Better Leaders Ask Better Questions
Learn Highly Effective Communication Techniques To Enhance Your Teams Performance
The premise for this workshop is that we spend too much time telling others what to do and unknowingly prevent them from being resourceful. Workplace cultures that do not facilitate people finding the answers for themselves can be stifling and toxic to work in, leading to disengaged and underperforming staff who are inhibited in performing at their best.
This workshop brings you the opportunity to learn some strategies that facilitate the people you converse with to tap into their potential and resourcefulness, leading to them feeling more valued, engaged, motivated and fulfilled. The skill of asking Better Questions in your leadership role will have a profound impact on your ability to allow others to fulfil their potential and you will walk away with some simple strategies to put into place immediately.
By attending this programme, participants will improve their ability to communicate with their teams in a way that creates more engagement, motivation and productivity which will drive higher revenues.
