Keeping Organizational Talent

 

Course Description

Retaining the people in your group means more than cultivating harmony and productivity in the workplace. It also translates directly to the organization's bottom line: Turnover is costly—hiring and then training people consumes money, time, and resources. It leads to lost sales and productivity. If you think that most people leave a job simply for more money, you're wrong. Most people leave a job because of a poor relationship with their leader. In fact, the immediate leader is the one person with the greatest impact on a person's decision to stay with or leave an organization.

 

Learning Objectives

▪ Understand the business impact of turnover on the organization, the work group, and the leader.
▪ Recognize the leader's critical role in retaining organizational talent.
▪ Identify the interests and expectations that have the strongest effect on a person's desire to stay in or leave a position.
▪ Use probing skills, Key Principles, Interaction Guidelines, and process skills, to identify and address sources of dissatisfaction.
▪ Develop solutions to address retention issues for individuals and the work group.

Building a Motivational Environment

 

Course Description

If you think the best way to motivate people to perform at higher levels is by dangling a "carrot" in front of them, guess again.

Learning Objectives

▪ Create an environment that allows individuals and work groups to achieve their full potential.
▪ Spark high levels of sustained energy in individuals and work groups.
▪ Improve work group results by helping people sustain their motivation.

Embracing Change

 

Course Description

Change is universal. However, it manifests itself in very different ways, depending on the situation, the environment, the people, and the timing. You can test this theory by looking around your organization. What's happening in it now? What about in the last six months? What's expected to change in the near future? Understanding the recent past, the present, and the near future will prepare you to address important issues connected with a change. And it will surface the fears, concerns, challenges, and opportunities that you need to discuss and confront.

 

Learning Objectives

▪ Understand how people typically react when change occurs.
▪ Demonstrate an embracing change mind-set that will enable you to remain open to workplace change.
▪ Determine how you can influence changes when, at first glance, it appears you have no control.
