Strategies to Build and Align Your Frontline Leadership Team

How to Get All of Your Operational Leaders on the Same Page
Companies hire VPs, directors, and managers yet provide them with very few expectations or guidance about how to treat your company’s employees. Likewise, newly minted, first-time supervisors often receive some cursory level of leadership training, which often focuses only on compliance and rules rather than on leadership with a heart.
Whatever the case, managers are typically left on their own to figure out how to lead effectively in terms of hiring, developing, and keeping their most talented performers. They likewise receive little proactive training about how to avoid litigation landmines in the workplace, when to escalate their concerns, or how to insulate the company from employment-related liability.
Join Paul Falcone as he shares his best-kept secrets about getting your operational leadership teams on the same page in terms of the culture, ethics, and environment that you want to foster.
This webcast will focus on hard core, in-the-trenches strategies and tactics regarding leadership offense (developing, motivating, and retaining top talent), leadership defense (holding tough conversations, documenting foolproof corrective action, and creating “clean" terminations), and most importantly — leadership wisdom — for all frontline leaders to share.
Paul’s practical approaches to building your company’s frontline leadership muscle apply to companies of all shapes and sizes and will address how to:
- Set leadership expectations clearly from day one in terms of culture, productivity, and ethics
- Identify the best and the brightest talent and hire for organizational compatibility
- Communicate constructively and proactively to build trust and respect
- Create an environment that motivates and engages employees
- Sidestep litigation landmines and insulate the company from liability
It’s about leadership with a heart and helping frontline operational managers develop loyalty, trust, and respect from those they lead.
Top performers thrive in an environment where their supervisors support them and have their backs — It’s time to provide them with a blueprint for how to lead and manage effectively, both by fostering an achievement mentality and shielding the company from liability by avoiding litigation land mines that may lurk at every turn.
Great leaders aren’t simply born — leadership is a muscle that can be strengthened over time.
It’s time to align your leadership teams in terms of your expectations of how they treat their employees, protect the company, and exercise leadership wisdom that gets their teams to deliver 110% because they want to, not because they have to.
