Event Details

Is everything we know about the best way to develop employees flawed? Want to develop yourself and others, but don’t have the time, the budget or the inspiration? Ready to take advantage of the growing trend towards short, self-directed learning, but don’t know where to start? During this high impact session we will challenge conventional thinking around how best to build potential in the workplace by drawing on the latest research into the science of people. Throughout the programme, we will we will present a smorgasbord of highly improbable, yet evidence-based methods for HR to develop capability in the workplace and deliver outstanding results through people.

Featuring an eclectic range of insights including lessons from: Buddhism, hot yoga, social psychology, art negotiations, television quiz-shows and compulsive gambling; you will learn practical techniques which can easily be applied back in the workplace. With counter-intuitive approaches from: The Gallup Organisation, Jessica Ennis-Hill, Anne Robinson, Douglas Mackenzie Davey… and underperforming schoolchildren. Learning Outcomes Some of the themes we will explore:

  • The single best way to identify a great manager.
  • Whether or not it is possible to remain truly objective during recruitment.
  • Counter-intuitive ways to generate creative thought.
  • Who to support first during times of transition at work.
  • Unlikely tools to increase your personal influencing skills.
  • A preposterous method to build the productivity of teams.
  • Novel ways to control your stress levels and amplify resilience levels.
  • Plus, we will also provide you with access to 100’s of other practical ideas to extend performance in role.
