Total Management 2 Workshop

Develop a strong, growing culture and a high-performance staff.

A strong culture holds the power to take any business from mediocre to stellar. The breakthrough proprietary Total Business Success™ Model sets the foundation for this management program, developed jointly by Spader Business Management and Dr. Michael O'Connor and the Center for Managing by Values. This program leverages Dr. O'Connor's proven Managing by Values(R) system, the powerful new PRO-daptive(R) Total Leadership and Management model, as well as dozens of people-related management principles developed by Dr. O'Connor over more than three decades of working with businesses. Not only will you learn how to create and sustain a vibrant culture, but you'll also learn how to attract the right people and maximize the resources you already have.

By dissecting a case study company, you'll quickly grasp how to use TM2 to break down the challenges many businesses face in the arenas of culture and people, and how to implement more effective management practices in your company.
