Creating a Great Workplace

A Half Day Seminar - Programme details

Imagine a workplace where people are energised and motivated by being in control of the work they do. Imagine they are trusted and given freedom, within clear guidelines, to decide how to achieve their results. Imagine they are able to get the life balance they want. Imagine they are valued according to the work they do, rather than the time they spend on it.

Wouldn’t you want to work there? Wouldn’t it also be the place that would enable you to work at your best and most productive?



This seminar will challenge you, will suggest new possibilities for workplaces and for the role of managers, and leave you with specific ideas to put into practice straight away.

  • Recognise what enables people to work at their best

  • Discover the ten principles for creating a happy and productive workplace
