Are you tired from overly dramatic employees who make every mistake or hurdle into a federal case? Or meetings filled with people who just want to gripe about everything they can’t control?

Look out your office door… Is every one of your employees just executing without excuses? Are they fully accountable, passionately driving huge results, without any drama or hassle?

Or, are some of your employees making excuses or finger-pointing, maybe even a bit entitled, and their passion is lacking?

Some organizations have hardwired a drama-free culture. Their employees take ownership, they’re passionate, driven, collaborative, open, and make absolutely no excuses. And after studying hundreds of these companies, we’ve identified the best practices that drive their success and make them such calm grown-ups who do their jobs without the drama.

This 60-minute webinar called “Creating A Drama-Free Workplace” will show you:

  • 8 Question “Accountability Test” so you can diagnose the levels of accountability (and drama) in your organization
  • 4 Conversations that leaders MUST have with employees to eliminate drama and get them to execute without excuses:
    • Candor Conversation
    • Ownership Conversation
    • No Excuses Conversation
    • Planning Conversation
  • 3 mistakes leaders are currently making that are causing employees to feel entitled and encourage drama
  • 6 words that help leaders avoid getting sucked into employee drama and conflicts
  • The 5 Stages of Accountability (Denial, Blame, Excuses, Anxiety & Accountability) and how to navigate them
  • The 1 question you must ask at the end of every meeting to hardwire accountability and avoid drama about missed deadlines or assignments
  • How to use “line of sight” goals to keep your employees aligned, on track and fully accountable (and a 9-minute meeting you should have every morning that reinforces those goals)
  • 5 step Personal Development Plan that forces every employee to take personal responsibility for, and ownership of, their career and the organization’s future
  • Powerful performance management tool called Word Pictures that translates accountability into concrete behaviors for every employee
  • Specific script for giving constructive feedback in a drama-free way that gets employees to take ownership for their own performance and personal improvement
  • How some of your HR processes are inadvertently causing drama, and how 3 simple fixes can turn drama into accountability

I was fortunate enough to participate a four part Leadership IQ e-Learning series presented by Mark Murphy that helped enhance my leadership skills. Each class was informative, pertinent, and helpful to my position at the Firm. I found this course, “The Science of Managing Remote Employees”, equally beneficial. The material is presented in a format that is logical and easy to understand, and more importantly relevant to today’s work environment. The information is backed up with reputable research and examples you can relate to in real life. I look forward to more Leadership IQ e-Learning classes in the future.

Dealing with Bullies and Intimidators was a great session. I was anxious to attend as I work with and for some toxic people. This program has now provided me with the tools to avoid being their target, identify warning signs, and becoming assertive and in some instances protective of myself. I normally would submit for reimbursement for classes but I am treating this as a therapy session and it was well worth the price. I will review all the information until it becomes a natural response for me. It will also be a great reference point for further conversations with both my staff (who are awesome) as well as my colleagues and my superiors with whom some of the struggles come. Thanks for all the insight!
