Effective Communication within Teams

Hosted by Jo Hanlon, Mind Your P's

When People work in teams, their impact is magnified be it positively or negatively.

This makes it critical to have a team of People that functions and communicates effectively and efficiently so I hear you ask “what makes a high performing team”?

High performing teams are built on effective conversations and dynamics that allow them to;

  • show vulnerability and trust,
  • engage in productive conflict,
  • have peer to peer accountability, and
  • a joint focus on collective results, all of which may be easier to say than achieve, but together, combine to increase productivity and job satisfaction.

Staff Retention: Setting your team members up for success

Your staff are usually both your biggest risk (apart from COVID-19) and your biggest asset and it usually takes considerable time, effort, investment and occasionally anxiety, sweat and tears, to recruit and retain great team members, only to lose them down the track just when they’ve started adding real value to your business.

Sometimes you can’t do a thing, but other times you can.

In this webinar guest speaker Jo Hanlon, Founder and MD of the boutique HR Coaching & Consulting agency - Mind your P's, shares her insights into what makes a great Manager and exactly what makes your staff tick and how to create an environment for success.

Research has revealed people often leave their Managers not the job, whilst other research shows people leave the job because they’re not enjoying it, but who’s responsible for a large part of the job – the Managers!

Managers will learn the 10 tips on how to set your staff up for success and how to make it a more enjoyable experience within the workplace.

Creating a successful mindset

Presented by Jo Hanlon from Mind your P's

Jo's definition of Mindset is that it includes your internal dialogue and thoughts about yourself, others and your situation, what you make that mean, and how you end up approaching and managing everything in life.
Jo details that they are important to consider, be aware of and actively create, because your Mindset will impact how you approach and live your whole life which is even more important than ever at present.

You may be thinking you have a good handle on your Mindset as it is a common topic being discussed by many at the moment; there are 182 million results in google on the subject, however, Jo's approach is a holistic and widespread one that looks much more broadly at the many pieces that make up what she calls your Mindset Mosaic. By having a more holistic view, you can create a successful Mindset Mosaic that is tailored to your needs and works best for you.

During this webinar, we’ll explore 6 key Mindset Mosaic areas and give you some tools you can use that will help you "on your way" rather than getting "in your way" to achieving a successful Mindset.
