In order to be a truly effective manager, you must be comfortable delegating work and ensuring your employees are accountable for delivery. With a fine line between delegating and "dumping", it is important to follow specific steps that make assignments clear and create a sense of ownership among team members while also maintaining overall control. Effective delegation helps develop individuals and achieve specific organizational outcomes. Learn how to identify who is ready for delegation using a reliable and collaborative process, and become prepared to determine "who will do what, when, and to what standard?" in your day-to-day role.
Many leaders in key positions are becoming eligible for retirement. There is a great sense of urgency to proactively plan to replace a key talent. The expense and risk associated with bringing in candidates from the outside is high. Compounding this problem, the supply of job-ready replacement candidates is often limited.

Your customers reevaluate their purchasing decisions every day, and every customer service interaction may bias them toward staying with your company, or moving away from it. Long-term customer satisfaction is built through serial expressions of helpfulness, respect, and genuine interest. Exceptional service drives customer loyalty and creates clients who will be champions for your organization, while service mishaps and perceived slights may result in a bad customer experience or worse – a lost customer. This course teaches you to become completely responsible for the attitude you convey every time you come into contact with your customer.
Acquiring new customers requires time and effort, but once onboard they create excellent opportunities for cross-selling and up-selling. By asking the right questions and making appropriate suggestions, you can significantly increase their overall purchase level, add revenue to your company’s top-line, and satisfy your client all at the same time. The secret is to uncover your customer’s unarticulated needs, and to offer solutions in a professional and consultative way. In this course you will learn to identify opportunities to delivery more products and services to your customers, and to apply a proven selling process that makes decision-making easy. You will become confident presenting additional buying opportunities and higher-margin alternatives, and your customer will thank you for it.

Cold calling has never been tougher. As soon as the prospect figures out you're a sales person the immediate responses are "no budget," "we're in a purchasing freeze", or "call me in six months if things are any better."But we all know that there is always money available to buy something that provides real value to the prospect. The trick is to get your value proposition in front of the prospect in such a compelling way that you turn off the automatic "no" response.

Employees are open to influence and motivation. "If you tell me what to do, I will do it to protect my job. But if you inspire me to do it, I will do it to the best of my ability." Supervisors who understand this simple truth and know how to apply it are the ones who generate results in today's organizations. Great managers develop high-performance teams that get results because they know how to lead a team, not just manage it. This program will smooth your transition from individual contributor to supervisor to leader. You will learn the basics like delegation, time management, and performance appraisal techniques, and gain insights into the more advanced aspects of leadership needed to inspire and motivate teams.
Dale Carnegie outlined four ways that people evaluate us: what we say, how we say it, what we do, and how we do it. These tenets hold true for any presentation, whether delivered face-to-face or online.

Distractions are the norm; interactive and powerfully simple presentations are the solution.

Join us for this session where you will learn how to break the mold of boring webinars and set the standard for Online Presentations! How to Present Online is part of the Keys To Success Webinar Series.

Let's face it. We don't often think that "performance review" and "motivation" belong in the same sentence. Performance reviews can cause anxiety in the associates being appraised and the manager responsible for conducting them. An effective performance review can be an opportunity for honest, open conversation about positive and negative results. It can inspire and engage people when it is focused on plans for the future. By setting expectations and helping associates to create achievable targets well in advance, then coaching and providing adequate feedback throughout the year, performance management becomes part of the culture rather than a dreaded annual event. People support what they help to create. Very few people are motivated by criticism. In this fast-paced webinar, explore ways to conduct RAVE performance reviews and plan your performance conversations so that staff members feel encouraged, inspired and ready to exceed expectations. Performance Reviews that Motivate is part of the Keys To Success Webinar Series.
