The 1-Day Managing with Power program is designed to guide managers to assess their use of the 12 Elements of Power in both their individual work, and how they lead others. This session includes:
- Introducing the 12 Elements of Power Model
- Assessing key Distortions of Power™ in each Element with behavioral examples
- Surfacing how key distortions play out in their management role
- Addressing how to remedy those key distortions with easy-to-apply tools
This day helps participants surface a critical mass of the most consistent challenges managers and leaders face. It helps participants look at the key stressors and skill gaps that lead them and their reports to underperform, change jobs, change industries, or leave work, even when the company does all the right things to keep them. These objectives are designed to help participants walk away from the session with the tools to immediately shift the way they manage.
Each participant will leave this 1-Day event able to:
- Articulate where s/he uses his/her personal power effectively and where it gets distorted, especially in the leadership role
- Use the 12 Elements of Power to quickly create solutions in any situation
- Make simple changes in management behaviors to get better results
- Work in a way that is more sustainable and enjoyable
- Find ways to “Refuel mid-flight”: to refresh and get back into a productive frame of mind in just a few minutes
- Apply the tools they learned in this session to help retain their best talent
NOTE: These are standard training objectives for this program and can be adjusted based on the client’s particular needs.
This program can be offered to all-female, co-ed, or all-male audiences. It is often chosen as part of a diversity initiative or a womens’ initiative as a training for select groups of managers. It’s also tremendously effective for leaders and mid-level managers as part of a culture-change initiative when an organization wants to increase emotional intelligence and management excellence.
Participants and Facilities:
This program is led with two facilitators for groups up to 60 participants. As an all-day training, it is best led in a room with large round tables to seat six individuals per table in crescents (all facing the presenters). Lunch should be catered into the room by the event organizer. Continental breakfast and table linens are important but optional touches. Working with Power’s event fees include participant materials (workbooks and other special surprises) and supplies for creating atmosphere in the room.
