Managing People for High Performance: Soft Skills for Hard Results
This is a one day program that has been delivered to hundreds of managers, and receives great feedback from participants.
Very few managers have had training in people management and people motivation skills. A lot of managers have been promoted to management positions as a reward for being conscientious, or for their long years of hard work. Often these managers have received very little training in the area of people management. And many of the managers who have received training in business or management haven’t been trained in the area of people management. That’s because most university courses and management training programs don’t focus enough, if at all, on developing these skills.
In order to develop excellent skills in managing people, managers need to provide employees with direction and feedback, in the right way and of the right type. That’s a big part of what the Soft Skills for Hard Results training program is all about.
This program applies the findings from behavioural science and from years of management practice that has shown what works in managing people to achieve high performance. The knowledge and skill that managers will learn are similar to what sports psychologists use to achieve high performance with sports teams. This knowledge can also be applied to your own life and to assisting your family and friends to achieve more.
While this program draws on a large amount of research findings from the behavioural sciences, it is not about bombarding people with theory. This program is about teaching managers skills that have been tried and tested and shown to work in practice.
