LEADING & DEVELOPING HIGH PERFORMANCE

Modular Programme

The genesis for this material came about through researching what effective managers, across a variety of industries, actually did when creating High Performance. ‘Creating’ is not too strong a term here because, in the same set of circumstances, some managers were highly effective, while many of their counterparts were much less so. It was as though some people had, in various ways, found an approach which really worked for them – and that approach was remarkably consistent across all the effective managers and range of industries – while the less successful managers operated to a much less cohesive or consistent approach.

Tune your skills & learn to cope with circumstance

What was sharply visible, too, was that the more effective managers were much more competent and comfortable in responding to the demands of today’s organisational context, while the less effective ones, although perhaps having been successful in the past, were struggling to come to grips with new ways of working.

We were encouraged, in the words of one of the people we worked with, to ‘bottle’ the best practice we found and thus make it available to others. Our experience since with thousands of managers is that they strongly identify with the approach, and find the techniques and practices meaningful, practical and readily applicable.

Whether you need to tune your skills or cope well with a new set of circumstances, or whether you are becoming responsible for the performance of others for the first time, we believe that sharing our approach with you will help.
