DISC and Communication Skills
The team are introduced to the DISC psychometric test (they complete one) and learn how it is a powerful tool for a manager and a leader. We discuss communication skills – mainly email and managing an inbox. The focus after this session is to work out individual team members preferred communication style and their consistent characteristics.
Recruitment and Selection
The team are taken through potential discrimination during the interview process and the recruitment cycle from analysing a CV, pre-screening applicants, interview and question techniques and making the decision. The focus after the session is to look at the company system that is currently being used and get involved with interviewing.
Managing a Changing Environment
We look at the benefits of managing change, an interesting change management model and analyse a recent change within the business. The learners reflect on any improvements they can make for upcoming change within their team and organisation.
Introduction to Human Resource Skills for Managers
This session is about improve not remove. We have a good look at the role of a HR Practitioner and how to initiate and manage an effective PIP process. The team also have a look at challenging conversations, investigations and the disciplinary procedure. It’s an introduction and the focus after the course is to implement the PIP process as a positive development tool.
Dealing with Difficult People and Managing Conflict Within Teams
“Are people trying to be difficult or are they in difficulty”. The team of managers learn that conflict starts when a need has been removed. We look at the needs of the team members and that of the managers and analyse where potential conflict may happen and how to manage it.
Coaching Skills for Managers
Only 30% of the managers and leaders in the UK understand what coaching actually is. We will learn the difference between teaching/instruction, mentoring, counselling and coaching and work through the GROW model and look at how the team can implement coaching for performance and coaching for development into the business/organisation. The focus after this session is to deliver a coaching session (which we develop in the session) without the team member knowing they are being coached.
Appraisal Skills and Meeting Etiquette
If, according to a recent study, meetings are the number 1 timewaster in the workplace then they need to be managed more effectively. We will look at ways to improve current practices and design a meeting charter.
The second part of the day is committed to delivering effective appraisals and putting together motivational personal development plans for the following year. The focus after this session is to organise and hold a team meeting and plan for effective team appraisals.
Team Building Skills
This session looks at building professional relationships and rapport within the team. We’ll look at how to promote a functional team and look at ways to build a high performing team in the workplace with the knowledge from the previous sessions. A very active session with the focus of the day being on removing interdepartmental barriers and to start an annual team building program at work.
Statement of Intent and Program Review
During the last session of the action focused leadership training program we look at the statement of intent which each learner created during the Leadership session (month 2). We look at and celebrate individual results, challenges and victories. We also review each session as a reminder and create an action plan for the following year.
