In the world of professional sport, effective communication and teamwork are vital for success. Learning first-hand the importance of these qualities, I now use these past experiences to pass on relevant skills in my Workshops.
Whether it is effectively communicating styles and tactics on the training ground or imparting quick and concise information onto the field of play on game day, clear communication to everyone is often the difference between success and failure.
One of the main responsibilities of managers is effective communication to their teams, and yet it is often an area which is overlooked in both the sporting and business environments.
Effective communication can help to foster a good working relationship between you and your staff, which can in turn improve morale, efficiency and performance.
Today’s business world relies on relationships in so many ways. Selling and delivering products or services without excellent communication skills can be a huge problem. The ability to make those around you feel valued is a powerful motivator and a recipe for success.
Building goals and objectives is a great way to involve staff, working with them to define the goals and objectives of the business.
The simple fact is that Teamwork helps solve problems, build rapport and deliver results, a winning combination for any organisation.
Workshops can be offered in person or online.
I believe that every business should be using workshops at least quarterly.
As the saying goes “Find a job you love and you’ll never have to work a day in your life”. Happy staff tend to work better as a group, be more productive, and more enthusiastic about work. Workshops are a great way of engaging staff to work in a team environment, aligning to the company’s vision.
Often, I find that a light hearted workshop can break down the barriers between employees and management, making lines of communication more open and effective.
Workshops can be geared towards either a single message or goal, or developed into a longer offering that an organisation or department are targeting. They can last anywhere from a single morning or afternoon session up to a full week.
Generally, workshops are aimed towards giving attendees the chance to learn new skills and develop their abilities in a more relaxed setting, this is most commonly done as a single day workshop.
A good workshop should be tailored towards the clients needs.
Prior to delivering a workshop, I will spend time working with the client to establish exactly what they want from the workshop. I can then develop it to make sure that this message is clearly delivered throughout.
