Overview

 

Congratulations on Your Promotion!

But there's a catch: instead of spending the majority of your time doing the job you love—a job you're still expected to get done, by the way—you're now also a manager.

You weren't trained for this. Nobody prepared you for having to deal with emotions and conflicts and personalities, all while trying to meet ever-greater goals and more pressing deadlines.

Not exactly what you had in mind … is it?

Drawing on the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator®, Devora Zack explains that personality-wise and management-wise, we're either thinkers or feelers. Basically, thinkers lead with their heads and feelers lead with their hearts. Almost nobody's 100% thinker or feeler, yet most of us lean one way or the other.

Working with—rather than fighting against—your strengths is key to understanding not only how you make decisions and manage but also how people react to your decisions and respond to you.

Join us as we explore how this way of seeing yourself and others makes managing less of a stumble in the dark and more of a walk in the park.

What You Will Learn

  • How to find your best management style
  • How to adapt to your employees’ personalities
  • Why making employees feel good isn’t in their best interest
  • The importance of treating others how THEY want to be treated

While attending this program is FREE, reservations are required.
