Inspiring and Managing Performance

Learn techniques and approaches to enhance the performance of individuals and teams

This is a sample learning overview that we can design and deliver specifically for your organisation.

This workshop provides you with a powerful and effective approach to inspiring and managing performance within your teams.

Together with your facilitator, Claire Drury, you will define performance and Performance Management, explore the different development methods available to drive the performance of the individuals in your team, learn how effective feedback can dramatically improve performance - and you will leave with a detailed action plan for how you will tackle scenarios you have identified.

All this in a highly practical and engaging workshop where you will benefit from the presence of actors to bring to life what you are learning and have ample opportunity to practise newly acquired techniques and approaches. You will return to work energised and bursting with new ideas!
