This program helps managers get their arms around what causes job misery for their employees and provides them with simple but successful solutions for boosting job satisfaction, equating to higher productivity and profitability.

The Blanchard Approach

to Building Trust

Trust is core to how people work together, listen to one another, and build effective relationships.

In fact, the primary factor affecting employee turnover is whether or not a trusting relationship was developed between the manager and the employee.

Giving and Receiving Feedback

It happens to everyone. You try to give constructive feedback, but your comments are misconstrued

and now someone is unhappy. In this session, participants learn to know when and how to give

feedback, provide feedback that enables others to take responsibility for their own development,

encourage or discourage behaviors that improve performance, and provide feedback to different

employee development styles.

People need to feel heard. In any relationship, effective listening may be the most important skill for building trust and creating a strong connection. This program will develop your skills as an effective listener, helping examine and expand your repertoire of what you listen for and helping you learn to listen with the intent of being influenced.

Challenging Conversations

Communicating honestly with a focus on desired results can be tough at times – particularly when

you need to deliver a difficult message, give performance feedback, or confront challenging

behavior. It’s especially hard to deal with anger, silence, or tension.

Servant Leadership is a unique exploration of the time-tested leadership principles of one of the

world’s most notable leadership development experts: Blanchard.
