Stabilising Teams in Crisis
Running a team is not easy to do well. Helping a team reach its peak performance is harder. Doing so while meeting everyone’s personal development needs is harder still. Taking on a team that is on the verge of collapse is one of the hardest things I have had to deal with professionally.
During this talk we will cover a few techniques that will help you combat very low team morale and impending attrition. These are most useful for line managers and people in a caretaking role but it will also be helpful for those in other roles. I will also cover how to go past this stage and start forging a team that is invested in growing, supporting its members and building for its future success.
This talk is suitable for people at any stage in their career who want to work in a collaborative and fulfilling environment.
Moreton is a delivery manager at Mitrefinch, a HR firm with very ambitious goals for the future.
