Infinis is a constantly evolving business that needs to respond to an ever changing commercial environment. Their managers need a wide range of skills in order to keep the business agile and at the forefront of their field.
Elan Valley Lodge was tasked with the design and delivery of their “High Performance Programme” for managers and those with management potential. They key objective was to enable individuals to explore their strengths and weaknesses in an open environment that would enable them to be clear about what they need to do differently to improve their capability as a manager for Infinis.
Based at the Lodge for four days we explored:
- Communication skills
- Time management
- Prioritising workload
- Supporting and challenging colleagues
- The EVL key conditions for developing and maintaining effective teams.
Throughout the programme the discussions were focussed around the application of these topics in work situations at Infinis.
At the end of the programme each manager created a personal plan detailing which of the management tools they would seek to develop over the coming months, what support they would need and what the business benefits would be.
A follow up session 12 weeks after the programme celebrated the considerable successes and helped the managers take their thinking even further.
The team at Elan Valley are extremely professional, customer focussed, and utilise every last piece of their skill and knowledge to ensure all learners take advantage of the myriad of opportunities that such a facility naturally presents. The post event support has been equally excellent.
I would not hesitate to endorse Roy and his team in the strongest possible terms.
