The role of the Manager is crucial to team performance. But being a successful Manager isn’t an easy task. You have to manage work and people, and it’s the people aspect that can take time (that you don’t have) and energy (which isn’t an infinite resource).
If you manage people, do you find yourself spending more and more time focussed on people issues rather than the work that needs to be done? Are you confident that everyone is clear about the role they need to play?
Sometimes the relationships within the team can cause conflict - are there tensions between members of your team or do you find it difficult delegating to some members of your team?
We can help you. How? By running a workshop for you, and for your team.
We help you to identify strengths in the team, and how to get the most out of each individual. We will give you the tools to manage each person effectively.
By working with your team we can help you to define and communicate clear goals, and develop an atmosphere which encourages everyone to share their strengths and weaknesses.
Contact us to find out how we can help you. We’re approachable, realistic and want to help.
Normally we spend time with the manager on a 1:1, followed by a session with the team and then 1:1 sessions for all team members. We can carry out most of this using Skype or similar but we do recommend a face to face team workshop. But we can be flexible depending on your needs, time scales and location. Please get in touch so we can find out the best solution for you.
"It helped me to understand more about myself, as well as gaining useful insight into how to get the best from each member of my team. Since the training, we’ve been able to use the ‘language’ of Belbin to discuss more openly the way we work and implement changes that I hope will benefit us all when working collaboratively to meet our objectives."

If you are unsure whether a workshop is what you require, please contact us. We can help guide you through how to use the Belbin Reports over the phone, and point you in the right direction towards resources that will help you make the most out of the people, and the relationships, within your team.
Managing is difficult. Let us help you.
