Exercises for the delegates to learn new skills

Professional Development Online Course - Day Two - PM

Positive attitude and how it affects your final results

Becoming a good leader and manger requires that you are able to direct the focus of your mind, so that you can create the optimum emotional responses appropriate to the circumstance that face you.

Emotional management requires also that you

  • Don't succumb to undue pessimism or fear
  • Don't overdose on fretting over things over which you have no control
  • Fix your mind onto the present moment and onto your goals - look forwards

The self-fulfilling prophecy

Smart Purpose, Plan, Action, Feedback, Change

How your inner thoughts will affect your outer circumstances

How to sustain a positive attitude

  1. Control your mind
  2. Control your conversation
  3. Control their conversation

How to create more energy

Energy is the capacity to do your work
Some people don't have sufficient energy.
How to generate more energy.

The Thomas EDISON success formula

All successful action can be described by the following five step process:

  1. Purpose: is the goal you want to achieve
  2. Plan: is how you intend to achieve it
  3. Action: is the implementation of the plan
  4. Feedback: is the results of the actions you taken
  5. Change: is the adjustment in the plans, based on the feedback you are getting

The difference between negative feedback and an insult.

Recognise that Negative feedback is part of the success formula.
Negative feedback should NOT be destructive.
Negative feedback should always be constructive

Here are the differences between:

  1. Negative feedback.
  2. Derogatory insult.

In order to inspire others, use the 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

The failure formula

The failure is the opposite of the success formula:

  1. No goals (drifting)
  2. No plan (wing it)
  3. No action (procrastination or laziness)
  4. Ignoring feedback
  5. Refusal to change (stubbornness)

Use the six success formula questions

Here are the success formula questions:

  1. What are your SMART goals for this coming week, (month, year….)?
  2. Where are your “detailed, written plans of action” that describe exactly how you intend to achieve your goals?
  3. What have you been doing lately, in terms of achieving your SMART goals and enacting your plans?
  4. What has been going well for you, lately?
  5. What has not been going so well for you, lately?
  6. In respect of what has not been going well, tell me, what specifically, do you think we need to omit, alter, adapt or change, in our current plan, in order to get things back on track? Please give me your best ideas!

Professional Development Training - Final Summary

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

Actions / Close

The Training Method

The training method follows this 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. All points are supported with full written notes to take away.
  4. Delegates are asked to write down an associated action, for each point made.
    (At the end of the day, we have about twenty such actions, from which the delegates choose six which are the most personally meaningful).

Additional Online Training

Here are some additional short training courses, approximately 90 minutes in duration.
