Workshop and Online - How do I grow my people?

31st July 2019
Presented by John Berry & Sue Berry

The business case for growing your people is persuasive. It’s mostly cheaper than recruiting new staff with new skills and there is the ancillary benefit of heightened commitment from all.

This workshop aims to hit all the main points of people-development science. You will be able to identify from this workshop, areas where you are already proficient and others where you need further development and support.

How's the workshop delivered?

It's run simultaneously online and face to face. The face-to-face group are linked through GoToMeeting to the online partcipants. It works!

Who’s this workshop aimed at?

SME managers who want to excel in developing their people.

What will you learn?

Valid, tangible and immediately applicable information and methods to enable you to excel in growing your people.

What’s the workshop style?

A group of like-minded managers sharing the problem but encouraged and enabled by some short presentations based on webinar material and issues from that material.
