How can managers be developed to their full potential?  How do our people develop?

Too often, organisations see management development as an “event” – a training course or program.  Such events, no matter how popular, well planned and facilitated, are most often not successful in changing behaviour over the longer term.  Our emphasis on management development is to assist organisations with the design and implementation of ongoing learning and development processes for their people. To be truly effective, such processes are integrated into the person’s day to day work.

Following is an example of a leadership development process designed to take place over a 12 month period:

CHECKpoint™

November 22, 2008 No Comments

Are your employees motivated and performing at their best?  Go to a CHECKpoint™ to find out!

“What’s working for us?”

It is disappointing but true: an organisation cannot conduct a major survey often enough to stay ahead of important feedback and subtle but critical organisational changes.

Because it only takes an employee 10 minutes to complete, your client organisation can conduct the employee feedback survey CHECKpoint™ every six months to keep abreast of changes in staff morale and motivation and make the necessary adjustments quickly.

The report recommends suggested action to take in light of the results with practical tips on how to go about these recommendations.

Improve managerial effectiveness with the Leader Manager Profile™

“Used exclusively by the Australian Graduate School of Management on their Executive Programs for Middle Managers”

The performance of one group, the management team – is particularly critical to the success of any organisation. To improve performance managers need to know:

  • What’s my current level of performance (as seen by others)?
  • What do I need to keep doing?
  • What (if anything) do I need to change?
  • How do I ensure consistency of performance over time?

The Leader Manager Profile™ is a 360° feedback profile that has been developed with organisations over a 10 year period to provide an effective benchmarking and development tool for managerial development.

The Negotiating Advantage™

November 22, 2008 No Comments

How can you get the best deal for you and your clients?

Often people ask: How can we get a better deal here? Too often, negotiation is considered to be a formal process carried out behind closed doors by high powered executives, politicians or world leaders. But negotiation occurs in every business, every day – and usually by every member of staff.

When the everyday situations that the organisation faces aren’t recognized as negotiations, chances are, the people involved will go into them unprepared. The result will be a less than successful outcome.
