Learn How to Influence Employees

Business leaders in the SouthShore Community have a wonderful opportunity available to them next month. On Aug. 7 and 8, they have the chance to learn how to influence their employees in a way that gets them to do exactly what they want them to do.  Who wouldn’t want that?
Most managers and supervisors will admit that they spend far too much time on personnel issues and fixing things that weren’t done right to begin with.
The Situational Leadership Model was developed by Dr. Paul Hersey and Dr. Ken Blanchard at the Center for Leadership Studies in California.  Both these gentlemen have spent many years studying and writing about management and leadership, and the Situational Leadership Model has been adopted by over 700 corporations both here in the States and in many other countries.  The model has proved to be the most successful leadership style being used today.
On Aug. 7 and 8, Penny Smith will be teaching the model at the Cypress Creek Golf Club in Sun City Center from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.  Smith has been certified by the Center as an instructor and has taught all over the country.
Participants will be provided with all the materials and at the end of the 2-day conference, will be able to immediately put into action what they have learned.  This valuable course is part discussion and part interactive workshop settings that use workplace situations that are very common to all.
“I strongly believe that in business today, leaders have the responsibility of continuing their own lifetime learning in order to keep a competitive edge.  Investing in ourselves as leaders should be a part of our long-term business plan.”
The 2 day course costs as much as $749 at the Center for Leadership Studies.  SouthShore residents can register for this first course for only $299.  All materials will be provided and lunch is included both days.  Seating is limited so call now!
Call Penny at 454-5406 for more information.
