Gemma – Ingleton Wood attendee of our Management Academy
What was your favourite part of the academy and why? I liked how we started the session with guest speakers from our Practice on that week’s specific topic, it cemented the support we have from our leaders. Laura was a great facilitator, she made me feel comfortable, listened to what we contributed and gave great feedback. She kept the sessions flowing and was always a positive presence.
What module had the biggest impact on you and why? The productivity session and rearranging your day around your low energy and high energy periods has been really helpful, and also giving your employees the empowerment to do the same. The focus techniques to concentrate on your day and that you don’t always have to say yes to tasks.
How has what you learnt during the academy impacted your professional life? To focus on building relationships with your staff and to listen before speaking. Communication is key and having those difficult conversations is important, but that it is only a conversation, and it is how you frame your question that can change the engagement in the meeting. I am more focused now and mindful of my own emotional intelligence and my self-awareness and self-reflection and what is important to consider to develop a high performing team. I also very much liked the wellbeing session and that a little stress is good for you, but to be aware of your signs when it has gone too far, as well as that of your team.
Would you recommend the academy to others? I would recommend this academy to new managers just starting out, but also for current managers to re-focus them in things they may have forgotten.
