What affects Business/Team Performance, Motivation, Engagement, and Productivity?


Learning about what affects performance is the start point for improving it 
… critical for all leaders

Creative-Analytical Workshops aimed at groups of Leaders.
All these workshops are effective - and productive - leadership development events.
Each workshop:
- examines the fundamental concepts of performance drivers and inhibitors 
- studies particular factors relevant to the client's own business/organisation/teams to resolve specific issues, and
- creates practical ideas for improvements.

♦ What affects Business Performance considers the key factors that can affect the performance of any business. For example how your people think, your organisation's fundamental strategy, culture, marketing and selling, creativity, learning, and a host of other factors.

♦ What affects Team Performance examines the 20-plus generic factors that can affect the performance of any team, at any level.

♦ What affects Motivation, Engagement, and Productivity probes all the major factors that can significantly impair, or drive, the performance of any employee.

Find out the major factors that make a huge impact on performance at an organisational and team level. Email us at and ask for our White Paper on "What affects business and team performance?".

Leaders as 70-20

Organisations now expect (and reward) their leaders and managers to take greater responsibility for developing their staff. Our 70-20 workshops give practical advice on how to:
- identify and analyse learning and development needs 
- coach (not a natural skill for many leaders)
- identify cost-effective on-job development opportunities.

Attendees will capitalise on their prime position as leader to observe performance and see opportunities to develop their team.

Leading Challenging Conversations 


Find out why managers duck issues, and how to overcome concerns

Provides tools and techniques to enable anyone to approach with confidence a challenging conversation/meeting. Can be designed to deal with client's particular issues, eg handling poor performance.

Ask for our research on how and why managers shy away from dealing with difficult situations which ultimately affect business and team performance, and how best to resolve this usually-undetected problem.
