Description

Practical techniques any manager can use to motivate new behaviors and deliver better business results Why are managers employees’ preferred source of communication? Because employees crave information that affects their day-to-day lives – information that only their managers can provide. Andy Szpekman, president of AHS Communications, outlines what managers can do to meet employee expectations, become better communicators and be more successful managers. You’ll learn the four competencies every manager needs, the type of communication employees demand, and proven ways to change people’s attitudes and behaviors. You’ll leave the session with a solid understanding of what separates outstanding managers from the rest, as well as useful tips and simple tools any manager can apply immediately on the job. Whether you manage others or advise those who do, this teleseminar will help you engage your organization’s employees to deliver their best work. Learning Topics: 

  • Six things every manager needs to do well
  • What to look for when gathering employee feedback
  • How to deliver a tough message effectively
  • Stupid ideas about communication
  • How to convey information, field challenges and brainstorm solutions – in under 15 minutes

Andy answers real-world questions on:

  • Companies that are doing a good job at training their managers to be better communicators
  • How to effectively measure whether a manager is communicating well
  • advice and techniques to help managers be more open and forthright in their communications, even when they may fear repercussions from their management
  • Specific advice for how to handle situations in non-public organizations, where laws prevent communications to be less timely than we would like it to be
  • How to focus on listening rather than figuring out what you’re going to say when the other person stops talking
