Employee Engagement: - How to create an engaged and switched-on team

The greatest driver of a team's success is their level of engagement. Engaged employees are less likely to resign, unlikely to call in sick when they're not really sick, consistently do more than what's required, and have far greater levels of quality and productivity.

Learning outcomes:

The characteristics of the world's most engaging managers
The secret to getting employees to actually want to do more than what's required
How to build meaningful relationships with any type of employee

Staff Turnover: - How to develop loyal, dedicated and committed employees

Every resignation costs approximately double an employee's annual salary. High levels of employee turnover destabilise your business, strengthen your competitors, and make it harder to achieve organisational objectives. And the number one reason why employees resign? Their direct manager.

Learning outcomes:

The main causes of employee turnover and how to overcome them
How to get employees to love their jobs and adore their company
How to encourage employees to stay - even when the competition is paying more

Motivation: - How to motivate employees without spending a cent

Motivation determines whether employees smile or frown, perform or perish, love you or hate you. Employees' productivity and attitude are influenced by how well managers motivate, and at a time when budgets are squeezed, it's more important than ever to motivate employees with little or no money.

Learning outcomes:


The intrinsic motivators which make the biggest difference to levels of enthusiasm

The actions managers unconsciously make that seriously damage staff motivation
Specific language managers can use to turn around lazy and disinterested employees

Employee En"rage"ment: - Why people hate working for you

In a groundbreaking study of 2,400 people, James Adonis has investigated what causes employees to be angry, frustrated, and upset at work, and in this refreshingly real and brutally honest session, he will share his discoveries and revelations.

Learning outcomes:

The major areas of staff disengagement
What managers should not do rather than what they should do
Practical tips on how to drive down enragement and ramp up engagement

Personal Engagement : - How to engage yourself even when faced with adversity

Every leader should be aware of something known as the 'contagion effect'.  Essentially, it means that their moods, expressions, actions and thoughts are infectious.  Which is why it's so important they not only keep their employees engaged, but also themselves.

Learning outcomes:

How to identify personal strengths and the ways these can be amplified at work
How to acknowledge limitations and the three elements useful in overcoming them
The core contribution of values, purpose, and adaptility in personal leadership

Managing Change: - How to get staff to embrace change rather than resist it

Workplace change is happening faster and more intensely than at any point in history. Organisations are traditionally very good at implementing change, but not so good at getting employees to be on side.  And if employees don't embrace a proposed change, there's a far greater chance it'll fail.

Learning outcomes:

The one core reason why employees resist change and how to overcome it
The key steps in turning cynical employees into advocates of change
The process to follow when employees stubbornly oppose a new change

Teamwork: - How to build a strong, supportive, and spectacular team

When teamwork is at its best, it's a level of synergy that makes a manager's job easy. But when it's dysfunctional, it causes conflict, chaos, and a desperate cry for help. Great teamwork rocks; bad teamwork sucks. It sucks the life, energy, and fun out of every environment.

Learning outcomes:

The major reasons why teams crumble, clash, and disintegrate
The core success factors of high-performing teams
How to get team members to develop trusting relationships with each other
