Introductions

The Six Primary Virtues

How do you get the best from yourself and others?

Answer: Develop these six leadership-management abilities; the ability to:

  1. Set and achieve your goals.
  2. Communicate with more clarity, confidence and persuasiveness.
  3. Properly plan, prioritise, prepare and delegate your work.
  4. Properly manage difficult personalities and conflict situations
  5. Motivate and inspire yourself so that you feel strong and confident even during tough times.
  6. Learn to motivate and inspire others and create a productive work-atmosphere.

Let us take each of these leadership-management abilities in turn:

The first quality of leadership and management is to become a goal focused individual

  1. Goal focus is the one thing that makes the biggest difference.
  2. Perfect the ability to set, communicate and achieve your goals.
  3. Decide how you want to be perceived and act accordingly

Notes and then practice

The second quality of leadership and management is to become a master communicator

  1. To communicate with clarity and enthusiasm
  2. Leadership requires accurate language
  3. You need clear, not vague, definitions of your most important ideas
  4. Clarity is a virtue. Vagueness is a vice
  5. Speak about what you can do, not what you cannot / won't do
  6. Develop the art of asking the right questions

Conflict Management Training

Because other people don't share your views, occasional conflict is inevitable.

How you handle conflict is an all-important question.

You need to know how to do the following

  • Use reason and logic to resolve conflict; not anger or upset
  • Know when to compromise and when not to

Proper conflict management requires that you:-

  1. Always protect their "self-concept"
  2. Tell them precisely what is wrong in non-emotional terms
  3. Give them a way out of the conflict situation
  4. Be objective and specific, not emotional and inflammatory
  5. Distinguish between reasons and excuses and have a different policy for each
  6. Know when to negotiate and when not to

Ten tips for constructive conflict management

Positive mental attitude training and how it affects tangible results

Leadership and management requires that you are able to direct the focus of your mind, so that you create
the optimum emotional responses appropriate to the circumstance that face you.

Emotional management requires that you

  • Don't succumb to undue pessimism and fear
  • Don't overdose on fretting over things that have already happened
  • Fix your mind on the moment and on your goals and - mentally - look forwards

The self-fulfilling prophecy

How your inner thoughts affect your outer circumstances

How to create and sustain a positive mental attitude

  1. Control the content of your mind
  2. Control the content of your conversation
  3. Control the content of their conversation
The Edison Success Formula

How to create more energy

Energy is defined as the capacity to do work

Some people don't have sufficient energy to properly do their work.

How to generate more energy.

The EDISON success formula

All successful action can be described by the following five concepts:

  1. The Purpose: is the goal
  2. The Plan: is what you are going to do about the goal
  3. The Action: is the implementation of the plan
  4. The Feedback: is the results of the actions you take
  5. The Change: is the adjustment in the plans and actions, based on the feedback results you are getting

Learn the difference between feedback information and insult.

Negative feedback is part of the success formula.

But negative feedback should be constructive criticism: NOT destructive insult.

The differences between:

  1. Negative feedback.
  2. Derogatory insult.

In order to inspire others, get them hooked on the above five part success formula.

  1. Know your outcome
  2. Formulate your best plan in writing
  3. Take decisive action
  4. Gather and evaluate the feedback. Both positive and negative
  5. Make progress by continually adapting and evolving

Recognise that the success formula is a continuous process

Failure formula

  1. Indecision or unclear targets
  2. No written plan - wing it
  3. Procrastination - put it off
  4. Become disheartened in the face of set-backs and disappointments
  5. Stand still. Do the same thing this year as you did last year

Leadership Training - Final Summary

How will this management training help you to get the best from yourself and others?

Leadership Management Training Objectives Summary

In summary, our management training focuses on the six essential leadership management skills, namely:

  1. To set and achieve goals.
  2. To communicate clearly.
  3. To manage time and prioritise work.
  4. To manage conflict and handle difficult people.
  5. To create and sustain a positive mental attitude, especially during tough times.
  6. To inspire others and create a positive, productive atmosphere.


The Training Method

The training method follows this general pattern - the training is very interactive and interesting:

  1. The trainer gives a clear explanation of the point in question with specific examples.
  2. Then, the delegates practice by doing an exercise with each other.
  3. The delegates practice by doing exercise with the trainer.
  4. All points are supported with full written notes to take away.
  5. Delegates are asked to write down an associated action, for each point made.
  6. (At the end of the day, we have about twenty such actions, from which the delegates choose six which are the most personally meaningful).

Note: we do not believe in placing people in any situation of embarrassment by demanding that they 'perform' in front of the whole group. So you can relax: come on this course and be at ease; ready to learn new skills!

The course was engaging and relevant to the company scenario. Strength and 'applicability' of content better on second day. The trainer had a clear presentation style. Relaxed and with a good humour.
