Managing People online course:
Episode 7. Managing Talent

When the team are doing a good job, helping them develop may not seem like a priority. In fact, it’s more important than ever. Good leadership never stops, even when things are working fine. And reminding your team members of how much you value them is key to keeping talent where you want it – in your business.

Managing Talent course

Help your team get better and better

In this episode, we look at ways to help your team develop – in terms of skills and internal job opportunities. There may not always be an immediate opportunity for career progression, but keeping your team engaged, motivated and inspired is the best way to retain talent and make sure everyone feels valued. And of course, you need to make sure the same is being done for you.

Episode 7: The story

Charlotte’s three-month probation period review is coming up. She’ll be looking at what she’s achieved, what her team has achieved, and the overall impact on the business. One thing she knows she’s learned for sure is that there will always be new challenges to solve – one being that a valued member of the deli, Anna, has been offered a role with a rival company. As you reflect on what she knows about the team and Rise and Dine so far, can you help her think of ways to convince Anna to stay?

Key takeaways from this episode

  • How to make sure your team don’t just feel valued, but are valued
  • Ways to restructure a team, for the benefit of them and the business
  • Ability to reflect on your own performance, and find areas for self-improvement

Love a challenge?

The learner makes many important decisions on Charlotte’s behalf during the course.

The Rise and Dine team

Skills served up fresh at the Rise and Dine

Welcome to Rise and Dine – a fictional cafe with a whole lot of real-world challenges. In each course, you’ll make decisions for their new manager, Charlotte. She needs to turn the team around and restore the cafe to its former glory.

While our story takes place in a cafe, the situations Charlotte faces will be familiar to any manager, in any sector. We guarantee your managers will relate all-too-well to her plights – and be invested in helping her succeed.

What to expect from the whole approach

It starts with a Quick Skills Check to show your managers’ skills now. Then a blend of online learning and remote coaching/facilitated sessions. Next, Mastery Checks show what behaviour change has started to happen. It’s all brought together with a final ‘Where next?’ coaching session, to review and launch their further development. The final evaluation comes from assessing the impact of the coaching, combined with feedback from the courses. Pick what works for you.
