Goal Setting & Accountability

Successful leaders and managers take an active role in goal setting and hold their people accountable. But doing so in a supportive way is critical for the members of the team to feel that what they do makes a difference, keep engagement levels high, and ultimately achieve optimal results.

This portion of the seminar will help you instill in your team the importance of individual, team and development goals, and create a culture of high performance. You will learn tips to build employee engagement that drives positive outcomes, and best practices for holding individuals and teams accountable to the agreed upon goals.

Completion of this module will empower participants to:

  • Communicate the importance of individual, team and development goals to achieve strategic objectives
  • Create a culture of performance to deliver excellence
  • Build employee engagement to ensure positive outcomes
  • Hold individuals and teams accountable to realize results

Communicate with Different Personality Styles

Many behavioral psychologists have researched the theory that people’s behavior can be roughly classified in four groups. No one is purely any style, and no style is better or worse than another. Each tendency has strengths and weaknesses. By recognizing our dominant style and developing the ability to identify traits in others, we can change our behaviors to interact with a wide variety of personalities.

This portion of the seminar helps people understand the four dominant personality styles: Driver, Expressor, Amiable and Analytical. Knowing your style is an important element to help reach across barriers and connect with others. You need to identify your own strengths and weaknesses to take control of your actions and feelings. Then you can focus on understanding others and use effective approaches to build collaboration.

Completions of this module will empower participants to:

  • Identify your own personality style and how you react under pressure
  • Modify your behaviors to be able to connect with people of different styles
  • Influence attitudes and behaviors of others
