FranklinCovey Leadership Class
Just about anyone can get quick-sprint results for a quarter or two. But it takes an exceptional manager to unleash the potential of the team and “write a new story” of consistent, enduring success. The “Industrial Age” approach to management focused on controlling employee behavior. In contrast, today’s “Knowledge Worker Age” demands a different tack—one that unleashes the full potential of team members and frees them to make their best contribution.
FranklinCovey’s The 7 Habits for Managers® workshop focuses on the fundamentals of leading the modern, mobile knowledge worker. Both new and experienced managers acquire a set of tools to help them meet today’s management challenges, including conflict resolution, prioritization, performance management, accountability and trust, execution, collaboration, and team and employee development.
