Leading HR consultancy People Matters HR has started a Leadership training course, designed to help businesses achieve greater profitability though a happier, more productive workforce.
People Matters HR CEO, Niel Cope, is delivering the intensive leadership program consisting of 6, half-day workshops, each of which focusses on specific areas of leadership and has been specifically written to address the challenges faced by businesses today.
The People Matters Leadership course is the product of many years’ experience in delivering highly successful programmes in to businesses across the North west and beyond. The team have a full understanding of the areas that need improvement and how to changes can be made – and quickly.
People Matters CEO Niel Cope explains more:
“In these challenging times, more than ever before business need strong leadership. When employees have confidence in their leaders, they put in more time, work creatively, and engage with customers and teammates. Morale is high and business is buoyant.
“If employees don’t have that faith and they lack confidence in the senior team, the mood in the workplace can become low and on the back of that, the business will typically suffer.
“What we find is that far too often, companies put people into leadership positions without any guidance. These workers receive instructions and expectations without any mentorship. By using professional leadership and development training regularly, you’ll have more people leading others while abiding by the current policies and procedures – leading to a happier, more productive workforce and ultimately, organisation”.
“The course is particularly useful for managers and leaders who have moved into a role by promotion or recruitment who have received little if any, training in how to lead people. Incorporating leadership development into your organisational routine can correct the downward spiral of non-engagement. It works to motivate your top executives, engage the leaders, and improve your culture. After all – when you have a positive atmosphere that people enjoy, retention levels start rising.
