How to Get Others to WILLINGLY Do What Needs to be Done On Time and as Agreed

Do you long for the ability to inspire your team to complete tasks correctly the first time​?
Would you like a way to provide feedback to your team that empowers vs.disempowers?
Would your work be more enjoyable if you and your team laughed more?

In this interactive and humorous program, we will do a deep dive into three critical components specifically designed to generate team energy and full engagement​:
1. Delegation
2. Feedback
3. Laughter at Work

Friday July 20, 2018

8:30 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.

Key Learning Objectives

You will walk away from this fun, energy-filled program with all the information to:

Master the ​Socratic Delegation Process​,​ a practical and critically important tool that enables you to:

1. Empower your team to take ownership of their roles (really!)

2. Ensure tasks are done correctly the first time and on schedule (whaaaaat?) 

3. Uncover why your amazingly clear instructions aren't being carried out correctly and what you can do about it. 

4. Utilize the "Silver Mind Meld" a powerful tool to learn what your team is planning so you can head problems off at the pass and avoid frustrating and costly “do overs.” 


Use Feedback as an Amazing Performance-Enhancing Tool – ​learn ​the deceptively simple Reverse Feedback Process​ and 

5. Encourage team members to self-critique, resulting in significantly fewer confrontations.

6. Further develop the skills and capabilities of your team (and you!) without formal training.

Lighten Up & Lead! - ​Given the level of intensity at which most organizations operate, it is more important than ever to learn and apply the power of humor. We will explore: 

7. Ways to enhance creative problem-solving through humor

8. Ways to easily encourage laughter in your culture further developing your team’s WILLINGNESS to get things done (it’s harder to say no when you’re smiling).


I have had the opportunity to try your delegation technique a couple of times since your presentation and I like the way it works. The first person was a bit surprised and wasn't sure how to address my questions about her plans to best complete the work. After I let her think for a bit, she came up with some awesome, very helpful plans.
