Aligning Expectations
The Missing Link to Effective Leadership

Hours: 8
Tuition: $149

Program Information:

Have you ever recruited, interviewed, and hired/promoted a person only to wonder six months later what happened to that motivated individual and why you are stuck with a person who does just enough not to get fired?  A missing step in the effective on-boarding process of a new hire/promotion is the alignment of expectations.  When a misalignment occurs, whether actual or perceived, frustration quickly develops and performance declines.  In order to reduce the frustration and increase productivity it is essential that employees at every level have an understanding of what is expected of them from the internal/external stakeholders.  Included in this alignment is the clear comprehension of what their new role is and how they will be evaluated.

This workshop will provide the participants with applicable strategies and tools that can be implemented immediately into the workplace.  Best practices will be provided from both the public and private sector to assist the participants in developing an organizational specific process.

Topics Include:
At the end of this program the participant will be able to:

  • Define effective supervision

  • Create strategies to integrate organizational expectations into shift/department operations

  • Develop strategies to communicate expectations both internally and externally

  • Identify and assess causal factors when misalignment occurs
