  • Riding the Waves Without Getting Wet: How to Manage Change in Today’s Workplace

    Bad economy. Poor morale. Sweeping changes. How can you keep your head above water while the stormy seas of absurdity churn around you? This program shares strategies for managing change in organizations swirling in the turbulent waters of change. One thing is certain, people are looking to their leaders for direction and leaders are trying to find it before it changes again. Mike Hourigan, the workplace commentator, will show you what to do about change management and how to do it. Whether you are at the crest or in the trough, he will show you how to become change resilient and stay dry. This lively program makes leading change almost as fun as a day at the beach. You will learn how to avoid going under the waves of change and spend more time riding the productive and even fun waves. When you leave the program, you will be able to recognize, predict, and plan for change. You will also be able to teach your mangers how to motivate through change rather than dread it.

  • How to Say “No!” to Stress and Avoid Burnout

    “I don’t get stress I give it!” “I can’t find the app for it on my cell.” “I’m too busy for stress.” We all laugh about it, but we all have it. If you don’t do something about stress, it leads to burnout. This fast-paced program gives you a real and amusing look at what stress is and what it does to you: from memory loss to loss of confidence, as well as losing the ability to perform. All of these can be symptoms of burn out. Let Mike Hourigan, author of the “A Tip A Day On Change and Stress Management” audio program, show you what to do and how to do it. The program is loaded with tons of stress busters and practical solutions. You will leave with a plan to dilute your stress and not burden your loved ones. You will learn the three reasons people are burning out and how ineffective worry is.

  • Leadership Dexterity: The Art and Science of Leadership

    Is Leadership an Art or is it a Science? Business school professors will say it is a science, seasoned leaders will argue it is an art. No matter which side of the argument you are on – most people will concede it is a little of both. Mike Hourigan’s program looks at some the issues in between: what gets people promoted and what employees want. Mike Hourigan discusses some of the gray areas of management such as how to motivate people without spending money, the difference between coaching and managing, and how to praise someone to get repeated behavior and not feel like a wimp. He will also address how to stop people from plopping at your desk, how to understand the 3d’s of employee perception, and how to get people to do the job because they want to do it. You will leave with management tools you can implement immediately.

  • Teamwork Is More Than Just Hats & T-Shirts: How to Inspire Commitment, Teamwork, and Cooperation

    Simply giving out team hats and shirts does not make a team gel – but having the right management and communication skills do. All too often people think throwing a bunch of people together and calling them a team will get better results. Usually what happens is the dedicated, hard workers end up doing more work and the slackers get to do less. Mike Hourigan’s program will look at the real issues of developing a winning team. Issues addressed include: what to do with people who do not want to be team players; finding individual strengths and maximizing them for best results; understanding why it seems impossible to get along with certain people and how to communicate with them; how to deal with the “know it all, back stabbers”; and dealing with another time waster – meetings. You will learn problem-solving methods to optimize team effectiveness and get the tools you need to achieve superior results with your teams.

  • Recruiting, Interviewing and Keeping Great People Today

    Everyone has done it and most people don’t like to admit it: made a bad hiring decision. The consequences of a bad hiring decision can range from hysterical to legal. When it comes to recruiting and interviewing, most people are a little skittish. When it comes to employee retention, most people are a little baffled. Mike Hourigan’s colorful and astute perspectives will help you decide whom to hire, how and where to find them, how to screen them, and how to keep them once you’ve got them. Participants will understand the importance of asking the right interview questions and how to develop these questions; learn how to improve the quality of interview candidates through more innovative recruiting and learn motivational techniques to allow them to keep good employees.
