Learn how to lead, engage and create a better experience for your employees
There is overwhelming evidence that businesses that focus on improving the Employee Experience (EX) outperform organisations that don’t.
And while that may not be an earth-shattering revelation, the reality is the majority of employee engagement surveys conducted continually suggest it’s an area most organisations are not performing well at.
Drawing from our work with Managers & Team Leaders around the world, we designed this How to Manage and Lead Employees training course to help Management Team Members understand the practices, behaviours & practical ideas to lead, engage and create a better experience for their people (e.g. Employee Experience).
The four online modules (each four hours in duration) will provide participants with the skills to create amazing workplaces arming them with the critical components that make a great leader:
- Leadership and Management
- Empowering Team Leaders to succeed
- Performance management & conversations
- Employee Engagement and Culture
The modules are a combination of theory, great stories, lots of practice and of course, all delivered in a fun and welcoming environment that will ensure that at the end of the course, you’ll be ready to put your skills straight to work with confidence.
Who should do this course?
Whilst many of our courses are specific to contact centres, this How to Manage and Lead Employees training course will benefit anyone who manages people in any environment. Typical roles would include:
- Team Leaders/Supervisors
- Contact Centre Managers
- Retail/Store Managers
- General Managers
- Human Resources
What you’ll learn:
You’ll learn how enhance the Employee Experience (EX) over four core modules:
Module 1: Leadership & Management
In our experience working with Managers around the world – some people want to make this too complicated.
And that makes it hard to understand and even harder to do.
We define Leadership – and examine what the best leaders use to inspire people to achieve a shared goal.
And we define Management – and work through how the best Managers guide people to achieve their potential.
Because as a Leader you do both.
Module 2: The Roles & Responsibilities of Team Leaders
One of the most important things a people Manager needs to think about is this. Where does my time go? And is this the best way to spend my time?
In this module, we look at data to help us decide where time is best spent, conduct an intensive time & motion study on where time is actually spent and compare the two.
We also work together to design & build a Success Profile for today’s Manager.
One that we can use – and that we can help others use too.
Module 3: Performance Management & People Conversations
Your organisation needs outcomes. Your people need the guidance & motivation you have on offer.
In this module we spend a lot of time on the different conversations you’ll have with each person who works with you.
From the ‘good’ conversations such as praise, and recognizing something ‘well done’ through to dealing with the more challenging conversations you need to have to help folks learn, keep on track and understand the consequences of what they’re doing (or not doing).
Module 4: Employee Engagement & Culture
It’s easy to get confused. What’s the difference between Employee motivation, satisfaction & engagement? And what the heck is Employee Experience?
Because now everyone is talking about that too. Does that mean we have to go back and undo and redo everything we know about people?
In one of our favourite modules in any course, we untangle all of this and get deeply practical. Because once you know what these things are, why they matter and how to bring them to life – it gets a lot easier.
And we close out the module with a look at Culture – and how you can contribute to building a better one where you work.
Do you also need to improve your coaching skills?
If you work in a contact centre environment, we also have a dedicated course that focusses exclusively on how to manage and coach contact centre agents. It’s an 8-hour online course (delivered over 2 x 4-hour sessions) that provides insights and ideas to measure individual and Team Performance across both Quality and Productivity dimensions and gain confidence in how to manage both the ‘easy’ and more ‘challenging’ Coaching situations.
