HUMANagement is a three day course that is an immersion into the theory and practice of management defined by Jeff Patnaude:

“The manager has two primary areas of management responsibility: Their own behavior and the environment where their people work.”

Utilizing The Judgment Index, The Motive Questionnaire, Assessing Your Managerial Style and The Managerial Climate Survey, essential data is collected weeks prior to the start of the course from the manager’s perspective and five subordinates and serves as a foundation for extraordinary learning and change.

Day One– Managing a High Performance Style

Emotional Intelligence and keen awareness is the single most important factor in contributing toward successful management. Following a process for reviewing EQ – Emotional Quotient, this day continues with the first of many feedback areas, Motive. Each participant discovers how Achievement, Affiliation and Power are primary forces that drive their behavior. This then leads to the discovery of the six primary management styles:

• Situation Specific

• Pace Setting

• Social

• Coercive  

• Styles High Performance Styles

• Directive

• Participative

• Coaching

Again, feedback from the self report and subordinates report help the participant shape their goals forenhancing the High Performance Styles and avoiding the more common Situation Specific Styles.

Day Two – Managing the Unit-Team Climate

There are six dimensions of a high performing work – unit climate that every successful manager must utilize:

Short-Term Dimensions

• Clarity – The degree to which employees understand work goals and job requirements

• Commitment – The level of commitment to goal achievement

Excellence – Setting high standards and commitment for continuous improvement

Long-Term Dimensions

• Responsibility – Feeling responsible for their work and being self-motivated

• Recognition – Employees feeling as if they are recognized and rewarded for doing good work

Teamwork – Employees feeling a part of a team and take pride in their work unit

The manager again receives feedback, this time about his/her work climate- the self-evaluation as well as respondent feedback.

Minimum of 10 participants– maximum of 15

Virtual HUMANagement – The Virtual Six

“The Human element is the most important factor in management theory and practice. Employees don’t leave companies, they leave their managers. Thus the critical importance of the manager knowing their own strengths and developmental opportunities first, and then enhancing those key areas, is a most important factor for keeping an aligned and productive workforce.”
