A recent worldwide survey of business executives and managers showed that about three-fourths of organizations are not great at tapping into what those leaders consider to be their greatest strengths.

In this, hour-long Webcast, you’ll learn how every person has 12 cognitive functions called “Executive Skills.” Each of us has two or three that are our strongest and two or three that are our weakest. What’s surprising is that these strengths and weaknesses are not dramatically changeable once we reach adulthood.

The Webcast also covers the groundbreaking Executive Skills Profile featured in the business book SMARTS (Are We Hardwired for Success?) by New York Times best-selling business author Chuck Martin, with Peg Dawson, Ed.D., and Richard Guare, Ph.D.

What You Will Learn

Find out how you can quickly identify each of the 12 Executive Skills in yourself and those you manage. You’ll then learn how to navigate yourself and others into situations that best play to those strengths.

Apply the knowledge you gain here to your business immediately. When you understand how to align skills with tasks, you can increase revenue and drive results by improving:

  • Productivity—accomplish more in less time
  • Quality— increase the likelihood of fewer errors
  • Recruitment—hire the right people for the right job
  • Teamwork—properly match team members with each other
  • Stress—reduce the toll on individuals performing difficult tasks
  • Meetings— put the right people in the right meetings to increase efficiency and accurately predict meeting outcome
