We believe that stimulating managers to think and act both operationally and strategically at the workshop sessions is the best way to boost performance. Mirroring real-world decision-making experiences in a corporate management environment help to create emotionally-charged environment leading to real experiential learning.

The applied collaborative learning environment – interactive business simulations, self-assessments and case studies – challenge the TMMC participants to analyse available information and make critical decisions to solve various people management cases and challenges. They are playing a role, not just reading and analyzing. They make decisions and see the results of their decisions in the response of other participants and the outcome of the exercise. Through a comprehensive debrief sessions they will analyze and discuss the achieved results – assumptions, pros and cons of the applied decisions, and most importantly – the real business life implications.

Trust is at the heart of every relationship, and it’s especially critical in the workplace. In fact, the primary factor affecting employee turnover is whether or not a trusting relationship was developed between the manager and the employee. Our Building Trust Inside Your Team module practises with managers and their team members how to build trust to increase engagement, creativity, and commitment.

Based on a simple, yet powerful and engaging business simulation on the trust within a team the module provides a common language and framework, focused on the specific behaviors that build trust. With the Building Trust Inside Your Team program, participants are able to understand the impact of their behaviors on building or eroding trust, and can identify those aspects that need attention to build and maintain trusting relationships.

The rules for work are changing – it takes more than good leadership skills to build, maintain and develop great teams.

You gain the skills to diagnose issues such as conflicts, groupthink and lack of commitment in your team before they get out of control. The module offers frameworks to adjust team behaviors and get the best performance out of your people.
