Improving Performance Through Teamwork and Cooperation - How to avoid becoming better at doing the wrong things.

This event has been postponed as there were insufficient bookings at the decision-point. If you are interested in attending the event in the future, please register interest above.

This course explores what current management practices reveal about our assumptions and provides a new way of thinking about and leading, teams and organisations; not as traditionally taught, as a collection of autonomous parts but as complex interdependent systems.

Traditionally managers have been trained to conduct performance appraisals, set objectives, assess and reward performance, manage absence and motivate and empower their people. Yet, it’s not a lack of skill that is the cause of the significant problems we face. The skills we choose to develop are a consequence of the way we think, but we rarely question the way we think. Change doesn’t happen at the level of doing, it happens at the level of thinking.

Using stories, theoretical models, practical work, group discussion and individual reflection this one day interactive course enables participants to discover how by improving quality, we can reduce costs and improve productivity whilst fostering optimism, pride and enjoyment in work. Participants will learn how:

1. our subconscious, implicit assumptions determine our organisation’s structure, policies and procedures and, in turn, influence individual and collective behaviour.

2. to differentiate between the two distinctly different types of variation in performance and so avoid misdiagnosing situations and embarking on counterproductive interventions.

3. to manage continuous improvement without loosing sight of the bigger picture and sub- optimising our organisations.

4. to avoid common flaws in traditional management practice that inhibit creativity, innovation and learning.

Course Tutor:

Richard Thorns. For the past twenty years Richard has been employed as an independent business consultant specialising in how to lead complex systems. He creates a safe environment in which managers can challenge traditional assumptions and associated practices in a way that enables learning and new ways of thinking about the workplace to be discovered. He originally trained and worked in the electronics industry first in radio and telecommunications and later in automated production line equipment for the car and computer industries. He has also worked in a comprehensive school, a local authority personnel department and as an adventure cameraman and safety advisor to several national consultancy firms.

Time to Thrive in association with the Civil Society Forum

Come on a Time to Thrive Now course to help you to live life to the full. We get one chance at life (that we know of) so let’s make the most of it! Like a plant in the garden, when we are in the right conditions we just burst into life. Unlike plants, we can get up and walk and do a lot to create those conditions for ourselves. Time to Thrive Now is a six week course using elements of life coaching, sports psychology, mindfulness and CBT to help you face the challenges of life in a positive and supportive way.

Esther has spent more than 25 years supporting individuals and teams to take on challenges in organisations, communities and in the mountains. She has trained as a coach (International Coaching Federation accredited coach training programme), completed a certificate in counselling and qualified as a Human Systems Dynamics Practitioner. She has found these experiences useful in her own life journey and draws on them in helping others along their own journeys.
