Renew Your Organisation!

A new one-day workshop providing a pathway to motivated staff and enhanced results

Does your organisation...

… lack direction?
… have little sense of organisational unity?
… suffer from flagging staff morale?
... get mired in bureaucracy and process at the expense of results and common sense?
… find it difficult to make anything happen or get anything done?
… have separate ‘silos’ which don’t communicate with each other?
… have a general atmosphere of scepticism where people feel under-valued?

Renew Your Organisation! is a practical, hands-on workshop for those whose business, company or department is not all that it might be.

In Renew Your Organisation! you learn:

* how to drive change not only into, but through, your organisation
* the 3 steps in the renewal process
* the 6 guiding principles for performance
* how to use tools to identify your stakeholder's needs and wants
* a method for mapping and using the forces pressing on your organisation
* a technique to pinpoint and influence the key people impacting your organisation
* what does – and doesn’t – motivate staff and boost morale
* the common pitfalls associated with many renewal and change efforts, and how to avoid them
* how to create a self-renewing organisation.

Renew Your Organisation! picks the eyes out of the best management theory and practice, drawing on psychology, strategy and performance improvement. Rather than starting from abstract ideas it deals with the real issues confronting executives, managers and staff. It provides you with the tools to effect change in your organisation and then gives you the chance to apply them.

Renew Your Organisation! is not just a workshop: it’s a means to kick-start the reinvigoration of your organisation.
