Mike’s Most Popular Leadership Management Programs:

Leadership Dexterity: The Art and Science of Leadership

Is Leadership an Art or is it a Science? Business school professors will say it is a science, seasoned leaders will argue it is an art. No matter which side of the argument you are on – most people will concede it is a little of both. Mike Hourigan’s program looks at some the issues in between: what gets people promoted and what employees want. Mike Hourigan discusses some of the gray areas of management such as how to motivate people without spending money, the difference between coaching and managing, and how to praise someone to get repeated behavior and not feel like a wimp. He will also address how to stop people from plopping at your desk, how to understand the 3d’s of employee perception, and how to get people to do the job because they want to do it. You will leave with management tools you can implement immediately.

Teamwork Is More Than Just T-Shirts:
How to Inspire Commitment, Teamwork, and Cooperation

Simply giving out team hats and shirts does not make a team gel – but having the right management and communication skills do. All too often people think throwing a bunch of people together and calling them a team will get better results. Usually what happens is the dedicated, hard workers end up doing more work and the slackers get to do less. Mike Hourigan’s program will look at the real issues of developing a winning team. Issues addressed include: what to do with people who do not want to be team players; finding individual strengths and maximizing them for best results; understanding why it seems impossible to get along with certain people and how to communicate with them; how to deal with the “know it all, back stabbers”; and dealing with another time waster – meetings. You will learn problem-solving methods to optimize team effectiveness and get the tools you need to achieve superior results with your teams.

Here are some of the things you will take away from this team building training program:
