The 6 Critical Practices for Leading a Team
FranklinCovey® and ATD New Orleans are excited to offer a unique, one-time experience for leaders. The 6 Critical Practices for Leading a Team training, based on the book Everyone Deserves A Good Manager, will be held in New Orleans on February 4th and 5th, 2020. It will be led by co-author Victoria Roos-Olsson. The book is a current Wall Street Journal best-seller. This training, 6 Critical Practices for Leading a Team, will equip leaders with tools and strategies to become a manager who leads an engaged, high-performing team. There will also be an optional certification offered on Feb 5. The sessions will take place from 9am – 4pm.
Many organizations underinvest in the development of their first-level leaders, not realizing how important and critical they are to the business results. First-level leaders have a direct influence on customer experience, innovation and employee loyalty. They are, in fact, the carriers and creators of your entire culture. It is business critical to give your unit leaders the mindset, skillset, and toolset they need in order to succeed.
The first day of this hands-on training will be a one-day work session. You will receive the participant’s guide with your registration of $149. (The regular cost for a participant kit is $230).
The second day is optional and available for those who would like to have the opportunity to facilitate and implement The 6 Critical Practices to leaders within their organization. This is a VIP day for individuals who are responsible for developing and coaching managers (Manager, HR, or L&D) within their organization.

February 5th: For individuals who want to obtain certification.
$149 per day and guides are included.

The Challenge For First-Level Leaders
First-level leaders make a significant impact on every metric in your business: employee productivity and engagement, customer satisfaction and loyalty, innovation, and financial performance. They are the creators and carriers of culture for their teams and directly influence whether top talent stays or leaves. They are frequently responsible for the quality of the customer experience, and first-level leaders and their teams are the biggest source of product and process innovation. Your first-level leaders are the “Difference-Makers” in your business.
