Why it Works

> Poor performance and difficult people are usually related to problems with the system.

This can mean that you don't have, or are not utilizing the performance management tools legally at your disposal, as well as they can be utilized. This is the foundation. I spent the 1st 10 years of my career in London managing these tools for managers of difficult/toxic people and I can tell you, they work!

> Team member respond to their environment and you as the manager are one of the most important parts of that environment.

On this course I will show you how I help executives to stay in a golden zone you probably never knew existed, helping you to manage, and even harness your stress and to be a much happier manager.

> Every team member is an individual, some are high performers, some lower, some are difficult, some outright toxic.

As such we need to apply tactics and techniques that allow you to manage each person as an individual. You will master the Personal Canvas Coaching technique I developed for one global market leader which increased the revenue of one sales team by a whopping 50% in just 6 months (during a recession too). I even pay a coach to use it on me every week!
