Insight

There are a number of learning options here starting with;

Supervising The Team
This three-day workshop style course introduces general supervisory skills, with particular emphasis on the human relations aspects of the supervisors role and the interpersonal skills required to make the transition from subordinate to supervisor.

Managing for Results

This three-day programme is based on the concept that there is more than one way to lead, and introduces managers to the skills required to achieve increased team performance.

The Leading Edge
This programme consists of four stand alone modules which have been dsigned to give today's managers not only the flexibility in approach to their own development but also to equip them with the skills necessary to give both them and their organisation the leading edge.

 

If you are serious about more effective performance, Edison have one of the most effective approaches. This programme of learning will take the best people and make them better. And take mediocre performing people and turn them into effective leaders.

OUR APPROACH TO DEVELOPING YOUR PEOPLE

When investing in development, organizations often focus on the individual. What can a manager do to be more effective, have more impact and improve business performance? Yet effective individuals don't always mean an effective team. In high performing teams, team members work well together and share the same goals. The team's purpose is based on what the business needs, and the collective performance is greater than the individual's.

We have four great approaches to support your development work. Used together they develop individual managers and improve the performance of a management team.  Perfect for a complete team development programme: 

 

Infuencing Strategies Workshop
  Managerial Styles Workshop
  Organisational Climate Workshop 
  Opitimising Team Development Workshop


The managerial style workshop and organizational climate workshop are a quick and simple way for managers to start thinking about how they motivate others. Is their style of managing creating the right climate for their team to be productive and engaged? These workshops give managers a chance to understand, and improve, their own managerial style and then reflect on the impact they have on their team.

The optimizing team development workshop  
offers a framework to help a team focus its efforts to improve performance. Using the classic Beckhard model of team effectiveness, it explores the team's approach to goals, roles, processes and relationships.

IS YOUR TEAM A TRUE TEAM OR JUST A SIMPLE WORKING GROUP? Find out?

The influence strategies workshop 
will develop the nine key strategies an individual can use to influence their direct reports, their peers, and vitally, the key stakeholders within the wider organization.This is a great addition to your development work!

Why Use Pathfinder?
It can be stimulating and even enlightening to receive feedback— especially multi-rater competency feedback. However, many people have difficulty knowing what to do with their feedback once it is received. What is it telling them? Where should it take them? And, it is no easy task to create a development plan that people feel committed to. Once the plan is developed, it may be harder still to carry out the plan and monitor and update personal pathfinderdevelopment progress.

Pathfinder makes the development process easier and more fun than if the individual attempted to find his or her way alone. Personal development is a process and a journey. Rarely do people make meaningful progress on their development goals in less than a year's time. For this reason Pathfinder is a one-year programme with the ability to renew the subscription as often as needed or desired. Although the Pathfinder is designed so that any individual can use the site, those who are taking part in ongoing coaching will achieve the greatest success. The coach will be there to answer questions, clarify feedback, and provide direction and support for the development plan.

WHAT IS AN ECI?

Our coaching programmes are initially generated from the Emotional Competence Inventory (ECI). Prior to being assigned a coach, each individual carries out an ECI to assess their current emotional competencies. An reportemotional competence is a learned capacity based on emotional intelligence that results in outstanding performance at work. For superior performance in jobs of all kinds, emotional competence matters twice as much as IQ plus technical skill combined.

Your team may be producing results, but how much better could they be?

How would you answer that question, well that's where Edison Personal Development can help. Our pro-assess competency and benchmarking process can help your organisation get fit for any project. Developed directly from the experienced gained from working in a number of different markets and also recently updated to take account of changing market trends, pro-assess will help your organisation identify not only how it will measure up to the market you sell in, but how it will also compare to our increasing data from organisations that have recently used pro-assess from a wide range of industries.
