If managers and team members in your business never seem to have enough time, better time management will help to regain control of your days.
Whether it’s just in the job or in life generally, learning how to manage time more effectively helps people become more productive, feel more relaxed, focused and in control. Good time management at work means doing high-quality work, not high quantity.
Spending more time on something doesn’t necessarily achieve more and staying an extra hour at work at the end of the day may not be the most effective way to manage your time – not to mention the effect this may have on your personal life.
We help managers and employees concentrate on results and getting more from their day and not on how busy they are.
Performance management should be a “daily doing” for managers and is much more than just an annual or half-yearly performance review. Positive performance management is the continuous process of setting objectives, assessing progress and providing on-going coaching and feedback to ensure that employees are meeting their objectives and career goals on a daily basis.
Objectives should not just be KPIs and task output but also include behaviours, engagement and attitudes – all of which can be measured and managed. Formal performance reviews held once or twice a year should simply be a summary and confirmation of many smaller conversations between manager and employee throughout the year.
When managers practice daily performance management individual, team and departmental performance improves exponentially. We provide managers with all the tools they need to get the best out of their teams and drive continuous improvement.
There is always more to be done as a manager. You may have a To Do list with a lot of items crossed off, but did you accomplish the most important things today? Especially when others depend on you, you have to learn to make tough choices on what to do, what to put off, and what to say no to. That’s where priority management comes in.
We introduce your managers to some highly practical and effective strategies to help them prioritise their work and get the right things done.
Whether you’re a small to medium enterprise or large multi-national, hiring the ‘right’ talent for specific job roles remains a critical business task. Good recruitment and selection will future-proof your organisation – but get it wrong and your team or business will suffer.
In a business world where candidates are more sophisticated interviewees and its becoming more difficult to identify the right candidate, managers need to learn new and more effective methods of attracting, recruiting, selecting and identifying the very best talent.
Our range of bespoke workshops provide managers with the skills and confidence needed to interview and select for your organisation’s business needs and goals as well as the ability to identify and predict behaviours, values and cultural fit.
HAVING DIFFICULT CONVERSATIONS
Most managers know when they need to have a difficult conversation with someone—a conversation that, if it took place, would improve life at the office for themselves and for everyone else on their team. Unfortunately fear often drowns that inner voice—and they put the conversation off. Meanwhile the offending individual continues to provide substandard performance, miss deadlines, engage in interpersonal conflicts and exhibit toxic behaviour.
Handling difficult conversations requires skill and empathy, but ultimately, it requires the courage to go ahead and do it. The more managers get into the habit of facing these issues squarely (and in real-time), the more adept they will become at it. We provide managers with the skills, strategies and motivation to handle a wide variety of difficult conversations in a positive and effective way.
WELLBEING & MENTAL HEALTH
Health and wellbeing in the workplace isn’t just about feeling content or maintaining a good work-life-balance, although these are certainly essential components.
Promoting health and wellbeing is also about improving confidence and job satisfaction, developing positive relationships, avoiding physical harm, and encouraging a healthy lifestyle. As a manager or supervisor, you have a duty of care towards your employees and should look to promote their health, safety and welfare on a daily basis. Not only will this enhance employees’ everyday lives, but it will also make workers more productive and motivated in their job roles.
Our range of Health and Wellbeing seminar modules cover everything you and your managers need to know in order to develop and implement an effective wellbeing strategy for yourself and others, no matter where you work.
