What does it mean to be a great manager in the 21st Century? There is a direct correlation between your management and leadership skills and the performance of your team/ department or business.
This workshop explores how to get the best out of your people based on the skill, will and focus model.

It will explore ‘how do I create the capacity, capability and desire in my team to deliver more?’ When to tell and direct and when to coach and empower? How do you tap into an employee’s discretionary effort, get them to go the ‘extra mile’ and really make a difference to your business. We present the five steps to having robust dialogues and great delivery conversations and explore how to adapt your approach to different team members and personalities. 

We cover how to effectively implement change and new ways of working while continuing to deliver operationally 24/7.  How do you deliver the day job and manage the team and at the same time scan the horizon for future opportunities and developments?

Lastly we present the ‘Coloured Thinking Model’ around working and learning preferences to help you better understand how to get the best out of your people and what your own preferences are.
