What you can expect

Coaching Conversations

This module outlines the benefits of using a coaching style of conversation. Goals that enable employees to influence how they can go about tasks can lead to greater well being, productivity and job satisfaction. Managers and reviewers can use a range of coaching skills and styles to enable this, along with a spectrum of ‘directive’ to ‘non-directive’ approaches.

Strengths Based Approach

This module focuses on taking a strengths-based approach. Such an approach focuses on identifying what is positive about individuals, organisations and communities. Research by Gallup found that doing so results in higher levels of productivity, customer loyalty and employee retention.

How to Manage Your Career

This module focuses on ‘Helping Your Employees Manage Their Careers’.  It provides a framework, the Intelligent Careers Model (Arthur et al 1995), for knowing what to focus on in career discussions and what employees need to think about when considering how to manage their careers.

Leading Successful Connected Conversations

This module focuses on Leading Successful Connected Conversations for Performance and Career Development with a video masterclass and an outline of the skills needed to deliver these conversations and your guide to planning the discussions, delivering the discussions and following up.

It's All About Feedback

Ratings, reviews, comments: we’ve grown used to having our say on the services we use. We’ve come to expect that same interaction from our employer. Today’s workforce expects to be able to give input to leadership teams as a matter of course. And vice versa.

The connected conversation opens this two-way street: it’s an open channel for feedback to flow. Done well, connected conversations offer chances to guide employees and help them improve-and at the same time, taking a health-check on the overall feeling in the organisation.
