What is Teamwork & How to Achieve it?
What is Teamwork and how can you achieve it? SACS invites you to a highly participative online workshop where we will explain this fascinating topic of human interaction. This two-hour session we will provide you with a clear definition of teamwork. Andrew will give a rundown on the latest research relating to teamwork so you can gain a better understanding of effective team cohesion and how it can improve the performance and morale of teams within your organisations.
During this workshop you will learn about practical science based techniques which will give you a clear understanding on how to recruit for team cohesion. You will also discover which leadership behaviours help foster effective teamwork.
The Challenge of Managing a Distributed Workforce
During this workshop Andrew will explain what we know about how best to manage staff remotely. Here is an opportunity to benefit from an evidence-based perspective on how to maintain well-being and productivity for remote employees.
Workforce Planning for the New Normal
Many organisations are now looking beyond the tactical aspects of surviving the COVID-19 world and are seeking to visualise and strategise what the composition of their workforce is likely to be over the next few years. This is an exercise in workforce planning. Seismic changes that organisations are experiencing right now often require different competency sets. Watch this webinar to learn more about this topic.
Leadership in Tough Times
For many employees across the world times are tough. People are worried about their jobs, worried about their health and the health of their loved once and in many cases are coping with the new challenges of working from home. Resilience is being challenged in a way that it has not been in living memory. Attend this workshop and you will be brought up to date with the latest research on stress, resilience and leader behaviours which optimise coping and productivity. You will come away with initiatives you will be able to use immediately at work.
What Type of Person is Suited to Remote Work?
Businesses are facing unparalleled challenges as a results of the Covid-19 pandemic. One particular obstacle is the mass relocation of staff from their primary office location to a remote working environment in their home. Even before the pandemic organisations have been transitioning to more remote work for flexibility and cost reasons.
While there are clear logistical challenges that this can raise there are also issues around the compatibility of an employee’s psychological makeup with working solely from home. To help organisations understand the likelihood that an employee will thrive in a work from home environment SACS has undertaken a review of the current research on this topic.
Change Without Pain
Worldwide we are currently going through a period of very substantial change. Changes in health, changes in community attitudes, changes in the way that we work and changes in the business models of organisations, just to name a few. Organisations are asking their employees to do things very differently from how they’ve ever done before and to cope with new challenges they’ve never had to face up to before.
View this webinar to learn how to hook into your colleagues’ natural tendency to change and provide much practical advice about how to bring about change whilst retaining the natural energy and enthusiasm of your colleagues. You will also gain an understanding of the latest discoveries relating to change and many practical tips and suggestions about how to plan for and implement change in your own organisation.
