Managing Up: Unspoken rules to managing the relationship that matters the most in your career

Any relationship takes intention and effort! And yet, there is very little formal or informal training available about developing a relationship with your manager. Develop your career by managing the relationships with those above you in the organisation. Be seen as the person that can get things done. Learn how to add value so you get recognised not ignored.  Get your superiors to make time for you and what you've got to say. Have your voice and opinions heard and even asked for! Studies have shown that employees with huge potential get bypassed and ignored because they don't know how to make themselves get heard and stand out. As the saying goes...

"Your skills and talents are useless if you aren't marketing them" 

If you don't manage up, you may never have the opportunity to manage down. Are you ready to take charge, do good work, and get noticed for it? 

Learning Outcomes:

From this session, audience members will be able to: 

  • Reduce unnecessary friction and develop harmony with your manager
  • Understand why you don't get listened to
  • Understand common styles managers follow and learn to avoid unnecessary friction
  • Develop mutually rewarding relationship with your boss and managers
  • Show ownership and come across as highly dependable associate for your boss
  • Communicate with your boss in a way that makes you reliable and dependable
  • Adopt your manager as your mentor and secure his/her partnership into your career
  • Undertake next big responsibility of your role and department jointly with your boss

Bridging the Soft Skills Gap: Teaching the missing basics to the leaders of tomorrow

The number 1 challenge with today's young talents is a problem hiding in plain sight: the ever-widening soft skills gap.

Soft skills, contrary to the name, are HARD to learn! 

Soft skills may be harder to define and measure than hard skills, but they are just as critical. People get hired because of their hard skills, but people get fired because of their soft skills.

Managers ask: “Why should it be my problem to teach these soft skills? They should have learned these things from their parents or in school. How can I teach these soft skills when I don’t even remember how I learned them myself?”

Here’s the bad news: Setting a good example or simply telling young workers they need to improve isn’t enough. Nor is scolding them or pointing out their failings in an annual review. According to studies, Managers have complaints about the young generation such as:

  • “They arrive late, leave early, dress inappropriately, and spend too much time on social media.”
  • “They don’t know what to say and what not to say or how to behave in meetings.”
  • “They don’t know how to think, learn, or communicate without checking a device.”
  • They don’t have enough respect for authority, and don’t know the first thing about good citizenship, service or teamwork.”

Soft skills may be harder to define and measure than hard skills but they are as relevant. People get hired because of their hard skills and fired because of their soft skills. Here’s the good news: You can teach the missing basics to today’s young talent.

Learning Outcomes:

From this session, audience members will be able to:

  • Understand the digital native skills gap and how they learn best today
  • Learn 5 steps to teach relationship-building and problem-solving
  • Apply the Platinum Rule to engage and empower employees
  • Use an inside-out approach to develop the whole person
  • Teach the art of self-feedback and instil personal accountability

Managing the Multi-Generational Workforce in a remote, virtual & post-pandemic world

The COVID-19 Pandemic accelerated change and our reliance on technology to get work done. It has become the new normal and leaders from organisations have been stressing out to manage all the change while having to keep their employees and team members engaged. 

In order to effectively manage the multi-generational teams through a virtual realm, leaders need to understand the innate needs, challenges, motivations, strengths and competencies that each generation bring to the table. It’s impossible to capitalise on this brain trust when Boomers are disgruntled by feeling disrespected by their younger counterparts. 

This can create misunderstandings and lead to conflict, which costs your company valuable time and money.  When teams can’t work together, productivity suffers. The marketplace moves too fast and you will get left behind if you do not find a way to work collaboratively.

From this session, audience members will be able to: 

Learning Outcomes:

  • Why you should care about the disengagement crisis
  • Learn how to overcome the negative stereotypes of Millennials & Gen Z and leverage them to their advantage
  • Demonstrate a deeper understanding of generational characteristics and why each are the way they are
  • Learn techniques for communicating more effectively with members of different generations
  • Appreciate generational diversity as an organisational strength rather than a barrier to progress
  • How to sustain culture changes for the long-term and retain top talent in the virtual world
  • Gain insight into other generations to increase empathy and cross-generational effectiveness
  • Leverage technology to bring virtual teams together
