What you will learn

Completed Staff Work: A Habit of Excellence

Virtues are formed in man by his doing the actions - Aristotle

"Completed Staff Work" — providing a recommendation to the manager — where nothing needs to be added.  It is a finished product where the leader needs only to make a decision.

Who:

Individual contributors who assist the principals in an organization and who are looking to increase their value.  Promotion into leadership is learned through follower-ship demonstrated in Completed Staff Work.

What:

The seminars will cover the art and science and practice of providing advice to the decision maker.  The staffer will learn the steps in Completed Staff Work: the presentation of a path to solve a problem.  At the conclusion the attendee will learn how to provide well thought-out support to the leader to accomplish organizational goals.

Why:

Leaders today have an overload of information and options.  Good staff can act as a filter to separate the valuable ‘signal’ from the distracting ‘noise.’  Managers need mature researchers to gather, analyze and consider options then to make a signature-ready recommendation.  Leaders do not have time to do these tasks.  This takes training.

However, quality instruction for staff is beyond the budgets of most not-for-profits.  We are hosting this seminar to help sister organizations become more effective in the execution of their respective goals.

How:

Managers will learn to lead their followers — and followers will learn to lead their managers.
