THE LEADERSHIP CRISIS - Why Should Leaders Care About Improving Their Thinking?

Leadership practices are not keeping up with the increasing demands of organizational life.  The challenges facing leaders and organizations today are unprecedented.   Most of the tools of modern management were created before the 1920’s.  The legacy of which today is found in the standard practices of leaders and managers working to improve performance using techniques that are largely ineffective at helping others.  

The result is an increasing gap between the way employees are being managed at work, and the way they want to be managed.  The common factors involved in sparking high performance behavior has led many managers to conclude human nature cannot change, “you can’t teach an old dog new tricks.” 

Leaders can maximize their effectiveness by helping others to think for themselves, by defining solutions rather than problems, and enabling people to have their own insights.  The objective of this workshop is to rethink performance management – how we manage performance today and the need to rethink it in terms of neuroscience and how the brain works.  

What You Will Learn

This seminar will address the broad range of factors that contribute to high performing leaders and their teams. This includes: changes in the nature of work, increasing education of employees, the needs of generations, the pace of change and what factors enable greater performance. The objective of this workshop is to:

  • Learn how to understand the true drivers of human social behavior which is becoming more urgent in this environment and addresses the status quo.
  • Look at the social factors that have to do with approaching a reward/approach or threat/avoid response in social situations.  This gives us a way to better understand what can be done to positively influence performance.
  • Understand why it’s important for leaders to care about their thinking.
