Employee Training

Our approach to employee training is to provide similar content areas (when relevant) to employees as we do leaders.  The audience and design is of course different, but the impact of this approach creates:

  • A consistent understanding and learning of key skills
  • A more collaborative manager / employee working relationship built on mutual understanding
  • An opportunity to accelerate trust and overall performance

As a result, we proactively find ways to leverage similar types of content for both the manager and employee audiences.  Example of content topics include:

  • Communicating for success
  • Sustaining personal motivation and engagement
  • Connecting the dots - performance management 
  • Receiving and giving feedback
  • Having difficult conversations
  • Active listening
  • Participating in productive meetings
  • Managing your career development
  • Navigating through change
  • Building trust
  • Influencing without authority
  • Managing up
  • Developing personal brand

Similar to our leadership training approach, self-assessments are included in the training.  This helps build the employee's self-awareness and creates a more open dialogue with the employee's manager - sharing each others assessments to better understand how best to work together.
