Behavioral Styles & Management — Program
Open your eyes. Manage Better
Each of us has a dominant style that influences the way we work and perform at our best. By learning to understand the behavioral profiles and preferences of your people, as well as your own, you as a manager can build stronger and closer work relationships, and boost the commitment and performance of those on your team.
Management can be ambiguous. There are countless different concepts on what is essential in management. Very few people fully realize the demands of a managerʼs role. There is no true focus on management, because everyoneʼs so busy with the challenges of everyday operations, that there is very little time and energy left for real management.
Management is the process of achieving organizational goals and objectives through the efforts and contributions of people.
Management uses the functions of planning, organizing, leading, and controlling to accomplish organizational goals. Managers use principles of management to guide, direct, or oversee the work and performance of others. Management is a process – a movement from one place to another, more desirable destination. It is obvious that management is results-oriented and inseparably connected with change.
The most effective managers excel at influencing others, relying on more than their positional power or authority. This can be only achieved if you know and take into consideration the behavioral styles, needs, and preferences of your people. As you learn about your own behavioral style and the styles of others, you will be able to understand why people react differently in the similar situations. These insights are extremely useful and powerful to individuals and teams. The success of a team depends on mutual cooperation and support. As a manager, in charge of your team, you must know yourself, understand each individual on your team, and manage effectively the dynamics of the different styles of your people. After all, it is your job to develop strategies for bridging the differences and help people relate to each other comfortably and effectively.
Each individual has a dominant style that influences the way they think, feel, behave and perform. We will explore Drivers, Expressives, Amiable and Analytical and learn the ʻsecretsʼ of each.
