BENEFITS

Increased management leadership effectiveness

Through understanding the logical and interactive Allen Management System™, participants know ‘what’ and ‘how’ to perform Management Work for optimal results.

Speaking a common management language

Using a common Management System ensures that managers talk the same management language and therefore are more effective as a management team.

Increased awareness on effective management leadership behaviours

Understanding the difference between unconscious and conscious behaviours, and the impact of these behaviours on team members and bottom-line results, increases participants’ self-awareness that could potentially drive changes in their management leadership style.

Sharpen planning, organising, leading and controlling skills

This workshop helps participants to contextualise and refine their management knowledge as well as their ability to plan, organise, lead and control resources through core processes towards the achievement of specific measurable results.

Managing performance effectively

Our system’s approach to effectively managing performance provides participants with an easily understandable model and practical templates. By the end of the workshop, participants’ will have completed a first-draft performance contract comprising all six elements of an effective Performance Management system.

Increased problem-solving skills

A key focus of this workshop is on the ability to analyse issues effectively in order to identify the underlying root cause before action plans are developed. Ensuring that real problems rather than symptoms are solved saves money and increases the impact on business operations.
