Join Wayne Clarke, formerly a partner leading the “Best Companies” consultancy team and now of the Global Growth Institute share some insights from research as to what makes a World Class Manager. What do successful managers do that increases employee engagement and delivers improved performance?
Translating strategy into action has never been easy. However, we’ve learnt that just about every organisation on the planet ‘knows how’ but isn’t able to scale that knowledge. Managers and of course leadership teams are the key as the best ones have managed to crack this code. We’ll look practically at how we can identify and replicate this essential best practice across our organisations.
