Leadership Espresso: Making the Most of Your Team


About the session

Supporting leaders to understand the role that they play in career development and retention and providing them with key practical skills to implement these with confidence within the context of their current role.  

What will be covered

By the end of the session participants will have;  

  • – Increased their confidence in having career development and retention focussed conversations with team members (measured at the start and end of the module)  
  • – Explored the factors that contribute to retention levels and plan their work accordingly (this may also include participants considering their own organisations requirements for written Retention or Talent Management Plans)  
  • – Practiced having different conversations using different frameworks:  
  • – Facilitating change (Enabling people to choose to grow and change themselves whenever possible, and work effectively when change feels imposed)  
  • – Working with ambivalence and uncertainty (How to support individuals with talent to stay in the same place/role and still be effective & motivated).  
  • – Exploring where the individual is (Really understand the people in your team in order to support and develop them)  
  • – Discussing ways of gaining and changing perspective (encouraging a growth mind-set and problem-solving approach)  
  • – Plan to apply all of the above with their teams in an inclusive way to maximise benefits for individuals, teams and the people they support
