When Google set out to find what makes a team most effective they discovered that the most important dynamic by a long shot was psychological safety.

Far more than just a feeling, psychological safety is a trait that has to be actively and intentionally fostered. It sets the foundation for trust, vulnerability and healthy conflict.

In this workshop, managers will learn how to nurture psychological safety in their team through a mix of theory and practical tools.

The ability to connect powerfully with other people is vital, even more so in a digital age. Clear communication is paramount to business success.

This session teaches something fundamental – that a small amount of time spent consciously developing ‘the basics’ can transform your personal impact.

There was a time when managing through authority and fear was seen as the only way to get results. Thankfully that view is a thing of the past but it’s shadow can still be seen in business.

Modern management demands a level of emotional intelligence to adapt our management style to our audience and context. To do this, we must first understand ourself.

In this session, managers will learn how to use Daniel Goleman’s 6 styles and Carl Jung’s archetypes to adapt their communication to their team’s situation.

There’s a reason why high performing teams were found to have a ratio of 5:1 positive to negative feedback.

Feedback is the foundation of growth and learning. Yet all too often we shy away from giving feedback and only focus on ‘constructive criticism’.

In this session managers will explore how to create a culture of healthy feedback within their team to accelerate everyone’s growth and performance.

“Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day; teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime.”

That’s all well and good if you have all the time in the world – but teaching takes time and often managers find its easier to just do it themselves. This is a difficult trap to get out of when results are on the line.

This session is all about breaking bad habits. Learning how to let go of control to get the best out of your team and yourself.

Human’s have a tendency to default back to old, and often bad, behaviours when under pressure. And in the modern world of work there is no shortage of stress.

To ensure the learning from the programme is sustained, we end with an exploration of how to maintain performance under pressure.
