About the course

In a working environment increasingly characterised by rapid change and uncertainty and an ever-strengthening imperative for higher performance, leaders and managers know they have to get the best from their employees and the best from themselves in order to develop an effective workplace.

This programme looks at how leaders and managers can increase the effectiveness of their team and their organisation through enhancing the attraction, motivation, development and retention of their employees. We look at the approaches, mechanisms and practices that increase performance and commitment and build alignment with the strategic objectives of the organisation.

We draw on latest research from leading organisations showing both current practice and innovative approaches to provide insights into how to increase organisational and team effectiveness.

  • The first day focuses on how organisations can align people to the strategic imperatives and build a sense of commitment to them.
  • The second day looks at the latest advances in motivation research and performance management to see how leaders and managers can take their employees to a new level in terms of their behaviours and outputs.
  • The third day looks at the varieties of diversity, including age, gender, cultural and generational differences, to see how harnessing these differences can add to organisational effectiveness. In the concluding part of the programme, there will be an effectiveness clinic and finish with highly practical takeaways for your own organisation.


  • Development alignment and commitment to the organisational or team strategy
  • Talent attraction, nurturing and individual development
