A two-day team building workshop, with a variety of optional follow-up days, presented by PJ Stevens a motivational and compelling performance coach, who works for leading sports people as well as major blue chip organizations including Esso, O2 and The Prudential.

The basis for this 2-day training programme is on rewarding relationships and ‘strength deployment inventory’.

Organisations are not successful, it is the people who work there that are successful. It is people that drive the business forwards, slow it down, or even put in into reverse! Dig into any organizational problem and you are likely to find people. Conlict, stress, misunderstanding, poor communication skills, demotivation, resistance, low morale and low productivity all have their origins in people and relationship issues. The value of an organization can be measured by the expertise of its staff and their ability to work together.

Research indicates that a typical managers wastes 25% of his/her time to unwarranted conflict, leading directly to a loss in team performance and productivity. Some 60% of performance issues in a team can be attributed to poor interpersonal skills – or soft skills. Proving that soft skills development is no soft option in todays competitive world.

Your organization may be using state of the art information technology and yet managing its people on outdated principles of psychology, stifling energy and creativity, and in effect, wasting peoples motivation and resources – possibly, without even realising.

The session is a highly practical mix of brief presentations, experiential learning, change, and empowerment. It is skills focused and will leave the participants with real understanding, proven techniques and appreciation of rewarding relationships.

Being skilled in relationships is fundamental to business success and impacts directly on productivity, morale and bottom line.
