Webinar: Managing People to Perform

May 6, 2020 @ 11:30 am - 1:00 pm ADT

During these uncertain times many organizations are adapting to the reality of working from home. This is a big adjustment for many businesses, especially for the managers who have to ensure these remote teams continue to thrive in the brave new world.

To achieve this, managers must know their people on a DNA level. What drives them? What behavioural traits influence how they work? What do they need to be just as successful at home?

The Predictive Index Behavioural Assessment allows managers to get an in-depth understanding of their people’s four main drives – dominanceextraversionpatience and formality. From this, they can learn who prefers email over phone calls, who likes to lead the group and who wants to be part of it, who will thrive in the details, and more. Understanding these drives and behaviours will affect how the remote team is structured to support the same success the team is used to achieving.  

Please note: All registered participants will receive a free behavioural assessment to see what drives them. The link to this assessment will be in your confirmation email. Please complete the assessment prior to the webinar. 

This 90-minute session gives you the opportunity to learn about the four factors, and will train managers to translate behavioural reports into action plans. All attendees receive a free behavioural assessment to see what drives them. Your reports will be provided to you prior to the session.  

Managers will walk away from this session with:

  • A detailed read-back of their work style, drives, needs, and strengths, backed by over 60 years of science and 500 validity studies, facilitated by a trained Predictive Index Consultant.
  • A tangible understanding of the science behind their workplace behaviour, how that affects their management style, and how to work with the other behaviours in their office.
  • Roundtable discussions with a seasoned consultant on the modern workplace, strategies for inspiring employees to success, and actionable insights around modern management.
