Learn How to Drive Results With Talent

It’s easy to become a better leader

Epic leaders are hard to come by, but easy to perform for. Why is that?

We’ve all had that leader. The one who left you an inspirational note that you keep close to you – either in your desk, on your mirror, or in your wallet. The leader who saw you for who you were. They believed in you and connected with you in a deep way. They helped you take the next step in your career and saw in you what no one else did. It was magic.

Or was it? There is no mysticism to this kind of leadership – rather, it’s scientific and predictable. As a leader of others, you too can harness this capability so that your direct reports give you extra discretionary effort, feel purpose in their work, and become highly engaged.

Join the Drive Results With Talent virtual workshop to learn how to use data (aka “workforce analytics”) and science to get more from your people (aka “Talent Optimization”) and make your job easier.

The Enemy

Leadership is rewarding and difficult at times. But it doesn’t have to be hard all the time. Here are three things you can expect less of after this workshop that makes your work life easier.

Aloof Team Members

When you are unaware of your team’s motivations, you may deliver messages that miss the mark. Deliver more messages that resonate with your team.

Sleepless Nights

If you’ve ever spent the night up worrying about a people problem, you’re not alone. But when you have objective data about your people, there will be fewer big hairy questions that nag you – not just during the night, but during the day too!

Lackluster Team Performance

You’re in your role because you’re good at what you do. But when it comes to managing your people, wouldn’t it just be a tad easier if you had a manual for the people on your team? In this workshop, we’ll give you that manual!

Attendee Insights

Want to know what it’s like to attend this workshop? Here are some of the lessons shared by previous attendees.

Biggest takeaway? Knowing what to do with someone’s most important motivator. I get it and know what to do with it.

– HR Director

Don’t push your combo factor onto others. I now know how to adjust so that it feels good for others (even if it’s weird for me).

– Operations Leader

I move too fast for my employee who is struggling. I now know how to slow down.

– Accounting Manager

How I feel about my work directly correlates to how my manager manages me. I think I just have to ask for what I need.

– Director of Sales

Light bulbs were going off all day. This is why that person does that.

– Marketing Manager

We’d be better communicators and get more done if we all took this training class.

– Customer Success Manager

David and DaSjuan were awesome facilitators and kept the training lively and participative. I really loved it and would recommend this tool to all HR staff! The training was executed really well too and had just the right variety. They were very helpful in answering all my questions! Gold star!
