Managing People Effectively for Wellbeing and Performance

Managing People Effectively for Wellbeing and Performance

12 September 2017, Central London - facilitated by Professor Derek Mowbray

Background

The foundations for effective people management are behaviours that create the conditions that provoke commitment, trust, motivation, kinship, concentration and social engagement amongst the workforce as well as leaders and managers. The behaviours are those that focus on techniques of persuasion. These components of interaction are known to be the antidote to stress. They are, also, the behaviours and attributes that provoke peak performance in people.

This seminar explores how managers are, often unwittingly, the principal cause of psychological distress at work. It then discusses and helps participants adopt, the behaviours needed by managers to create the conditions that provoke the workforce to thrive and perform at its peak, consistently.

Most managers drift into management without being inducted or trained in how to manage people. It is often said that managing people is common sense. It isn’t. People are not rational; we don’t always do what others predict we will do; we are often seen as a challenge, and persuading people to do things without causing distress is not simple.

Managers are the principal cause of psychological distress at work. It is the manager’s job to interact effectively with staff to ensure that optimum performance is achieved consistently. This means that managers need to play to the strengths of their staff, and engage with them so that staff engage with their work, and achieve high levels of performance.

The foundations for effective people management are commitment, trust and engagement. These features of interaction are known to be the antidote to stress, and the platform for wellbeing and high performance.
