    What's the difference between a leader and a manager? What kinds of managers are there? What are the problems of managing in the real world?

    INTRODUCTION 14 mins
    Leaders and managers are not the same thing - leaders have extra qualities. Leaders need to be good at motivation and managing style. There are different management styles, too: autocratic, democratic, laissez-faire and paternalistic. But what are "Theory X" and "Theory Y" managers? Are "people-oriented" managers better than "task-oriented" managers? And what about useless managers?

    CASE STUDY 14 mins
    Stephen Maynard, boss of manufacturing company Blakeway, has been good at buying up failing companies and turning them round - but what kind of a manager is he? Is he good with people? How does he see himself? How do his colleagues and his employees see him?

    PLUS: Two cases studies of managers in action in very different companies - food company General Mills UK and the Centor insurance company.

    With Rob Cross

  • How your organization's interpersonal networks drive business results.
  • Why leaders attuned to networks are more successful over time.
  • What a high-quality, energy-building network looks like.

    Networks of relationships among employees are increasingly the means by which organizations create value and foster innovation. From ten years of research tracking top-performing leaders at over 60 companies, Professor Cross found that successful leaders manage informal networks to compensate for weaknesses in formal structures, and thus improve collaboration, knowledge-sharing and best practices. In doing so, they are less susceptible to the loss of key contributors whose expertise enables a group to succeed.

    Top -performing leaders analyze and respond to interpersonal networks differently than leaders who fail-in five ways. They identify and adjust staff overloads to minimize bottlenecks. They draw in the "folks on the fringe" of networks by getting newcomers involved with colleagues and reengaging under-connected high performers. They bridge silos to facilitate collaboration across functions, geographies, hierarchy and expertise. They develop surge capacity by ensuring that the best expertise in a network is tapped for new problems and opportunities. And they minimize insularity by coordinating focus across groups on key accounts or business goals.

Marty Bailey had worked in the T-shirt industry for nearly 20 years. It is characteristic of Dov's leadership style that he found Marty Bailey, the best in the business, to oversee operations and then gave him a free hand.

    Featuring: Tim Sanders

    Program Highlights
  • The new value creators: knowledge, networks, and compassion.
  • The downfall of the barracudas and sharks, and their replacement by the nice and smart.
  • How "niceness" creates not just good PR but bottom-line profits.

    Tim Sanders doesn't fit the corporate mold. He looks too young; he dresses "mod" and he preaches compassion, telling today's business leaders why they should become "lovecats." In this presentation, Sanders explains his advocacy of compassion, and helps us understand why genuine kindness and caring make bottom-line sense. Sanders believes that, in a wired world, nice guys finish first.

    Tim Sanders is the author of the New York Times bestseller "Love Is the Killer App: How to Win Business and Influence Friends." Prior to becoming a senior member of the Yahoo! Management team, he developed audio and video broadcast ventures for broadcast.com's business services division. There he was responsible for the Victoria's Secret fashion show webcast, and worked with a variety of clients, including Harvard University, Dell Computers, Intel and Ford Motors.

    With Lloyd Minor

  • The need to hire people who "complement" you-not "compliment" you!
  • Ways you earn the right to make changes: Listen, recalibrate, embrace opportunity.
  • The five hallmarks of an authentic leader.

    Vision is important in a leader, but vision is derivative. Before you can articulate a vision that is meaningful, you have to understand an organization, its people and culture, and the broader landscape in which the organization is functioning. This requires asking questions, and learning which questions lead to the right answers. And it requires developing empathy so you can avoid the "attribution error," understand opposing points of view, and discover where opportunities for change occur.

    The worst mistake you can make as a leader is to surround yourself with people who are exactly like you. Authentic leaders build diverse teams, balancing their own weaknesses with others' strengths. They empower their teams to tackle problems together and execute solutions, creating a whole that is greater than the parts. They model the hard work and follow-through they expect from their subordinates. They prepare for transitions, aware that what brought success in the past may not move them forward into new realities. They meet challenges with the drive to discover new oceans-and the courage to lose sight of the shore.

    Flight of the Buffalo - the all-time classic on empowerment

    This classic video focuses on soaring to excellence by learning to let employees lead. Practical, hands-on, and inspirational, this video shows how the manager's job is to inspire and empower employees to achieve high levels of employee performance and productivity.

    Management consultants James A. Belasco & Ralph C. Stayer present their new paradigm for leaders in the 90's in Flight of the Buffalo, a practical, hands-on half-hour video based on their popular business book of the same name (from Warner). Says Jim Belasco: "Every month, they would bring me their problems and I would spend the rest of the month solving their problems...it turned out that they (employees) were world-class problem finders...not problem solvers. It was crazy."

    The video shows how the Belasco and Stayer principles are applied at Owens & Minor, Furon Company and the U.S. Naval Supply Depot in San Diego to achieve extraordinary performance, quantum quality improvement, and high levels of employee performance and productivity.

    Flight of the Buffalo Training Points:

  • Today's competitive environment requires a new leadership paradigm.
  • Learn how a variety of organizations have achieved outstanding results by letting their employees lead.
  • Understand the importance of focusing on great performance for customers.
  • Learn why every employee should be in line of sight contact with customers.
  • Learn that the manager's job is to inspire and empower employees.
  • Learn how top managers are setting direction for their organizations.
  • See how managers are getting employees to own the responsibility for their actions and productivity.
  • See what kinds of extraordinary results managers get when employees solve their own problems

    With Isaac Getz

  • How to create an environment where employees self-motivate.
  • Why you should embrace human nature rather than fight it.
  • Getting employees to own your vision of a freedom-based company.

    When employees have the freedom and ability to act in the best interests of the company, performance improves. But does more freedom mean even better performance? Dr. Getz shares examples of phenomenal business results from companies whose leaders built total freedom-of-initiative organizations. These leaders understand that three universal human needs-intrinsic equality, opportunity for growth, and self-direction-must be met for all employees. To nurture and sustain the freedom culture, these leaders share their vision of the company so that employees can "own" it.

    Among his examples: the president of Finland's successful cleaning services company, SOL, ensures intrinsic equality by having employees determine the office space design, furnishings, company logo, work schedules, job titles and job responsibilities. Insurance leader USAA provides growth opportunities for 21,000 employees through robust onsite training and support for college courses or business degrees. And manufacturing leader W.L. Gore champions self-direction in a unique and innovative culture built on individualized job responsibilities and fluid, situational leadership.

    With Richard Edelman

  • 16 attributes that build trust, starting with: "Run a good operation."
  • Why you need to address the macro situation, not just the new product or factory.
  • Peer-to-peer influence-why your employees are more trusted than your CEO.

    Edelman's annual "Trust Barometer" surveys opinion elites and mass populations across 27 nations, including both developing and developed countries. The latest statistics show a flat-lining trust in business along with more calls for regulation-in spite of steadily dropping confidence in government officials and their ability to get this done.

    These trends should be a wake-up call for every business. As Richard Edelman explains, you need to stop worrying about competitors and start worrying about the Public-your biggest barrier to acceptance of new products. This requires listening to customers and communities, adopting the mantra of shared value, explaining "how" and "why" instead of just "what," and showing how you will meet societal expectations of being a force for good in the world.
