. Change masters need to uncover a number of forces that either encourage or discourage the right actions and the forces that either enable or block the correct behaviors.
