August Book Club Introduction - A Team of Leaders; Empowering Every Member to Take Ownership, Demonstrate Initiative, and Deliver Results
Introduction webinar for August Book Club Intro - A Team of Leaders; Empowering Every Member to Take Ownership, Demonstrate Initiative, and Deliver Results by Paul Gustavson and Stewart Liff
For decades, leaders and managers have been trained to think and act on upon the assumption that employees and customers are rational beings. Motivational, organisational and structural approaches have been developed on the premise that people know what is good for them and that they behave accordingly. Therefore rewards, bonuses, job promotions as well as punishments have been designed to make sure people understand and achieve goals. However, there is strong scientific evidence that this approach is not just irrelevant but dangerous because it does not accept humans as they are: emotional, irrational and primarily focused on their survival. Management styles need to change and modern leaders have to reconsider their approach. This webinar provides both the evidence for the need to change and directions on how this should happen. Prepare for the holistic brain leader!

Closing webinar for May Book Club on Driven by Difference; How Great Companies Fuel Innovation Through Diversity
This webinar discusses the second-in-command as a person of importance not impertinence. Examples from both classic literature, fictional characters that most of us recognize, and current events will be offered as forms of case studies. The second-in-command is very visible in project teams as a person that may want to help, but sometimes is not recognized by the project team lead or manager. Listen as Chris Greco explains the very nature of the second-in-command and how these "followers" are in fact not only necessary, but most often crucial to the success or failure of the team.
