How Clerks Can Lead Through Influence

Wednesday, Aug 5, 1pm – 3pm ET

Influence is subtle, yet incredibly powerful. You can order someone to do a task, but you cannot order them to do their best. It simply does not work and usually has the opposite effect. You can influence people to do their best by providing a strong, motivating example in addition to positive reinforcement.  Leadership addresses tasks, while influence addresses attitudes and awareness. Influence is the soul of leadership. 

Not everyone is on the same intellectual, maturity, compliance, or motivational level. Different people are motivated by different things, and this must be taken into account if one is to be a great leader. Communications experts consider it critical to tailor your message to your “target audience.” It is the followers that you want to motivate and influence and you cannot do that if you don’t know whom you are trying to motivate or influence. Learn how to be an excellent influencer!

Negotiation Skills to Hold Others Accountable

Wednesday, Aug 19th, 1pm – 3pm

Do you get want you want and need in your day to day business conversations or do you find yourself conceding more often than you wish?  Every conversation is in essence a negotiation.  At its core, understanding and applying negotiation principles help us communicate constructively, create a positive frame of reference, and help open up as many options as possible.  We will learn to create a conversation around designing a complete list of possible options before jumping to what may be premature and insufficient immediate solutions. When people trust each other, they are more likely to communicate accurately their needs, positions, and the facts of the situation.  In contrast, when people do not trust each other, they are more likely to engage in positional bargaining, to use threats, and to commit themselves to tough positions. We will look at how to assess and understand the feelings and attitudes of all parties, and how they may bias our interactions while negotiating.  This course will have a powerful impact on your day to day conversations!

    Performance Management for Clerks

    Thursday, October 1, 1pm - 3pm ET.

    According to the U.S. Office of Personnel Management, performance management consists of five components: “Planning work and setting expectations, continually monitoring performance, developing the capacity to perform, periodically rating performance in a summary fashion, and rewarding.”  Effective management would ensure proper behaviors are being executed, which would in turn produce favorable results.  To this end, we will discuss these topics in the online workshop.

    • Clearly identify the job’s purpose as well as the duties associated with it.
    • Determine goals and how to measure outcomes.
    • Characterize the standard of performance for critical aspects of the position.
    • Discuss employee performance and provide feedback both informally and formally through annual reviews.
    • Keep track of performance records.
    • If necessary, create an improvement plan to better employees’ performance.
