How To Build A High Performance Culture

In-Company Course Overview

What is a High Performance Culture? Is it something an organisation can deliberately and specifically focus on creating? What separates world class performers from the majority? This one day leadership training course gives you the inside track on what best in class performers are doing differently, with specific techniques and ideas you can take away and implement, either at a local, tactical level or at a more strategic, organisational development one.

Who Should Attend

Directors and senior managers looking for new, related ideas to stimulate different ways of thinking about the challenges their organisation faces would significantly benefit from attending. Also, executives looking for benchmarking ideas or for a catalyst to support their company in making a necessary performance step-change would leave with a range of new techniques and examples.

Course Objectives

  • Understand whether their organisation has the potential to be world-class
  • Identify the required foundations for building a high performing organisation
  • Build a company specific framework to engage the organisation on the journey towards becoming best-in-class
  • Get past the rhetoric of employees ‘being valuable’ to the real deal of people impactful engagement
