Improve Your Team's Performance: Know When to Lead
and When to Manage

Every manager and every leader needs a clear understanding of the differences between managing and leading. Both are essential, but there are significant overlaps and distinct differences to understand. Knowing what your respective team needs, when, and how best to present it are essential skills for every manager.

Performance Reviews: Moving from Painful to Productive

Some managers actually enjoy the process of writing, delivering, and receiving performance reviews, but it's a very small group. Rarely is it enjoyable because to do it well takes careful observations, consideration, and knowing a process that usually works for both people. The key is to ensure that both sides understand the intent as well as what is meant and perceived as being fair.

Maximize Your Influence: Learn the Power of Questions

One of the most powerful...and influential...tools you own is your ability to ask the right question, at the right time, and in the right way. The person asking questions controls the conversation because she/he determines the subject, depth, and duration of the discussion. Beyond knowing the 'right' questions to ask, how you look and sound to others can have a significant impact. It takes work to use this knowledge systematically and purposefully. This program will help you maximize your influence through the power of questions.

Psychology of Influence: What Works, Why It Works, & How to Do It 

The ultimate form of influence is to have the other person decide to do what you want them to do, without asking. You can significantly improve your ability to influence others by knowing the three levels of resistance, how to deal with each, and using the six weapons of influence.
