Do you have engaging managers in your organisation? A key influence on employee engagement is often the relationship between the manager and individual employee. Managers who are good at engaging their team are noted to have several competencies in common: guiding and leading the team, role modelling, supporting employee development and building team relationship. There are many expectations placed on managers by their team that can be difficult to navigate. From demands for career development, better worklife balance to clear direction on what to do, a manager needs to have a clear narrative and some simple tools to help.
This programme targets employee engagement at the heart of where problems may occur and where change can be achieved rapidly. Through the programme, managers become more aware of the behaviours that boost team engagement, how they are performing and practice developing them. To embed management learning, we offer a feedback assessment tool to help managers evaluate their current team environment combined with one-to-one coaching or workshop support. Our workshop can be tailored for new line managers or experienced manager peer groups.
The key benefits of the workshop include:
- Gives managers time to reflect on their manager style, develop the way they communicate this and how they manage differences within the team
- Explores the team’s purpose and how this is communicated within the team as well as with other stakeholders
- Offers simple tools to help managers tackle career conversations with their team
