Improving Managerial Effectiveness with Versatility

Class Number: HR-LOD134
Cost: $100


Inadequate interpersonal skills are the main cause of leadership failure. In this interactive course, participants will receive and review TRACOM’s Improving Managerial Effectiveness with Versatility Concepts Guide which helps managers understand their own behavioral Style, the behavioral Style of their direct reports, and how Styles interact to affect interpersonal relationships and productivity in the workplace. The Concepts Guide takes participants through the steps of understanding, observing, and learning how to deal with human behavior. In the process managers will see how others perceive their behaviors and how both perceptions and behaviors can be adjusted to increase workplace performance.

Participants can learn to identify SOCIAL STYLEs, and learn strategies for working more effectively with direct reports of each Style. In addition, they can learn mechanisms for increasing their effectiveness by enhancing their Versatility with direct reports.

  • Managers will be able to identify the SOCIAL STYLEs of their direct reports.
  • Managers will find out what adjustments to their own behaviors need to be made in order to create more effective relationships with their direct reports.
  • Managers will develop an understanding for how to increase or decrease levels of tension to adjust productivity.
