It’s not unusual for a technically strong actuary to find themselves promoted to a manager (or higher) level, only to find that it is a struggle to find the best ways to communicate effectively with employees who until recently were peers. Discovering ways to motivate them to perform with excellence is a challenge for most leaders, let alone the recently anointed. Instead of allowing yourself to become a living, breathing example of the Peter Principle, you can learn how to effectively engage with your team to get them to not only work toward the goals you set, but also get the most out of their talents and achieve outstanding results.

This webinar will help current managers, and if you are not yet a manager, this session will help you apply these skills to better relate to and influence your manager. It will also feature a practice coaching demonstration that will immediately help you to become a better leader for your team members.

Learning Objectives:
  • Learn four stages of the developmental cycle and how you must manage each of these stages differently
  • Recognize the four root causes of performance problems and their associated remedies
  • Become familiar with using a coaching management style to produce outstanding results
  • Learn the fundamental skills of masterful coaching with a coaching tool that you can apply to enhance employee development in your current position
  • Discover and practice a simple, but powerful coaching model that you can use immediately
  • Learn the key mistakes managers make when attempting to motivate their employees, and alternative methods that will garner positive results
  • Learn to communicate in a way that gets your employees to become more self–aware, and to take ownership for their results

Who Should Attend This Webinar:

This session is designed for actuaries in a leadership position who want to become better managers, or actuaries who aspire to manage and want to be a standout rising star in their organization by understanding the metrics and expectations of today’s actuarial managers.

The Six Dimensions of a Leader
Guest blog by David C. Miller

As a leader, you must walk the talk and model the way. Your words will fall on deaf ears if people don’t see you living out the values you talk about. A recent survey done by one of my corporate clients revealed that lowest area of employee satisfaction was that “our senior management does not reflect our core values."
