The Managers OPEN programme is designed to help delegates and become highly effective in their role by equipping them for the challenges of Leadership & Management. Areas that the programme will explore include:
As a delegate on the programme, the manager gained knowledge and skills around the difference between leadership and management, coaching and mentoring, improving self-awareness, thinking strategically, and managing innovation & change. This subsequent uplift in performance was so great, that the manager was recommended for a future position on the board.
As a direct result of the manager’s individual development success, the department became much more engaged and produced exceptional results.
Talent Labs are an engaging five-stage process of self-awareness and positive learning designed to help organisations establish a common agreement on development areas. To achieve the best outcomes for workforce improvement, all diagnostic activity is objective and without bias. Unlike other diagnostic tools, Talent Labs don’t generalise competencies across an organisation, instead they measure capabilities of set roles.
After Brett Martin employees participated in multiple interventions that measured them against desired competencies, such as time-restricted role plays and presentations, it became evident that there were leadership and management skills gaps amongst some of the other managers. Due to the prior success experienced, four additional managers at ‘Head of’ or equivalent level were enrolled on The Managers OPEN Programme.
The programme significantly improved the individuals’ leadership skills, self-awareness and strategic thinking, resulting in higher productivity and success within their roles. Not only this, it also aided retention as 100% of the managers who attended the programme still work at Brett Martin.
“The OPEN Programme for Managers was quite simply an excellent experience for me. As a new manager, I took away a clearer understanding of the role of leadership in my business and learned and practiced several approaches that I could implement straight away to motivate my team and improve their performance. Discovery’s approach to leadership development is second to none. Their wealth of expertise, not only in leadership & motivation, but as experienced coaches and facilitators is inspiring in itself. I would highly recommend this programme to any manager looking to become a highly effective leader.”
By developing their managers ‘The Discovery Way’, Brett Martin significantly improved performance and development within the managers’ career journeys; the first leader to attend was even recommended for a future position on the board. The investment in their professional development also contributed to retention rates, with 100% of the first Brett Martin managers to attend The Managers OPEN Programme, still working at the company.
In addition to the individual success and development experienced, the department were much more engaged with the leader, which produced exceptional results.
