Managing & Motivating High Performing Teams
This course is for mangers who want to learn how to help their staff become more motivated and so improve morale and productivity. It looks at what a team is and is not, the stages a team passes through, and the different roles to be found in teams including those outlined in the Belbin Inventory. Then, different theories of motivation are examined, especially person-centred and humanistic. Change and resistance to change are featured, as is the importance of regular supervision. Thus delegates will learn not only how to help people become more motivated but also how to help teams and individuals deal with the cumulative effects of stress, which, if not addressed, can lead to demotivation and burnout. The day finishes with a self-reflection exercise that helps managers to identify areas of their management style that will foster motivation and areas that they might need to work on.
