Communitech Academy: Management B2B (Back to Basics) - Spring 2020

About this Program

Communitech® is here to help guide you through these unprecedented times. Over the course of three sessions, join the Communitech Academy as we share insights from the field of neuroscience and leadership on caring for and supporting your teams, now, and in the future.

People managers are called upon to lead their teams through thick and thin. Let's face it, we're in the thick of it right now and our toolkit may be running thin.

Communitech Academy’s Management B2B (Back to Basics) Series supports people managers in leading their teams and tackling day-to-day challenges. At times of uncertainty, we search to find solid footing. That’s why we’re going back to basics.

Management B2B (Back to Basics) Series - session details

Building Empathy & Trust | Friday, June 12, 2020 | 9:30 - 11:00 a.m. | Zoom

As managers, we often work to develop the “what” of leadership (providing feedback, delegating work and managing performance). The “how” is important too. That’s where trust and empathy come in to play.

In this session we’ll consider the components of trust, how they fit together and the concrete actions we can take to build trust. We’ll also explore the important role that empathy plays in building trust and getting work done particularly in times of challenge.

| Friday, June 19, 2020 | 9:30 - 11:00 a.m. | Zoom

Giving candid, behavioural feedback opens up communication. If you’re doing it right you can help keep your direct report energized so they can make changes for improvement. So let’s get it right.

Learn a feedback model that works and walk through a process that will help you feel prepared to offer feedback with renewed confidence, even when timing or circumstances are less than ideal.

1:1s and Managing Performance
| Friday, June 26, 2020 | 9:30 - 11:00 a.m. | Zoom

Now that you’ve mastered the basics of building a strong working relationship with your staff and teams, let’s focus on the “mechanics” of 1:1’s and managing performance. We’ll share best practices for 1:1s and establishing shared understanding on performance expectations and goals so that your team has clarity and focus, no matter what’s happening in the world around them.

Management B2B is best for:
People managers at all levels of leadership, because the basics of people leadership don’t change with your title.
