Manager and Team Development Carole Brown
The manager’s role is often extremely busy and at times stressful and unforgiving. At ICS we provide the following options to support managers in their roles.
People Management Essentials Program
This series of 1 day workshops is offered individually or can be combined as a People Management Essentials program. All workshops are practically-focussed, with a focus on case studies and the particular experience and questions participants bring. They are run in-house and accept up to 20 participants. Workbooks and materials are included.
The Difficult Conversations workshop
This workshop is designed for managers and team leaders wanting to improve their skills in holding difficult conversations. The workshop assists participants to:
• deliver difficult feedback about performance, attitude or behaviour – honestly and proactively
• bring a coaching approach to these conversations
• encourage individuals to accept responsibility for the changes that they need to make
• provide a supportive environment for the individual to make these changes
This workshop also gives you an opportunity to consider the positive impact of properly addressing an issue and preparing for an honest, open, clear and constructive conversation with an individual. You will practice a difficult conversation, including how to get the ‘opening statement’ across clearly and succinctly and explore what the follow up conversations will look and sound like.
Building effective teams
High performing, flexible teams are of enormous value to organisations and the individuals who make them up, leading to excellent results attuned to business needs and a deep sense of satisfaction.
This workshop gives managers and team leaders the opportunity to enhance their team leadership skills by:
• building ongoing positive and constructive relationships
• understanding the styles, skills and aspirations of individual team members
• communicating strategy, developing shared goals, clarifying expectations
• having the courage and capability to hold difficult conversations
• adopting a coaching approach
Leading your team through change
