Managing at the Speed of Change
The dizzying Speed of Change
is both frightening and exhilarating as the world hurdles toward the Twenty-first
Century. Can you cope with the changes, or will you become a dinosaur left by
the way-side? Do you understand the tremendous demographic changes occurring in
society today or do you choose to put your head in the sand, hope they do not
affect you and make do as always? Do you understand why today’s manager must act
to relate to both staff, volunteers, and customers in a radically different way
than managers of the 1980’s? Do you know how to develop the mental edge
so vitally necessary to prosper in the next century? The Speed of Change
is offered in three segments; each can stand as a seminar by itself, or they can
be combined into a one-day program that will provide a springboard for the future.
The new century is upon us… are you ready? Is your staff? Are your members?
101: The Speed of Change: The Demographic
Gain a fantastic understanding of why people do what
they do because of their age and generation. This seminar breaks people into four
generations: those born before 1945, 1945-1960, 1961-1980, and 1981-present. It
delves into what motivates each generation, what are their values, describes their
behaviors and finally tells you how to manage, market and sell to this generation.
You cannot compete effectively in the new century without knowing the demographic
data presented in this seminar.
102: The Speed of Change:
The Mental Edge
Why can’t we get ourselves to do what we know we really
need to do? Why can’t we break old behavioral patterns? This seminar delves into
self-sabotage; why we are our own worst enemy and teaches how to develop self-discipline
and self-motivation so desperately needed as the Speed of Changes forces
us to constantly rethink our positions.
The Mental Edge is a system for learning what it is you need to do to develop
strategies for the new century. Without such knowledge, the Speed of Change
will time warp you into an early retirement.
103: The Speed of Change:
The Management Edge!
seminar brings the demographic edge and the mental edge together and combines
them with new methods of managing and dealing with other people as well as holding
on to time-tested older personnel methods. It explores why coaching behavior is
superior to demanding performance, why team building is not just this decade’s
fad, and illustrates how any person can develop a new management style…IF he/she
want to! A variety of topics can be covered depending on the client’s specification.
Coping with the Speed of Change has never been more important than whey
you try to deal with other people.
