Learn how to motivate your team members and turn under performers into top performers

Tailored specifically to your work situation and those aspects of performance management that you find difficult, this highly interactive module focuses on motivating and communicating with team members and handling those difficult conversations with under-performers. This hugely enjoyable course uses 'Forum Theatre' and professional actors to ensure that you get the best from your staff. Whilst public courses use pre-agreed scenarios and filmed actors, Private Courses have the option of using live actors and your own scenarios agreed up front.
