Writing down your goals regularly results in more than 50% more likelihood of achieving them and yet most people haven’t clearly defined their short and long-term personal or work goals.  Even clear goals don’t guarantee success without the accompanying planning, time, task, and people management skills. A successful team knows exactly what they are aiming for, why, how they are going to achieve it, and most importantly they have the confidence and motivation to get there. 

This fast-paced training course will take you step-by-step through from the big picture thinking and goal setting down to the daily details of planning and achieving results for yourself and your team.

We will also explore the critical ability to make clear decisions under pressure and to lead a team to success through empowered delegation, emotional intelligence, and inspiring and effective communication. 

During the course, you will have the opportunity to share ideas and work in small groups to discuss techniques and practice new skills. In order to enhance learning, you will be invited to complete short tasks between sessions and then gain individual feedback on progress, ask questions and receive support from our training consultant.
