From Player to Coach:
Making the Successful Transition to Management

With increasing globalization and the move to virtual environments, managing is more complex than ever before. As an organizational psychologist, Dr. Woodward believes that effective management is rooted in understanding the psychology of human nature.
Strategy Matters:
Turning Ideas into Actions
October 3, 2017 with Dr. Thomas Lawton
In this seminar we lay out an integrated and dynamic process for thinking about and doing strategic management. Adopting a strategic approach renders managers better able to make decisions during unstable and uncertain periods and more able to deal with complexity, diversity and varied sources of information both inside and outside their organisations.  The underpinning principle is the balance between change and consistency. To achieve breakthroughs in performance, managers need to recognise and maximise where excellence exists inside the organisation, while at the same time identifying and seizing opportunities outside.

True Drivers of Performance:
Work Smarter, Reduce Stress, Lead By Example
November 14, 2017 with Mr. Steve McClatchy
