Managing the Darkside: Coaching Individuals & Teams Through Derailment

Workshop Description

Leaders are coming under increased pressure to deliver results, which has the potential to increase the level of frustration, pressure, and stress within teams. When it comes to individual personality, the line between what is seen as a key strength or a weakness isn’t always clear. Utilising the Hogan Development Survey (HDS) as the foundation, the workshop will provide participants with invaluable insights into behaviours that can lead to derailment if not managed, and introduce proven coaching skills that can support individuals and teams to enable them to maximise strengths, and achieve their individual and collective goals.

Workshop Duration
