Managing conflict in teams
This module particularly focuses on manager skills needed in addressing conflicts among team members. The module works on the premise of conflicts being an integral and necessary dynamic of healthy teams. The approach to resolution in this module is based on the thought that conflicts by themselves cannot be managed but conflicting ideas can be. Participants work through three levels of conflicts and brainstorm ideas to manage conflicts. At the end of the module, participants achieve a greater understanding of motives and motivations of others and some ideas on bridging idea gaps.
MAPS© - Managing and Assessing Performance Standards
MAPS© is a proprietary flexi module that teaches participants the nuts and bolts of a performance management cycle. One of the biggest struggles for a new manager is managing and sustaining team performance. The transition between being managed to managing is a big change in an employee’s life and MAPS strives to bridge the gaps in skill during this transition. Most new managers fail because they do not manage their people well. This 2 day module takes participants through the entire performance life cycle and focuses on building skills in setting goals, ongoing coaching and feedback, performance review and assessment. This module is scalable to suit specific client needs and can be easily merged with existing performance management systems of organisations.
