Managing Commitments

We’ve been told to manage our time and energy but managing our commitments may be the most effective performance strategy because it focusses on improving capacities to coordinate action.

Seminar participants will learn that they do not operate in a vacuum and that HOW they follow through and don’t follow through has consequences to team and organisation productivity.   Failure to effectively manage commitments also impacts personal reputation and trust.   Seminar participants will learn techniques of how to make powerful requests, how to negotiate commitments, and the impacts of reneging or revoking their commitments on their team, organisation and on their own reputation.


Is this for you?

  1. Do you often find yourself in disagreements about whether or not something was done properly?
  2. Are you frustrated by constantly having to check whether something you asked for has in fact been done?
  3. Do you hate being constantly asked whether you’ve done or are going to do something you agreed?
  4. Do you feel pressured to say yes to all of your bosses requests?
  5. Do you find that your requests are going un-noticed and un-answered?

If you answered yes to one or more of these you will benefit from this seminar.
