About the workshop
Organisations are dynamic and subject to constant and often complex change. This dynamism is often stimulated by technology, but societal, cultural and generational factors can also be significant drivers of change. All of these elements need to be recognised and taken into consideration when seeking to manage people effectively. People management is not a skill or competence where ‘one size fits all’. Critically, managers must be willing to identify and respond to the inherent differences in experience, background, education and potential performance for individual members of their team. The essential elements of good management are to drive high performance through reward; to resolve conflict; to support continued professional development and, through consistent monitoring and guidance for staff, to ensure that discrete and project-based tasks are completed – to specification, on time and within budget.
This workshop will help you to become an optimum people manager, developing synergy from your working teams and delivering the highest possible performance.
