What skills to develop to best hold your role as a manager or leader? What tools to rely on? What subjects to put into practice?
Changing habits while maintaining your energy
Relying on habits enables us to save our energy. Yet, it happens that these habits are no longer suited to a situation or needs that have changed. How can we evolve them?
We all have a natural preference for what is familiar to us. Yet, to adapt to circumstances, companies and their staff must constantly reinvent themselves, which requires that they get out of their usual thinking patterns. How can you nurture this healthy habit?
Dealing with a “difficult” boss
What can you do when faced with a “difficult” boss? Rather than enduring him/her, you should rather seek to modify your relationship with him/her. By understanding the underlying triggers behind your hierarchical superior’s stance, how can you influence his/her attitude and behaviors?
Sharpening our self-awareness
Self-awareness is a determining factor in professional success. It is also a complex and intimate topic. How can we develop the means to function with a better understanding of ourselves?
Networking: a competency that needs developing
A good network is a recognized factor of professional success. To develop it, an approach that is methodical and targeted is more productive than one that is empirical. How can you build a useful network without incommensurate effort?
A more powerful memory
Having a good memory is an undeniable advantage; it helps reinforce influence, and attract credibility and respect. Luckily, memory is not an innate capability: with some technique, you can train it. How can you develop your memory?
Do you make a good impression?
We do not all have the same innate level of charisma. Yet, we can identify the factors that influence the perception others have of us. How can we take advantage of this to ensure we make a good impression?
Managing emotions during a negotiation
Emotions play a major role in the course of a negotiation. How can we learn from recent research in behavioral psychology and neuroscience to take advantage of these emotions, rather than suffering from them?
Gaining in eloquence
Presenting ideas verbally is never an easy task. Beyond solid arguments, speaking the right way is necessary to catch the attention of an audience, and push them to take action. How can you maximize the impact of your spoken message?
Contradictions, a source of innovation?
Great leaders are able to surmount apparent contradictions to devise original solutions that bridge the two initial options. How can you draw inspiration from their example to turn dilemmas into a source of creativity?
