Mastering Challenging Conversations with Coworkers with Confidence
There are conversations with employees that the manager knows in advance will be challenging. This may be because an employee has behaved inappropriately or because an employee has been absent without giving advance notice. Managers often stumble into the harmony trap during these discussions: They are afraid to call criticism by its name and unnecessarily put employees on the spot. In challenging conversations, however, that is exactly what is needed: transparent communication and an open attitude towards challenges. Other managers, on the other hand, find it difficult to remain respectful and keep a cool head in difficult situations. This behavior also prevents constructive discussion and successful conflict resolution.

Constructively and Sustainably Conducting Discussions with Employees 
Performance reviews are a key leadership and human resource development tool. Nevertheless, many managers do not necessarily associate them with positive things, often perceiving them as unpleasant and spasmodic and their counterpart sometimes as unmotivated or nervous. This does not have to be the case. When conducted in an appreciative and goal-oriented manner, employee appraisals offer lasting benefits: They ensure an effective two-way exchange of information and play a key role in shaping the relationship between employees and managers. In this e⁠-⁠training, participants learn about the potential of well-managed employee appraisals. They learn how to best prepare for, conduct and follow up on an appraisal interview – on-site or virtually.

Everyone is unique. Nevertheless, we always see similar personality traits in different people. Type models help us to understand people better as they simplify a complex world. In your role as a manager, you deal with a wide variety of employee types and should know how best to deal with whom. So that all employees in your team can fully use their potential, it is important to address them individually according to their personality or personality type, to understand them, challenge them and develop them. Type-appropriate leadership enables you to do exactly that. You can assess what type of person your counterpart is and then accurately select the strategy from the repertoire of actions to help to understand them in the best possible way. This way, you not only succeed in responding to individual employees in a way that is appropriate to their personality type but also in forming teams in such a way that similarity has a mediating effect and difference has a stimulating effect.

It clarifies the "blind spot" and shows why the "secret" will remain a secret. With the help of the course it is taught that "giving feedback" does not mean "praise" or "criticize".

Konfliktmanagement für Führungskräfte

Conflict Resolution for ManagersConflict Resolution for ManagersConflict Resolution for ManagersConflict Resolution for ManagersConflict Resolution for Managers
For managers, the rule is: intervene as little as possible, but as much as necessary in a conflict involving their own employees. As a starting point, it is important to also recognize hidden conflicts and assess their severity. The theoretical basis for this is provided by Friedrich Glasl's model of the nine stages of conflict escalation. It clearly shows how conflicts can escalate if timely intervention is neglected. For each escalation stage, managers therefore learn various methods of conflict resolution - from the promotion of independent conflict resolution to mediation and arbitration as well as to the intervention of power.

The ability to lead with empathy is considered to be a supreme discipline in leadership. If you succeed in managing your team with appreciation and trust in your daily work, you will be able to win over your employees more easily. Because with empathy, you not only take other people with you – you can also better understand them and put yourself in their shoes. This will create a working atmosphere in which your team will know they are appreciated and therefore will feel more comfortable. This will have a positive effect on every conversation and on your ability to persuade and convince others as a manager. Those who show empathy and attentiveness when dealing with other people can also better assess their attitude and thus avoid negative consequences of misjudgments. But leading with empathy is something that needs to be learned. In this training course, you will learn how to be more perceptive of other people's emotions and understand their motives. By applying this understanding, you will have greater assurance in working out suitable courses of action.
