One of the top complaints by team members is that their managers and leaders do not understand them. Team members often feel like they are not heard and that their opinion does not count.

On the other hand, managers and leaders often feel their team members are unreasonable and unwilling to do what they are supposed to.

When you understand the science of behavior and the patterns different people use to make decisions and communicate with each other, you gain the ability to unlock your team’s potential. By learning how to identify your own decision and communication style preferences and the preferences of your team members, you’ll learn to predict behaviors and outcomes.

Understanding style preferences will be your key to leverage your strengths, identify  the strengths of your team members, and unlock your team’s potential.

This course is the second module of the Creating Viral Teams Training Series: Unleashing Viral Leadership

Many individuals are placed in positions of leadership in part thanks to their intrinsic motivation. But when they begin to manage teams, they quickly realize that not everyone is as self-motivated as they are. 

Without the right information and strategy, motivating team members becomes an exercise of trial and error. This approach often leads to frustration on the side of the leader as well as the team member. 

The Motivation and Influence module describes how leaders can influence teams and individuals by applying what we know about human motivation theory and interaction style preferences.

This course is the third module of the Creating Viral Teams Training Series: Unleashing Viral Leadership.

You may have experienced one of these two kinds of teams: 

The Lost In The Desert Team: The old adage says "If you aim at nothing, you'll seldom miss." Lack of a clear focus and direction leads to poor performance and waste. People feel lost, lack engagement, and the organization loses money.  

The All About Me Team: Some teams are full of people with strong opinions and focus. However, if everyone in the team has a different focus, our collective strength turns against us. 

The Leadership and Strategic Alignment module shows you and your team how to develop a clear picture of the direction you want them to pursue and align your collective strengths for exponentially increased results.
