About this Event
Are you a manager considering how to get the best out of your team? This engaging online and participatory workshop offers you an opportunity to assess, reflect upon, and focus your approach to staff development. You will consider what professional development opportunities look like with remove and hybrid working, and explore various management techniques to effectively engage staff, from the enthusiastic to the disengaged. By the end of the session you will have an action plan to empower your staff to reach their potential and which supports you to achieve your organisational objectives.
Who is it for?
For new managers who are working out their personal management approach and for experienced managers who would like the opportunity to assess, reflect upon, and focus their approach to staff development.
By the end of this session, participants will have:
1. A deeper understanding of key skills and behaviours that can facilitate staff development, with specific reference to remote working
2. Explore and critique potential barriers (for yourself and your staff) that limit development
3. Understand how to build and maintain learning cultures within your team that are also embedded across the institution (and beyond)
4. Identify techniques for engaging the disengaged; helping all staff access development
5. Produce a personalised development action plan for yourself and your staff
