60 Minute Session

The Aim of the Programme

To Inspire your people to take responsibility for their own self-development isn’t always easy

Most organisations already have the answer in place but just don’t use it very well and focus to much on the process and the documentation rather than the conversations

The companies that do it well get great results.

It’s simple; inspire your managers and team members to maximise the benefits of your Appraisal, PDRs, PDPs systems with regular one to ones, ongoing coaching and feedback.

Keep it simple, encourage, challenge and enable you people to take responsibility for their own development and in turn you will gain a more focused, engaged and productive team

In a nutshell ‘If they can’t look after themselves, who is going to do it for them?’
