Teams are integral to the effectiveness of a successful growing business. The right blend of people and ethos together with the correct management can transcend an organisation’s long term success.
This course covers three essential topics under the management umbrella: The golden thread of objectives, measuring performance, and managing performance.
First you will learn a systematic method for connecting your organisational vision with day to day task level objectives, a critical aspect in driving motivation and commitment in teams and individuals. We call this the Golden Thread, the connection that runs through every stage from vision to task. Without this connection daily activities can begin to feel misguided, unnecessary, and even debilitating.
The second topic will save you a massive headache by teaching you how to measure and monitor effectively. We must measure progress towards targets, but measuring and monitoring in the wrong areas could cause skewed or even false results, not to mention the wasted time and effort involved. Get to grips with multiple potential measures, and understand what key areas you should be measuring in order to recoup clear accurate, and useful data.
The final topic in this course is managing performance. You’ll learn ways of adapting your approach to performance management to meet individuals needs. Using our will vs skill matrix you will discover a formula for prescribing an approach based upon your staff members current competence and attitude.

Three things you must avoid when giving feedback
I previously wrote about feedback in the blog post 'Three reasons positive feedback matters’. It’s clear that being able to deliver feedback in a great way is such a useful skill for anyone to have. However, I’ve certainly met lots of people who would say that they have experienced poor feedback on any number of occasions.
Three reasons positive feedback matters
What’s all the fuss around giving people praise, especially if they are only doing what’s expected of them? Sometimes we managers can get ourselves into a really unhelpful way of thinking. Perhaps it’s because we feel we mustn’t ‘over-do’ the praise of our staff.
