Helping managers promote smart, sustainable working.
Sustainable engagement is the key to business performance – a combination of high motivation and low stress. Supporting managers to understand and support their teams is key to achieving high productivity and good staff health.
Mindapples teaches managers practical insights from neuroscience & psychology to help them motivate staff, tap into diverse skills, manage stress and promote innovation and collaboration.
This programme is aimed at anyone with line management responsibilities, particularly new managers, and provides an essential grounding on managing people and developing teams. This is a fresh, innovative approach to develop your managers and help your people work smarter and feel better.
What we cover
This programme covers six key topics. Sessions are fully interactive and delivered in weekly 90-minute seminars, or three half day workshops, for up to 20 participants. They can be delivered as classroom sessions at your offices, or via telepresence or webinars as preferred, and all the sessions are also available as one-off masterclasses.
01 MANAGE YOUR MIND
If you know your own mind, you can get more done and feel better. This introductory module gives managers a basic grounding in how our minds work, what they need to thrive, and how to build your daily routine to get the best from yourself and others.
02 Lead diverse teams
Selecting the right people, and developing the people you have, is a daily challenge for managers. This module introduces the science of what makes each of us unique and explores how we can build diverse, balanced teams and help people work to their potential.
03 MOTIVATE people
Motivating staff is the most important ingredient of transformational management. Demotivated staff will be less creative, less productive, and less happy. This module explores the science behind motivation, and reveals the three key ingredients that make people eager to work.
04 MANAGE PRESSURE & STRESS
Stress and setbacks are an inevitable part of modern life, but they need to be managed. Learn to spot the signs of stress, find out how good management practice can reduce stress in teams, and practise simple techniques for supporting people who are stressed or unwell.
05 Communicate & collaborate
Our minds work better together. If we communicate well and structure our collaboration effectively, we can be more than the sum of our parts. Learn how to communicate clearly, resolve conflicts smoothly, and chair meetings effectively to get the best from your staff.
06 LEAD CREATIVE TEAMS
Businesses that fail to innovate are increasingly being left behind in a changing market. Good managers can promote creativity in their teams and find fresh solutions to old problems. Learn the key ingredients of creativity and start bringing them into your workplace.
