Introduction to the course

This Building Resilience and Sustainable Team Performance is a specialist and highly interactive training course that offers delegates the opportunity to understand and apply the latest applications of management, psychology, and professional development to enable them to better help their own teams to perform and grow in challenging times, where uncertainty and rapid change can be so unsettling to so many.

The cost in time and money to recruit and train new team members, and the loss of tacit knowledge held by those that may leave, means it is now more important than ever for managers to understand the capital investment and value in the people side of our businesses. What motivates people beyond money? Why do people leave ‘good’ jobs? How do we create a team culture that makes leaving a less attractive option for those talented and often difficult to replace people?
