Getting the Best From People: Empathise & Motivate in Difficult Times
The Civil Service and Public Sector are facing an incredibly difficult time, with budget cuts and political change threatening to undermine morale. However, even in the face of such turbulence, leaders and managers still need to get the best from their staff.
This half day course is designed to help participants make the most out of the eight key ways to enhance empathy and motivation. It will also explore how managers can learn more about the differences between team members and maximise the value diverse talents and perspectives can add to the team's overall performance.
