Organizations expect managers to get results, but long-term performance requires a focus on more than just results. Research indicates that high performance is not sustainable over time unless it is accompanied by a high degree of fulfillment, in addition to a focus on performance—neither performance nor fulfillment exists in a vacuum. To implement strategy and create business results, managers must create an environment of performance with fulfillment. These skills require integrating the inspiration of leadership with the skill of management.
Researched and developed by Wilson Learning, The Leader Manager: Achieving Performance with Fulfillment (TLM) provides leaders with the framework and skills to enable the work unit to achieve Performance with Fulfillment—the combination of high performance and high satisfaction from meaningful work done well. Leaders learn to support their work units in terms of five practices to provide what their people need. During this 2 day workshop, participants will focus on the following key learnings:
Understanding the Challenge
What “Performance with Fulfillment” means and why it matters and how integrating leadership and management through the five practices is essential to creating performance with fulfillment.
How a common understanding of the organization’s vision and strategy impacts engagement and how to ensure that direction is meaningful and motivational.
How to gain support and commitment to goals. How to communicate goals in a way that addresses both performance and fulfillment.
How to apply a simple feedback approach to individuals and the work unit as a group that addresses both performance and fulfillment and how to seek feedback and receive it to model the right behaviors.
How to discover what recognition employees really value, how to overcome the dilemmas of recognition and how to apply recognition to increase performance and satisfaction.
Explore the parameters of effective direct support—what it looks like, how it contributes to performance with fulfillment, and when it is required. Learn and apply an approach for getting support and creating performance with fulfillment with other departments and functions.
Enabling Improved Performance
The Leader Manager (TLM) is enhanced by application activities, post-learning reinforcement, pre- and post-classroom e-mails, and support tools. These tools help ensure that sales leaders can develop skills during the workshop, then fine-tune and apply their newly acquired skills and behaviors back on the job. Involving participants’ managers is also important for successful TLM implementation; manager support tools are provided for that purpose.
