Managers still derail.

Managers still derail. They fight, flight and sometimes freeze. This is especially critical in times in which the pressure is high. Managers and companies are interested to identify potential derailment and do something about it before it has significant consequences.

Derailing behavior often is very situation specific. Therefore, it can be tricky to identify underlying risk factors in a coaching process or leadership development program. As a result, managers sometimes have difficulties implementing insights into their daily routines in a way that really makes a difference.
In the webinar, we will present and discuss three elements of making derailment for managers less likely: How to
a) assess personality-based derailment tendencies

b) debrief tendencies as situation-specific as possible
c) address underlying dogmas, in a way, that makes development less resource-intensive.


As an example, we will use HOGAN, the global premium personality assessments, and provide
numerous examples from our work with executives and their teams.
