Course Description

Improving performance is a continual challenge in the corporate world. Individuals and organisations that succeed are resilient and thrive under pressure. A central feature of exceptional performance is creating teams that are highly effective. In turn, this requires a motivated workforce comprising employees who are focused on achieving team and organisational goals. 
This leadership course will focus on giving you the tools and techniques to uphold a higher performance culture when pressure builds up. The concepts you’ll explore during the two days are based on academic research to allow you and your team to cope with adversity and develop a motivational climate conducive to effectiveness. The course is evidence-based, drawing on various fields of research such as cognitive, military and sport psychology.
You’ll examine the power of performance psychology and use it to reveal and nurture talent in your team.
