If your managers are telling you they are “too busy” to develop their people, don’t miss this webcast. Jamie Millard and Frank Satterthwaite, authors of Becoming a Can-Do Leader: A Guide for the Busy Manager, will discuss how you can change the mindset of your busy managers to become your willing and able partners in workforce development. After this webcast you’ll be able to get your “too busy” managers to:

  • Embrace a can-do mind shift that makes leading and doing mutually reinforcing activities.
  • Use “multi-impacting” strategies that enable them to find the time to develop their people.
  • Think TPL and check VITALS in ways that enable them to develop their people, whether they are leading or doing.
  • Unleash their can-do spirit as they become your fully engaged partners in workforce development.
