I help managers to work well under pressure and, because the workplace is changing, I also help them to develop the skills they need to cope with the workplace of the future.
Advances in technology, an increasingly younger workforce and increasing competition means that competencies need to be future proofed if Managers and their teams are to survive and thrive.
Specialising in interactive workshops and one to one coaching, I enhance your employees’ performance and interpersonal skills so that you can retain your best talent.
• Stress and Resilience Training
• Emotional Intelligence Skills
• Management skills for the future
• Generation Y training for Managers
• Essential skills for Generation Y
Increasing these skills means:
• Productivity and profitability increase.
• Work related stress is reduced.
• Staff are more motivated and engaged.
• Morale and wellbeing are improved.
The foundation of my work is emotional intelligence; the skills of self awareness, self management, social awareness and relationship management. With these skills employeees can make real changes in their behaviours and attitudes resulting in better engagement, motivation and resulting in increased productivity.
To perform well employees need to be resilient, control their stress levels and they need to have the skills to be flexible.
As research shows that technical knowledge and skills actually contribute only 15% towards effectiveness. Emotional intelligence is essential for organisations who wish to take performance to the next level, attract and retain the best talent and develop ‘Millennial Leaders’. It is these pesonal skills that struggling employees, especially the younger generation, the Generation Ys, often lack.
The benefits to your organisation are:
• Managers have the skills to confidently and competently lead teams to meet the challenges of a rapidly evolving workplace and diverse teams.
• A more agile, competent workforce able to work under pressure, think more clearly, make sound decisions.
• Reduced risk of work related stress absenteeism and greater resilience.
• Generations work effectively and productively together
• Increased profitability that comes with greater efficiency and reduced staff turnover.
Many company payrolls span three or four generations each with its own leadership, communication and learning styles. This can lead to misunderstandings, conflict and lack of engagement so it is essential that each generation understands the needs and drivers of the others. Managers, in particular, may find themselves in 'generation sandwich' - reporting to an older generation but managing employees who are much younger, all viewing the world through different lens.
Added to this is the fact that advances in technology means that flexible working is easier and employees are no longer bound by geography and can work together from anywhere on the globe. Remote and virtual working is a reality with more than one-third of executives expecting over half of their full-time employees will be working remotely by 2020.
This places specific and unique demands on organisations and Managers in particular who need to adapt and update their skills to ensure they cope with the new ways of working.
Training to increase awareness of the generational differences and, in particular, effective ways to manage the younger generation, the Generation Y or Millennials, means better team work, less conflict, increased productivity and engagement and better staff retention.
