PIVOTING & ALIGNMENT
HOW TO PIVOT YOUR BUSINESS AND HOW TO HELP YOUR PEOPLE PIVOT SUCCESSFULLY
When pandemics hit, and when life is “normal”, business owners and executives have to know when to pivot, when to adjust, and how to “turn on a dime” to stay lean, streamline and strong. Otherwise, the economic changes will crowd your space or push you out of market share. The 2020 Covid-19 crisis put all of us in that position. These videos are designed to help you pivot, adjust your leadership, and help your teams pivot successfully with you.
THE ROADMAP TO ALIGNMENT
The only thing that fosters great leadership and consistent growth is alignment. Everyone performs better when they are on the same page, they are hearing a unified voice from their leaders and everyone is committed to the same goals and incentives. Unfortunately, most companies are not enjoying the performance they need because they are highly unaligned and “stuck” in internal storming. These videos are designed to help you dissect the symptoms of storming and lay out the roadmap and steps to alignment.
BUILDING HIGH PERFORMING TEAMS
The #1 goal of managers is to build, support, and develop long-lasting, consistently high-performance teams in their respective departments. In high-performance teams everyone’s future is bright, everyone can bring the best of themselves to the table, and everyone can collaborate to meet and exceed shared goals. Unfortunately, in corporate America, the average length of team members in any given company is 2-3 years. Managers today are having a difficult time retaining great talent, and having a difficult time create high employee morale and engagement. These videos were designed to help managers identify what makes high teams possible and how to build them.

If you want to build strong and effective managers, this video series is the one you need to watch. Executives and managers are a powerful team when they are aligned and they work in a cohesive manner. But when they are not on the same page, everyone can tell, and productivity and morale suffer. These powerful videos are fun, engaging, yet hard-hitting, to-the-point, and extremely practical. We use movies and movie clips to highlight the skills and tools needed. Executives and managers should watch these together, discuss and apply their own tailored solutions.
GREAT MANAGERS DEVELOP HIGH PERFORMANCE TEAMS
These videos focus on key skills, disciplines and strategies that managers can use to develop high-performing teams and high-performing individuals.
GREAT MANAGERS FOSTER OPEN COMMUNICATION
Open communication is incredibly powerful in teams. With it comes trust, loyalty and innovation. These videos are powerful tools that focus on key elements of great, open communication such as transparency, speaking up, professional disagreements and frank honesty.
GREAT MANAGERS KNOW HOW TO MANAGE PERSONALITY DIFFERENCES
Most of us are good at reading the personality of others, but most of us are not good at knowing what to do to connect better with personalities that differ from us, or that are at odds with us. These videos offer practical steps and tactics to help team members align their personalities better, and collaborate better with each other’s strengths and weaknesses.
GREAT MANAGERS ARE GREAT MENTORS
In order for team members to become high performing employees, they need managers and supervisors who know how to mentor them and provide them with practical coaching. Unfortunately, many companies are assigning mentoring responsibilities to people other than supervisors and managers. But that is counter-productive. It’s like having a coach on a football team who is not involved in the day-to-day coaching of the team. That does not work. What works is when supervisors, managers and executives get involved in mentoring team members to greatness and help them succeed. It’s a team effort. These videos provide challenging and inspiring principles and techniques on how to build strong mentor and mentee relationships.
GREAT MANAGERS MANAGE CONFLICT AND DISAGREEMENTS WELL
Managers live in a tough position. They are in the middle between executives and front liners. They have to speak to both sides effectively, bring people together, while all along advocating for the betterment of others and the good of the projects. In the midst of all this, tensions rise, conflicts ensue, and emotions flare. Managers are human and they many times participate in behavior that is not becoming great leaders. These videos present age-old proven leadership principles of how managers should handle disagreements, conflicts and complaints...and how to be great role models to their teams and everyone else around them.
