Training course overview

People are like electricity… they are no use unless switched on. No company can succeed in the long run without energised employees. However, research indicates that getting people “switched on” is an ever-increasing challenge. Many leaders currently witness low morale through the rise of part-time and flexible work schedules, organisational downsizing, changing markets and the delayering of traditional structures. Against such a backdrop the role of front line leaders becomes critical. This training course offers practical insights and strategies that generate the positive organisational landscape which can build and sustain employee commitment through intellectual, affective and social engagement. This Coventry Academy online training course examines the strategies that build meaningfulness in the workplace and create competitive advantage in the market.
