‘Having a manager who ignores you is even more detrimental than having a manager who primarily focuses on your weaknesses. Perhaps most surprising is the degree to which having a manager who focuses on your strengths decreases the odds of your being miserable on the job. It appears that the epidemic of active disengagement we see in workplaces every day could be a curable disease…if we can help the people around us develop their strengths’
- Insightful thoughts from a well known management training guru.
If you were to play tennis with your partner, would you like your partner to be superior or inferior to you?
If you want him to be slightly inferior to you, you will get a daily ego boost but you will not learn anything new!
If on the other hand you would like your partner to be a better competitor, you would have a better chance of improving your skill but unless you focus on working on your skills you will soon get demoralized.
What if your partner understands the value of a good playing partner and instead of simply deriving an ego boost would teach you some techniques as well as give you words of encouragement, wouldn’t you love playing with your partner everyday?
Now imagine you are the boss or the manager of a company and are wondering
How would I ever make my team feel motivated and empowered?
How on earth will I get my employees to love me?
How would I ever become a great boss?
I’ve given you the secret to Employee Engagement, Motivation and Delegating responsibilities.
My name is Chetan Pinto and I believe ‘training has the power to change the world’. My experience tells me that a good trainer is one who can assist with both cognitive and emotional/behavioural improvements through simple and incremental positive habit changes. In other words the training shouldn’t be too easy or difficult but incremental or what I like to call the ‘+1 input’.
The training should ideally result in emotional/behavioral and psychological attitude changes through activities carefully designed towards unleashing curiosity and intrinsic motivation for long lasting positive improvements.
I’ve been able to successfully train several teams and individual get better at what they are doing by helping them identify their strengths, relate it with their passion and give them the confidence to actually accomplish the extraordinary things they always believed they were capable of but never really tried for a lack of positive reinforcement!
My training philosophy is essentially about establishing trust by -
Identifying what my trainees actually want to do- their strengths, interests and passion
Understanding their fears and insecurities holding them back from accomplishing their goals.
Designing positive habits that empower trainees to confidently accomplish their goals and also as a guidance system to rely on when they falter.
Some of my strategies include-
80/20 rule- Identifying a few things trainees could do right away to bring about the quickest change in the shortest possible time i.e unlocking empowerment!
Positive Reinforcement- Helping employees cope with the stressful environment by replacing negative behaviors with some positive ones- i.e Cognitive Behaviour Modification.
Helping them be more creative, happy and funny and adopting a more relaxed and positive attitude towards life. i.e. Workplace Delight!
I firmly believe a Google like employee engagement atmosphere is can become a reality in any company with even a small budget if the strategies I’ve suggested are properly implemented.
I can help implement the required changes by way of creating or modifying the L&D/T&D process, impart training or develop courses depending on the requirements of your company.
