Best Practices in Management

These workshops are designed for experienced managers who want to learn more about current best management practices and to exchange ideas with their peers in vigorous discussions. New supervisors can also benefit. Each class will address an important topic, with an overview of important books and articles, sharing of experience and opinions, some practice, and a chance to plan to implement best practices in the workplace. Reading the books and articles is optional.

Increasing Emotional Intelligence

For truly effective leaders, emotional intelligence (EQ) is twice as important as IQ, technical skills, and cognitive skills. Learn the five components of emotional intelligence and why good guys finish first. Discover the driving importance of the leader’s emotional behavior on the performance of the organization. Learn to increase the performance of teams. This workshop is inspired by Daniel Goleman’s work on leadership and the biology, psychology, and neuroscience of emotional intelligence. We will practice developing EQ. Reading is optional; however, articles will be provided and an overview presented and discussed in class. You can receive them ahead by e-mailing the instructor at janet.ruprecht@gmail.com. All you need to bring to class is a pen, your experience, and your opinions.

Powerful Conversations

Any conversation has the potential to change a career, an organization, a relationship, or a life. Learn to provoke learning, tackle difficult people and tough challenges, and to enrich personal and professional relationships. Learn social strategies that work – what do people really want? What makes a lasting impression? This workshop is inspired by Susan Scott’s book, Fierce Conversations, and Clifford Nass’ The Man Who Lied to his Laptop. We will practice necessary and tough conversations. You are encouraged, but not required, to read these books before or after class. All you need to bring with you is a pen, your experience, and your opinions.
