Four Secrets to Getting Your Employees to Take Initiative…So You Can Get Your Work Done

Four Secrets to Getting Your Employees to Take Initiative…So You Can Get Your Work Done

Since 2009, I’ve worked on a team training thousands of mid-career professionals in public speaking.  Each year we hear comments like, “I’m an introvert, so I don’t think I’ll ever be a strong speaker,” and “I’d love to have charisma and stage presence.”  By the end of the semester, those same students have seen one another improve, often in life-changing ways.  And they’ve learned something foundational — that being an effective speaker isn’t something some people are born with.  They learn it.
The main goal of public speaking is to effectively convey a message to an audience.  That’s it.  Nothing about being loved or funny or charismatic.  I’ve seen super fun speakers miss the mark, and quiet people speak powerfully.  Managing a team, like public speaking, is not something you’re born with; it’s something you learn.  And I believe that in today’s fluid and complex workplace, we often don’t have the same level of training and mentoring people used to have.
In response to the requests I get, I’ve developed “Four Secrets to Getting Your Employees to Take Initiative.”  It’s full of lessons I’ve learned working 1:1 with managers, and with teams and groups.  I hope you find something in it that you can start using right away. Click here to get your copy.
