One of the first principles of change is that change begins within each individual. Although there are some basic steps in the change process, each individual relates differently to the change process. Understanding change, the chaos of change and the adaptation process is an essential element in minimizing the stress level as well as maintaining an acceptable level of productivity. The issue of stress and productivity are, of course, fragile issues of leadership and can be coordinated with change if a leader knows the importance of balancing the needs of the external and internal operations. This seminar focuses on change and provides the following:
- Knowledge of critical emotional issues in the workplace during changing times
- Methods for navigating through the waves of change with openness and creativity
- Critical information for interviewing, hiring, and placement of employees
- Expansion of the unspoken boundaries and rules for success
- The foundation of personal judgments, how those judgments impact the workforce, and how to change them
This 4-day seminar is a sequel to the Management By Virtue I© Seminar. Attendance in this basic seminar is required.
Change in a crucial and necessary part of moving forward into the future. Envisioning the future takes opening into the “mind’s eye” of the future and then, taking a leap of faith that must be followed with commitment of word and action. A Leader’s role in leading the charge forward is at the heart of leadership. Knowing one’s personality program and, then, knowing how to alter that program become keys to the success of one’s term of leadership as well as creating strategies for selection of successors into key positions. Accurate assessment of training needs of the workforce as they move into the future becomes critical in preparing for the future. These are some of the major issues that will be explored in this seminar.

Team Building and Management: The personality’s self-image creates the core philosophy of every leader. It is from the unspoken and, often, unrecognized prescriptions that are held within this thought program that all teams are managed and grown. Having a clear understanding of what this is and how it affects the development and the management of a team is critical to creating a viable and productive team. Recognizing the power and potential of the thoughts that bring forth behavior becomes a key to engaging the potential of all team members. This seminar presents a clear understanding of the key differences in personality programs and how to work successfully with these differences.
Leadership Development: The knowledge, methods, and exercises that are presented in this class provide leadership with invaluable tools of assessing the potential attributes and challenges within themselves and the workforce, in the present and the future. In addition, an understanding is gained in preparing the workforce to meet the future. Methods to decrease the stress levels in order to maintain productivity levels during the journey will be demonstrated.
Staffing Patterns: Because this class identifies the key elements of personality programs and their relationship to the primary functional areas of achievement and how these key elements relate to training for the future, the foundation for building appropriate staffing patterns for the future becomes apparent. This skill becomes important for retention, productivity, reduction of stress, and job satisfaction.
Assessing Training Needs: When the goals of the future can be reduced to areas of skill that are needed for accomplishment, the training needs of a workforce can be easily seen. This class will identify methods of accurately assessing training needs that are essential for the growth and well being of the workforce.
Interviewing, Hiring and Placement Skills: Learning the cycles and patterns of behavior inherent in the personality’s program and knowing how to interview to determine the various personality programs changes the way in which interviewing, hiring and placement are conducted. Just understanding the implications of the personality differences in relation to the self-image changes the basis of decision-making in the entire hiring process. This seminar will expand the Leader’s understanding of the potentials inherent in various personalities and how this relates to the long and short-term goals of the workforce.
Evaluation Process: The evaluation process is particularly slanted to the evaluator’s personality, regardless of the form that is used. This has a tendency to inhibit the growth and development of many individuals in the workforce. The knowledge gained from this class will expand the viewpoint and understanding of the various personalities that are to be evaluated in order to bring forth hidden potential and increased output in the work environment.
