About the workshop
All organisations depend on their leaders, managers and front-line staff to fulfil their organisation’s mandate and achieve results. Developing an organisational culture, a working environment and good policies and practices which enable individuals and teams to perform at their best is key to helping public, private and non-government organisations to function efficiently, effectively and successfully. In the case of the public sector in particular, getting the best out of staff is crucial for delivering services to the public. Our workshop will give you an understanding of what motivates people to do a good job. It will provide you with guidance and practical skills in leading teams and managing individual performance.
