People & Organisational Effectiveness – Live Online

Back to Managing People

Delegates run an stand-up exercise.

Overview

In a working environment characterised by rapid change and uncertainty and an imperative for higher performance, leaders and managers know they have to get the best from their employees and from themselves to develop an effective workplace.

This programme looks at how leaders and managers can increase the effectiveness of their team and their organisation through enhancing the attraction, motivation, development and retention of their employees.

We look at the approaches, mechanisms and practices that increase performance and commitment and build alignment with the strategic objectives of the organisation.

The programme draws on latest research and case studies showcasing innovative approaches to increasing organisational and team effectiveness.

Day one: How can organisations align people to the strategic imperatives and build a sense of commitment?

Day two: The latest advances in motivation research and performance management. How can leaders and managers take their employees to a new level in terms of behaviours and output?

Day three: The varieties of diversity, including age, gender, cultural and generational differences. How can we harness these differences to add to organisational effectiveness?

In the concluding part of the programme, there will be an effectiveness clinic and finish with highly practical takeaways for your own organisation.
