Can you see how making significant improvements in these behaviors and traits would have a positive impact on ability to be an effective manager or executive?

The Lefkoe Method has provided significant benefits to Duratrack and it’s employees. Behaviors and attitudes that previously made it hard for employees to perform aspects of their work were changed through a quick and simple process. The results were improved communication, a more open attitude toward change and improved work performance.

Personally, I used to believe, “If something I do upsets someone else then I’m a bad person.” Eliminating this belief made it easier for me to provide authentic feedback when coaching employees and it allows me to make decisions based on how the company will be impacted instead of based on whether or not anybody will be unhappy with the decision.

Here is what several managers and executives at Duratrack said about their experience of working with the Lefkoe Institute:

I learned why I procrastinated. Then I stopped procrastinating. This allows me to prioritize and focus my attention on what’s most important instead of always rushing to finish things at the last second. Also, I unlearned the belief, ‘I’m not good enough.’ This resulted in me 1) being able to have authentic conversations with the CEO and occasionally disagree with him and 2) being willing to make bolder suggestions.
I learned to focus on how I feel about myself instead of worrying what others thought about me. This allows me to communicate with others more honestly than I could in the past.
I have developed the mindset that anything is possible. In the past I would often sabotage my efforts because I did not believe my goal could be achieved. Now I can comfortably work on improvement activities and I expect to be successful.
I have better self-esteem. I realize that I don’t need to be perfect and that’s ok.
Realizing that I was not a disappointment to my parents and that I am valuable, allows me to engage more effectively when I interact with others.
I realize there are other possibilities to what currently exists and that things do not have to stay the way they are if I don’t want them to.
