Manager Development Services does one thing and one thing only; we specialize in training managers in the "art" of managing people. We teach managers how to inspire their staffs to become vested in the success of the business and take ownership of their positions. With this, employees become Career-Minded instead of Job-Minded, which means they show up at 7:55 instead of 8:05. They leave their baggage at the door and are proactive and self-managing.
With "ownership," staff understand the principles of interconnectedness and social responsibility - they strive to excel. They understand that everything they do either enhances or diminishes them as a person. They understand that each task, no matter how small or seemly insignificant, adds to their skills, talents, and character. In the truest sense, they are working for themselves, refining their most valuable asset - them.
We teach managers the principles of what we call, "Emotional Engagement." Most managers don't want to get into what they consider "that touchy feely stuff." But let's face it; people are human beings - not automatons. And unless a manager learns how to service his or her staff on a “human being” level, “that touchy feely stuff” will undermine his or her department. Success in business is all about relationships. Make raving fans of your staff and they will be willing to go to war for you.
Taken from "Managing from the Heart - A Way of Life," this book guides the manager through the steps to effectively conduct his or her staff like a "finely tuned orchestra." The manager will learn the problems associated with "Starting Up a Department from Scratch," "Inheriting an Established Department," and "Maintaining an Established Department."
"Master Your Destiny" explains how people give away the innate power they are born with and allow others to direct their lives. You will examine the power "self-defeating behaviors" have to cause a person to sabotage the one experience they want most.
You will also explore the power of self-esteem to define and reclaim this power, allowing a person to take back control of his or her destiny.
Inspiring Passion in Your Staff is taken from the books “Managing from the Heart – A Way of Life” and “The Manager as Engineer.” This book focuses on how to inspire passion in those who work for you. A staff that has passion work together - they want to excel – they want to succeed. And they are willing to go to war for their manager.
