TakeON! Management Matters


Published on

TakeON! Management Matters turns traditional organisational development on its head. The core focus of these manager conversations is engaging management teams with new skills and knowledge, and empowering them with the tools and resources to put this into practice immediately with their teams.

It involves a series of bite-sized learning themes (3–4 hr sessions) which use TakeON! tools and methodology to help teams explore new people management concepts, and apply practical tools in their work

Developed from our experience of creating and delivering leadership programmes with large and complex organisations, TakeON! Management Matters is an easy to implement program with multiple themes that can be selected and interchanged to help build the skills that will best deliver the business strategy.

TakeON! Management Matters– Why it works…

* Builds on current strengths and what is working now.
* Tackles challenges in manageable bite sized pieces to achieve real resolution before moving on to the next issue.
* Senior managers set the context and can maintain transparency over how issues are being addressed.
* Shifts the focus towards constant, incremental change – quick wins build confidence and momentum across the organisation.

  4. 4. WHY IT WORKS Key TakeON! principles underpin the approach DIALOGUE VS. DOWNLOAD By involving leaders in constructive dialogue, rather than one-way download, we achieve greater buy-in and traction. Through the sharing of real and relevant experiences, managers learn from each other, as well as from core materials and resources. LEADER LED Our approach is to transfer skill and competency to your managers to make them self-sufficient. Participants essentially do-it- themselves, by facilitating their own learning, and that of their colleagues, within a couple of months. RELEVANT Learning is put into context by applying it to the challenges the business is currently facing. Research says managers learn most when they are actually doing the job, therefore the focus is on applying the tools and the learning immediately. Less theory, more practice! SUSTAINABLE Many programmes are three-day intensive training sessions. It’s great when you’re there, but the learning soon fades. Here, concise-but-regular delivery modules ensure that the learning stays fresh, and momentum is created. Download Debate Dialogue “The last 12 months have been the most challenging of my career.
