Inspiring and effective people managers and line managers are critical to the success of any organisation, as they are responsible for increasing productivity, ensuring targets are met and also for creating inclusive environments where employees feel engaged, respected and valued.
Therefore, its concerning to read recent research from the CIPD which cites that 40% of employees, who had experienced bullying and harassment at work, said their manager was responsible. (CIPD: Managing Conflict in the Modern Workplace: January 2020)
Establishing a positive workplace culture is essential for the success of any organisation and bullying and harassment should never be tolerated. The negative impact it can have on individuals, both personally and professionally, can be significant and long-lasting. However, it is important to recognise that perception is subjective, and what one person perceives as a motivating challenge; another may see as an unreasonable demand.
This practically based workshop will equip you with an understanding of the policies and procedures which are relevant within any performance management and developmental conversation. The tools and techniques we will explore will equip you to create safe yet stretching development spaces for team members to reflect on their own performance, ensuring discussions are framed around a positive intent for growth, are centred within a business and operational context and take into account individual circumstance.
