THE POWER OF GREAT MANAGEMENT IN THE WORKPLACE

Effective people leadership skills are critical for navigating the fast pace of change within workplaces today. Great management is vital for all high performing and happy teams and is an essential part of building healthy and thriving workplaces.

Great managers consistently engage their teams to achieve outstanding performance. They create environments where employees take responsibility for their own, and their team’s, engagement and build workplaces that are engines of productivity and profitability.

The results you are getting in your organisation across the board are greatly influenced by the management skillset of your people leaders.

GREAT MANAGERS ARE LEADERS, THEY:

  • Lead their people
  • Take responsibility for the engagement and performance of their people
  • Lead by example cultivating a positive and encouraging team culture
  • Consistently coach and develop their people to deliver results
  • Are hungry for growth, seeking out feedback to help them improve

THE INFLUENCE MANAGERS HAVE ON THEIR PEOPLE

Managers account for at least 70% of the variance in employee engagement scores across business units, Gallup estimates.

The future success of a company will rely on the development of a highly conscious style of management, a great manager. The role is less about control and more about enabling people to do their best work in an environment that fosters creativity, experimentation and learning.

This new manager functions as a connector, catalyst and enabler of ideas and innovation.

CAITLIN BARR-SMITH | COMPANY ACCOUNTANT | CLASSIC GROUP

Every session was useful and interesting and the energy you bring makes for a better learning experience. I’ve learnt the importance of self-reflection and it opened my eyes to things I wasn’t seeing. The training encouraged me to reflect on the impact of my actions as manager.

This programme is one of the most fantastic mentoring and learning experiences I have had. It really helped me in my work. Vanessa is an excellent facilitator and mentor. Thank you so much for all your support throughout this programme. You were my biggest catalyst. I feel so lucky to have met you and learnt all I did. You really are fantastic.

NICK BECK | SENIOR CONSTRUCTION MANAGER | CLASSIC BUILDERS BAY OF PLENTY

Overall a great course. It was confronting when it needed to be which forced me to face some hard truths when looking at the sustainability of the way I like to work. I experienced massive personal growth. I feel more equipped to deal with issues that pop up in my current role.
