Maximizing Human Performance Learning Objectives

  5. Learn the management tactics that will have the greatest impact upon performance with different personality styles for communication, motivation, coaching, and performance management.
  6. Learn how to calibrate human behavior and precisely match people to job requirements – to see traits and attributes in degrees and in comparison to other people rather than in simplistic black and white terms.
  7. Learn why it is so easy to misread what other people are like in our interactions with them, including interviews, and why interviews are so ineffective at predicting specific job behaviors and overall job performance.
  8. Learn about the Law of Small Differences – how very minor and subtle differences in personality structure produce such significant variations in performance.
  9. Learn about the thin margin that separates workaholics from people with a more balanced lifestyle, about the attributes that control our response to workplace stress, and how such behaviors can be measured, predicted, and managed.

  11. Learn what differentiates talents/abilities and skills, and what people can and cannot change about their work behaviors through coaching and development.

  13. Learn how to quickly identify how people will work together in groups and teams, and to accurately predict what management tactics will produce the best results from the team.
  14. Understand the practical but subtle differences between selling styles that differentiate people with high potential for consultative sales, relationship management, features and benefits selling, promotional sales, technical sales, and retail sales.
  15. Learn about your own style within the broader context of personality, how to maximize your talents and abilities – and your performance – through your decisions and relationships with other people, and how to assume more control over your own career.
