This module provides opportunities for participants to develop specific behavioural skills which will be of lasting value to them at work. Emphasis will be on practice and theory will be used to underpin application.
Throughout the week reference will be made to real world circumstances and dilemmas. Participants will be encouraged to learn from each other and to take the opportunities presented.
This approach depends upon willingness to tackle developmental behavioural issues judged by the participant and nominating organisation to be of importance to the success of their business.
An in-company briefing for each participant is required before attendance: at this meeting manager/sponsor and participant will agree a set of personal behavioural objectives, written down as a learning contract, which may extend beyond the known requirements of the current job.
On completion, the participant will be able to:
- Recognise effective behaviour in a range of settings
- Describe their own learning style preferences and understand individual differences and needs
- Identify personal learning blocks and ways to deal with them
- Demonstrate choice and use of appropriate skills, e.g. in personal organisation; interpersonal relations; working in formal and informal groups and teams; and handling meetings, large forums and conferences
- Apply knowledge and skills to better manage organisational complexity
- Implement a personal plan of continued skills improvement
- Organisational and Business Context and Personal Learning
- Recognising and Resolving Personal Blocks
- How to Choose and Use Key Skills for Effective Behaviour
- Simulations and Exercises, including a Learning Log
- Managing Organisational Context and Complexity
- Individual Responsibility for Growth and Development
- Processes for Achieving Continuous Development
An in-company follow-up meeting will review progress and renew the learning contract as part of a longer term development plan.
