LeaderScripts: How Busy Bosses Can Benefit by Using the Tiny “Magic Words” that Others are Ignoring


Ideal AudienceLeadership Groups, Mid-Level Managers (New or Experienced), Executives, Franchise Owners

Available FormatsKeynote, Breakout Session, Strategic Work Session (Half-day or Full-day)

Program Description:

Funny, engaging, and sharply insightful, LeaderScripts offers proven answers to some of the most difficult challenges faced while leading others. How can you be liked AND respected? How can you motivate others (even with no ability to punish or reward?) How can you guide and help without being seen as a micro-manager? How can you start feeling more like a boss and less like a babysitter?

LeaderScripts are unlikely words, phrases, and templates that provide much more than momentary motivation. They are the building blocks of healthy workplace relationships and team culture. Everything changes when you change your words.


Program Objectives:

After this program, attendees will be able to…

  • Use the magic words of delegation to ensure work gets done, and gets done right.

  • Describe the two simple (but contradictory) rules of leadership and use LeaderScripts to bridge the gap.

  • Deliver negative feedback in a way that creates movement instead of mutiny.

  • Create real motivation within teams without resorting to bribes, threats, or even incentives.

  • Implement an eye-opening method for making smart decisions that cuts meeting times by 75%, destroys groupthink, and increases creative output by 493%.

  • Artfully deal with the frequent “pop-ins” that threaten productivity while still maintaining an open door policy.

  • Implement these leadership and influence strategies starting tomorrow, whether they have an official title or not.
