A manager enables people to succeed

Being a manager is an especially sociable profession, in which you guide your team forward by helping them succeed. In addition to expertise, it requires good self-knowledge, awareness, and perception skills. To be able to lead others, you must be able to lead yourself.

According to a global 2019 study by Gallup, only 15 % of employees experience commitment to their organization’s goals. Up to 70 % of the employee experience regarding their role and significance in the organization is affected by the actions of managers.

This experience of importance and commitment can be achieved only by showing genuine interest and consideration to diversity. A manager who thinks like a boss, generalizes, but a manager who thinks like a coach, individualizes.

The role of managers almost always includes daily leadership, but as coaches we often see how no one takes care that these skills are taught and learnt. No one is a natural manager any more than a natural doctor. Each profession – and that’s what being a manager is – requires specific skills, internalizing the role and processes, and practical self-reflection about your actions.

Our Realized® Leadership for Managers training provides you with all the necessary knowledge and methods of daily leadership of different people. You will perceive the importance of appreciating diversity and learn how to enable subordinates to boost their efficiency by best utilizing their strengths.

In Realized® Leadership training, you will learn strong interaction skills and methods to give feedback. You will learn a leadership style that relies on coaching techniques, in which you spar with your subordinates, clear obstacles, and enable their success.

“Being a manager is a profession that requires you to consciously develop yourself. No one is a natural manager any more than a natural doctor.”

3. Toolkit for Everyday Leadership

This leadership training brings results to everyday leadership. The training gives you the tools to ensure that the people in your team can efficiently concentrate on their tasks. We coach you to coach your subordinates so that schedules are met and internal communication works.

The leadership training focuses on constructive interaction and communication skills because, after all, all leadership is interaction. We coach you to use feedback as an everyday leadership tool. This requires patience and discretion.

We also address skillful delegation for efficiency and knowledge management. Almost everyone perceives their workload as very large, which makes prioritizing a key skill. We will learn to differentiate between tasks that require high precision and those that can be accomplished with fewer resources.

Are you aware of your own factors of motivation? They guide your actions, affect your attitudes, and are probably visible in your behavioral patterns. A motivated staff enjoys a healthy, positive attitude and is, according to many studies, more likely to achieve goals and succeed. (Losada & Heaphy, 2004; Meneghel, Saranova & Martínez, 2014; Pentland, 2012; West, Patera & Carsten, 2009.)

5. Change Management

The human aspect in change situations is both the greatest strength and the greatest decelerator. When changes are implemented, the facts are usually provided, but they are not made concrete on the level of tasks and everyday functions. This does not increase awareness of the need to personally learn new abilities or skills, which is a critical factor if changes are to succeed.

The leadership training will provide you with the means to drive, manage, and implement change. We will especially focus on the role of communication in change management: increasing employee involvement, simplifying participation, increasing commitment, and helping employees let go of old working habits and take responsibility of implementing change in their own role and tasks.

We will train you to recognize and defuse negative phenomena in the change process, change traps. These are phenomena that seldom are recognized in the hubbub of change, but which, at their worst, may cause the entire organization to grind to a halt. Often changes are implemented by pushing them through the organization without listening for a response. However, by investing in understanding and defusing these change traps, the change stays on schedule easier and even large changes can be implemented with less adverse effects.

The change management training will also provide you with skills to best use change agents to manage and implement change. Change agents are key persons, motivated to implement the changes on all levels of the organization. Their role in clarifying the facts and details of the change as well as positively affecting the attitudes of people is vital.
