    Packed full of practical tips, tools and techniques, you will find yourself quickly stirred into action while reading.

    Description Return Policy
    Are you managing and leading a team of people?

    Have you ever:

    • Felt like tearing your hair out when people in your team don’t behave the way you want them to?
    • Wished you could “get things done right … the first time”?
    • Been frustrated by under-performing team members?
    • Wanted to reduce the amount of time you spend doing or re-doing your team members’ work?
    • Wondered how some team leaders maintain a high level of commitment from their teams while avoiding stress and burn out?
    • Had to lead a team of people who were at different developmental levels, and wanted to ensure that you were a consistent yet flexible leader?
    • Wondered how the inspirational leader maintains a high level of commitment from their team while avoiding stress and burn out?
    • Lost a high-performing team member because they were bored with the job?
    • Wondered what could be done to ensure your team members’ morale remains high?
    • Had to lead a team of people who were at different developmental levels and wanted to ensure that you were a consistent, yet flexible leader?
    • Delivered feedback to a team member that they took the wrong way?
    • Considered how much easier your job would be as a leader if you had a highly competent and completely committed team working with you?

    If you ticked any of the above then you’re certainly wouldn’t be the first to do so!

    Many team leaders and managers find themselves caught in a vicious circle of day-to-day business. This leaves them with little or no time for tasks like planning, strategy, developing tactics, establishing systems and developing the ability and motivation of their team.

    If you answered “Yes” to any of the above, then you’ll love the results you’ll get with “Practical Performance Improvement”.

    • How to effectively deal with difficult attitudes
