"...we can meet in the middle and walk the rest of the way together."
From top management to shop floors, all people share the same basic need to be heard, understood, and appreciated. The destructive polarization of the hidden emotion "us vs. them" all too frequently results from the failure to realize our human interdependence and ability to find the common ground. We've learned that understanding and empathy -- the cornerstones of trust-based, successful organizational cultures -- lead to improved relationships between employees and managers. And, at work as in life, improved relationships lead to greater success.
Walk Awhile in My Shoes is a two-part workshop:
Part One: 20 Minute video which addresses the subjects of Change, Recognition and How You Perceive Me, Performance Problems, No Win Situations, The Joys of the Job, The Future, and What I Ask of You.
Part Two: Workshop Experience structured by the activity-based Leader's Guide which introduces the Seven Keys to Meeting in the Middle.
Named by HRD Executive Magazine as an award-winning video.
A Trainer's Toolchest release. Produced by Advanced American Communications, Inc.
