Performance Leadership & Motivation Skills

Organisations thrive on the successes of effective management and leadership. Performance is one of the most important responsibilities for any manager or leader. From motivational practices versus the heart’s desire, it’s all about understanding the balance of purpose and challenge. Too much can develop pressure and stress which can affect overall wellbeing, and less of a challenge can lead to tediousness and boredom. All in all, both result into underperformance, lack of motivation and dissatisfaction within the team.

This expert-led virtual training from our Leadership & Management series, is delivered by Mel Owers, whose expertise in HR and recognised as a chartered fellow of the CIPD, can show you the ropes to unlock the secrets of positive performance, inspire excellence, encourage motivation and to meet the needs or challenges faced for your organisation. 

At the Civil Service College, we tailor our courses to each attendee’s role and organisations, ensuring that each delegate gets the most out of the training. Our courses and trainers are continuously updated and evaluated to ensure that we are always delivering the best service possible.
