Code of Conduct for Managers

Code of Conduct for Managers

The Managers Code of Conduct - linking wellbeing with performance

This workshop is devoted to the behaviours that result in commitment, trust and engagement between managers and employees, and a method of change that involves the preparation and implementation of a Managers Code of Conduct.

Organisations are controlled communities, normally controlled by managers. They play an essential and pivotal role in the success or failure of any business or service.

Managers can be the main cause of stress at work through their weakness in managing people and solving routine daily problems that involve people management.

The ripple effect of weak management can be dire for any organisation, leading to excess costs attributable to under performing employees.
