An iPhone application to help you be a better people manager everyday…

Interact is an iPhone application that can help you engage employees more completely in their work and retain top performers longer. If you manage people and are responsible for the performance of a work group, you need Interact to help you respond to each employee in a more personal, individualized way. People seek to be understood for who they are and what they can contribute. Interact gives you a more objective, realistic understanding of each person along with the specific guidance and tactics to develop greater commitment to and engagement with the job. It adds up to higher performing, more satisfied employees who stay longer.

It is costly and disruptive to struggle with disengaged people and to lose talented performers, both of which can undermine your success. As a manager you can control of many of the work factors that can minimize these problems, but your success will depend upon your ability to motivate, manage, and support each employee in a more individualized, personally effective way.

Interact provides guidance on what you can do to individually engage each employee. By completing the OMS Questionnaire (about 5 to 8 minutes) on the iPhone you learn about yourself. You create your personal Interaction Style, which identifies your motivation, your behavioral talents and challenges for managing, and your management style. It’s selfawareness, and all great managers have to have it. View Sample Management Style Report and Graph…

By completing the Interaction Styles Checklist (about 2 minutes) on an employee or team member you are able to look at the world through the eyes of that person, to understand how their motivation, talents, and preferences shape their work expectations and perceptions. Interact gives you valuable insight into the employee’s worldview and creates the strategy and tactics you need to be most responsive to each employee’s workplace expectations . Objectively understanding each employee is what management is all about. View Sample Employee Report and Graph

It all happens on your iPhone! You can review your style any time you want to, maintain and review the styles and management strategies for all your employees at any time, add and delete contacts, and even email the reports on yourself and your employees to any email address.

To be effective as a manager you must understand yourself and your employees – what motivates you, how you behave, how you communicate, what you expect of one-another, and how you differ. To help your employees become more engaged and to retain them longer, you must also know how to use these insights to develop an appropriate management strategy and the day-to-day tactics that will work with each employee. Interact does this for you

The OMS Questionnaire, a brief personality inventory, will generate your Interaction Style graph and several reports to help you understand your motivation, your natural behaviors, your manner of communicating, your management style, and how you can adapt to make your management behaviors more effective.

Using the IS Checklist you can create an Interaction Styles graph and several reports on each of your employees or team members. You will understand each person’s traits, behaviors, motivation, worldview, perceptions and expectations for the work and the work environment, and how you differ in your perceptions and expectations for one-another.

For each employee Interact generates a report that integrates your style with the employee’s to create a strategy with management tactics that will help you respond individually to each person’s motivating needs, allow each person to fully utilize his or her personal talents with the work, and create a work atmosphere that is most aligned with the person’s behaviors, needs, and expectations.
