Much research has focused on the question: 'what motivates and engages staff''? The consistent answer is the behaviour – and specifically the coaching behaviours – of the manager.

Employees that work for a great manager understand what is expected of them and know when they have done a good job and when they have not. Mistakes are treated as learning opportunities and the manager uses a level of control that makes sense for the employee. Just as importantly, when employees face barriers on the job, the manager makes an honest attempt to understand.

This workshop provides the core skills of a great manager, and  makes extensive use of skills practices to lock in learning  to the point where it can be readily used back on the job.
