Topics Covered

Supporting Employees

Taking the time to understand how you support your employees makes a difference. Understanding your support actions can provide the insight needed to identify what you can do to ensure each of your employees has a manager who can help them be successful in the short and long-term.

This course provides seven key support actions all managers should take to support their employees. You will review these actions, evaluate your current performance, and select one or two actions you will do more of to strengthen how you support your employees.

By completing this course, you will:

  • Be able to determine how you support your employees

Connecting Work to the Organization

As a manager, it is up to you to lead your team and create the connection between individual work and the organization. Although each of us can get bogged down in the daily complexities of our job, it’s your role to help create the vision for how each person’s work fits with the larger goals and to create the vision for what’s possible in the future.

This course provides a specific process for you to conduct one-to-one conversations with each of your employees. The purpose of this discussion is to re-energize and excite your employees about their work, discuss how they fit within the organization, and to talk about the future opportunities that may be available based on the person’s interests and capabilities.

By completing this course, you will:

  • Be able to connect the work employees do to the organization and to future opportunities

Requirements for Success

It should be a priority for you to find out if your employees have what they need to be successful in their role—and usually the best way to find out this information is to ask. Talk with your employee to learn what he or she needs at work to be successful. Adding a structured process to your discussion is even better, as it provides some guidelines for you and the employee to identify the factors that will really make a difference.

For this course you will meet with your employee. Use the following meeting outline to help guide your discussion. Remember, the purpose of this discussion will be for you to gain a solid understanding of the factors impacting the person’s ability to achieve his or her work goals, deliver high quality work, and experience success in his or her job.

By completing this course, you will:

  • Know how to assess whether employees have what they need to be successful in their role

Using an Employee’s Best Skills and Abilities

As a manager, it is part of your role to capitalize on each person’s talents and capabilities. You need to make sure everyone is performing at his or her best, contributes to the team’s goals, and at the same time makes use of everyone’s individual talents. Yet sometimes a person’s best skills, the ones he or she is great at and loves to do, are not maximized. Although the person may be doing a good job and contributing to the team, not using one’s best skills can eventually lead to disengagement and frustration, since the person’s top talents are frequently not used, if at all.

For this course you will perform an evaluation of each of your employees’ role and job to determine how well each person is able to use his or her best talents. You will then identify opportunities to capitalize on each person’s best skills more often.

By completing this course, you will:

  • Be able to perform a job evaluation to determine if a particular role uses an employee's best skills and abilities

Team Satisfaction

Satisfaction with our job and company is very important. When we have a high level of satisfaction, we tend to be more committed to our work, deliver better results, and enjoy what we do. Not only does this help us individually, it helps our team as well. When a team is made of up individuals who enjoy their work and are satisfied with their jobs, the team enjoys a productive work environment and higher overall team results.

While the factors impacting satisfaction can be different for any one person, there are a few core factors that tend to influence work satisfaction for the majority of people. This course provides a review of these core factors and a process to help you strengthen the ones that will help your team the most.

By completing this course, you will:

  • Be able to help your team evaluate how well the company meets their individual needs

Inform and Inspire Your Team

As a manager it is your job to inspire and energize your team by communicating a clear and compelling vision. When each person understands what the team must achieve and why, a meaningful work situation is created for each team member, which can lead to an increase in personal engagement and performance.

This course will help you create a clear picture of the team’s vision and to excite and inspire team members regarding the team’s purpose.

By completing this course, you will:

  • Know how to inform and inspire your employees regarding the team’s vision

Work-Life Balance for Each Person

As a manager it’s important to understand what work-life balance looks like for each of your employees. While there’s no right or wrong answer, the balance that is best for each person typically considers both job commitments and personal needs. Finding the right balance may be a little tricky, yet a good place to start is by understanding what great work-life balance looks like for each person. Once you know this, you can take the required steps to determine what actions can be implemented to create the best balance possible for every member of the team.

Everyone needs a different level of work-life balance, and what this balance looks like will differ too. There is no right or wrong answer. This course will help you know what great balance looks like for each person. Someone may be able to work really long hours, get an exercise workout in here and there, and be perfectly balanced and energized. While others may need to spend more time meeting personal or family needs to feel balanced.

By completing this course, you will:

  • Know what work-life balance looks like for each person

Appreciating Contribution and Results

Think about the leaders who interact with your team. What leaders directly benefit from your team’s success? What leaders are looking to you and your team to achieve great results? Soliciting recognition from these leaders is a great thing to do. Hearing from leaders within the company can be very meaningful to your team. Since receiving recognition from leaders is not the norm, when we do, it is very rewarding and motivating.

For this course you will ask a company leader to provide feedback to your employee. This course will walk you through the steps to identify the leader, contact the leader, and help you ask the leader to recognize your team or individual employees.

By completing this course, you will:

  • Have asked a leader to thank an individual employee or team for their contribution and results
