Red Ladder Management Topics


Expect the Unexpected: How to Think on Your Feet Without Getting Knocked Over
Success in business is equal parts inspiration, perspiration, and improvisation. Participants will learn simple improvisation techniques that will help them be more agile, creative and confident in successfully handling the unexpected -- no matter what the business situation. This is an interactive presentation and participants are encouraged to bring both their sense of adventure and their sense of humor.

Goal Setting for Success™
Participants will learn the keys to successfully establishing and completing goals using the SMART method. Through case studies and small group interaction, participants will practice the SMART methodology. Participants will leave with an action plan for achieving several of their own SMART goals.

Parachute Over Your Obstacles: How to Build and Leverage Relationships at Work
This program uses the parachute as a metaphor to help improve team effectiveness by:
  • Fostering openness and trust
  • Provide a neutral and affirming language with which to discuss and leverage differences
  • Underscore the value of diversity
  • Teach team members to value and work with the strengths of others
  • Help increase productivity by aligning an individual’s preferences to particular team tasks
  • Identifying team assets and blind spots
Participants complete the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® (MBTI)* and receive the booklet, Introduction to Type and Teams, by Elizabeth Hirsh, Katherine W. Hirsh, and Sandra Krebs Hirsh. Participants leave this program with a framework in which team members can better understand and manage: communication, team culture, leadership, change, problem solving/ conflict resolution, and stress. They will also leave with an understanding about how they can parachute over any obstacles that arise by leveraging relationships and teamwork.

Time Management for the Time Pressed™
Participants will learn about the psychology of time management, the value of time mapping and the four steps to time management basics. Plus, participants will learn tips on how to improve time management through planning, overcoming procrastination, meeting preparation, managing paperwork, soliciting team support, effective use of email, handling interruptions and more! Participants will be given time to develop their own plan of action and strategies to take back to the office.

Thriving in 24/7™
Participants gain a better understanding of the forces that are changing the ways in which we all work, and they will develop skills that enable them to align their particular talents and interests with the unique opportunities they face. Using interactive exercises to practice and internalize these tactics, participants will start at the core to gain a deeper understanding of their values and history; create their own work and find the intersection of their talents with the needs of their organization; identify their brand to make their strengths, talents, and value known; and build a strong web of inclusion and create meaningful and insightful relationships that go beyond the notion of networking.
