On March 14, 2014, we welcomed Phillip B. Wilson as he presented on the topic of Approachable Leadership.
The CFO walks into your office and asks the dreaded question: "What's the return on all this 'soft skills' stuff?" You dread it because the relationship between good supervision and business results is hard to prove. That's because most people come at it from the wrong direction, focusing on employee satisfaction as a driver of performance. This presentation explains why this traditional approach causes frustration and fails to deliver results. Learn instead what the most important recent research explains about why some first level leaders succeed while others fail. Discover how approachability acts as the foundation to a high performance workplace and learn three simple questions that, almost magically, transform supervisors into approachable leaders. Competencies covered during this presentation will include, Coaching, Performance Improvement, Interpersonal Skills, Personal Skills, and Business Skills.
