understanding necessary to fulfilling their crucial but often
misunderstood role. Topics include the role of the mid-level
manager, developing a positive organizational climate,
streamlining the organizational structure, developing effective
internal and external teams, developing effective organizational

Managing Difficult People
This workshop enables managers to diagnose the causes of
counter-productive behavior in the workforce. Managers learn how
to deal with common types of difficult behavior, including passive
resistance, back-stabbing, procrastination, aggressive adherence
to minimum standards, abuse of sick leave, jumping from task to
task without finishing, and laziness.
Managing Internal Customer Service
This workshop is for people who manage units such as data
processing, purchasing, or telecommunications that provide
services to fellow employees. It shows people how to organize,
measure, and motivate to provide outstanding service to these
internal customers, even though they have a monopoly on their
business. As a result, employees are more productive and more
fulfilled. Topics include the components of superior customer
service, common bottlenecks and pitfalls, measuring performance,
and communication skills.
People who work with others find themselves needing to negotiate
with their coworkers or clients on a variety of issues. Often,
these transactions leave one party feeling he or she has “lost”,
which in turn leads to feelings of resentment and desire for
revenge. Based on the method developed by the Harvard Negotiation
Project, this workshop equips participants to develop win-win
solutions to disputes of all kinds.
Long Distance Supervision
Some supervisors face the difficulty of not being in close
physical proximity to the people they supervise. In such
situations, unique supervisory problems tend to occur, such as
people identifying more with the client than the organization,
people pursuing their own agendas, and people operating in
ignorance of decisions due to lack of communication. In this
workshop participants learn techniques in long-distance
communication, commitment-building, and control strategies, to
solve these and other problems.
The Management Tripod
In this seminar, participants learn to manage more effectively
by defining responsibility, authority, and accountability for each
person they supervise. These three aspects of work are a tripod
upon which worker productivity and morale rest. Without any of
these aspects, managers have to struggle daily to overcome the
destabilizing effects of a missing leg of the tripod.
