Promise-based Management and Living
Amiel Handelsman Presents: Promise-based Management and Living
This recording is now available on the WebEx service site. Click the link below to play it:
Small changes in how you speak and listen can make a big difference in your leadership and career. Whether you are leading execution of critical projects or navigating the challenges of work/life balance, the ability to make and keep promises—and guide others to do the same—is crucial for success. What is the difference between a fuzzy promise and a solid promise? What are the attributes of an effective request? What are the four legitimate responses to a request? How do you negotiate when you or someone else cannot fulfill a promise on time? Who is responsible for reporting completion, and what happens if they don’t? We’ll use these questions as a guide for exploring the common breakdowns you experience in work and the rest of life—and how to resolve them with skill and power.
