Invest in your managers and improve team performance.
Investing in your managers can fundamentally transform and improve your organization. Organisations with effective, human-focused managers materially outperform organizations with poorly skilled and under invested-in managers in many ways. Effective human focused managers improve:
- Employee engagement and wellbeing,
- Employee retention and attraction,
- Employee growth and skills development,
- Collaboration and inter-team working,
- Creativity, problem solving and innovation, and
- Overall individual, team and organizational performance.
Our Connected Management programme helps managers develop the skills, knowledge, tools and confidence to become human focused managers.
As well as delivering Connected Management as an open cohort programme, we can deliver it as a private, internal programme for your organization if you have 8 or more participants that you would like attend.
We believe that the real world is a complex and messy place, especially where people are involved. We don’t believe that there are simple solutions to many of the challenges managers face, nor we we believe that there are single models that are universally applicable that will make you a great manager.
Instead, we believe that becoming a great manager involves improving your self-awareness and developing a rounded understanding of the psychological and social foundations on which great individual and team performances are built. Once you’ve done this, you can learn tools and management practices that you can apply to achieve your management objectives, while helping yourself and those around you be at your best.
Our management development approach is anchored in helping participants explore evidenced based, practically applicable theories and models through self reflection, conversation, peer based activities and in team experiments.
At our core, we believe that helping participants grow as people helps them grow as managers, so this is what we aim to do.
