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?
Dare to express your views
Paradoxically, in a business world branded as tough, managers often have a hard time expressing clearly what must be told. It is because this requires a self-confidence that is not always well established. How can you develop this quality?
Joining the leadership team—what are the stakes?
Being appointed to a senior executive position or entering the executive committee sounds like a consecration. But the transition often proves much more difficult than imagined. How can you prepare for this major change?
Improve your personal productivity
Paradoxically, the productivity of business organizations has decreased over the past few years. Thus, our tendency to confuse being busy with being productive leads us to waste 25 to 40% of our working time. How can we gain back these lost hours?
Co-design: Knowing how to dialogue
In a digital era that forces us to be more agile, open and cooperative, the aptitude for dialogue is an essential condition to innovate and adapt. How can you develop your ability to hold constructive team discussions?
Turn failure into a springboard
Company leaders generally perceive failure as a setback rather than a means to learn and improve. How can you make use of your failures—and help your employees do the same?
Feedback, an uncomfortable but invaluable exercise
Feedback is often an uncomfortable exercise both for those who give it and those who receive it. Yet, it almost always brings useful insights. How can we derive greater benefit from the feedback we receive?
The illusion of objectivity
Reflexive thinking is indispensable to react and make decisions efficiently, but may also distort our perception and ossify our way of thinking. How can we avoid being trapped in our cognitive illusions?
The art of negotiation: A delicate balance
Negotiations are not just power struggles. The most beneficial agreements are obtained by also seeking ways to best respond to the interests of the other party. How can you manage this delicate balance?
Develop charisma and presence
Self-confidence is indispensable to inspiring trust. But it is seriously challenged by the daily life of an organization… How can you be seen as more credible, more authentic and more convincing?
Collaborate… but not too much!
In today’s working environment that favors teamwork, concentrating has become a challenge. It is nonetheless a factor of productivity and well-being. How can you give everyone the possibility to secure periods of real concentration?
