There are times when new, emerging leaders and managers need basic training on important leadership topics and there are times when experienced leaders and managers just need to be refreshed on the theory and best practices of leading.

HR Solutions personnel are capable of presenting this content in a dynamic and interesting manner.

Working Style Assessments
Every individual has a working style unique to them. Every team is made up of individuals whose working style may be different than there team members. How the team leader understands and encourages team members to work together is contingent on assessing those working styles and how they fit together. The outcome of this workshop is a greater understanding of each individuals working style and how they fit together to accomplish the team’s shared result.
You can’t do it alone. You need others to help meet your goals and you need to develop others by assigning appropriate tasks. Coaching for improved performance is part of the delegation process. This workshop focuses on the do’s and don’ts of delegation.
Some conflict is good. It sharpens your perspective and can enable personal growth. When conflict turns into confrontation, with no progress being made, then that situation must be resolved. Participants in this workshop will learn how to resolve conflict while protecting healthy relationships.
You must have a plan to get where you want to go. Setting goals and working towards them is a foundation to success. Setting, tracking and reaching goals are both a mindset and a process. The training in this session focuses on how to establish and achieve high payoff activities.
Building effective teams is both hiring the right person and making sure they are doing what they do best. It is about understanding each teammate’s strengths and how it fits within the group. At the conclusion of this workshop, participants will better understand how the best teams function and operate.
Running Effective Meetings
The best meetings are the ones where things get done. Conducting a meeting is a function of planning and process. Pre-meeting agendas, published objectives, meeting time keepers are just a few of the techniques that people who run effective meetings deploy.
