Total Management 2 Workshop

Learn how to create and sustain a vibrant culture, attract the right people and maximize the resources you already have with management principles developed over three decades.

  • Lead and manage your business better, personally and through others
  • Discover what a fully-developed, high-performing business looks like, and create a roadmap to get there
  • Learn the three components of an effective culture
  • Explore a system for creating and implementing a strong culture for the long-term success of any business
  • Implement a clear and practical system of effective people management – the human equation – for hiring, developing and position succession planning

The success of Total Management 1 and growth of Spader Business Management led Duane Spader to not only continue his exploration of the financial equation, but to question the people side of the business equation, as well. In 2008, after consulting with Dr. Michael O’Connor, Spader launched Total Management 2 (TM2), a comprehensive course that teaches participants how to develop a strong, growing culture and a high-performance staff.

The Total Business Success™ Model leverages the proven Managing by Values® system, the powerful new PRO-daptive® Total Leadership and Management model, and dozens of people-related management principles developed by Dr. O’Connor.
