Why did I use ELT?
I am a new manager to my department, and my team is split across 2 offices. I wanted to bring my team together and develop productive team relationships to overcome the physical barrier of locations, while also being able to assess what type staff I have within my team.
When you say ‘teambuilding’ staff think of workplace meeting rooms, sticking post-it notes on walls, desk based games, and questionnaires telling you what type of animal you are. While these are good ways to teach the theory of leadership and teamwork, it doesn’t actually challenge people and get them work together as a team, and if I’m honest, staff find it boring.

We conducted a 5 day practical and theory based Managers evaluation and planning Course and asked the delegates to give us feedback on all aspects of the course.
We also asked them to score the areas with feedback 5 being excellent and 1 being bad, and they have scored 5 out of 5 in all areas.
Very informative tutorial, good slides and practical exercises. The 2 Andys’ very professional, helpful and supportive.

The Day allowed me to see that planning a job makes completing the task easier. Our communication as a team will improve as we rely on each other. Our efforts today have been joint efforts and as a result success. Good information to take away which I see can be introduced into every day tasks.
Overall found the day very useful, we have been offered a different method of planning and a more structured manner. Activities were well organized and varied enough not to feel repetitive. Intermittent evaluations of what we were doing/had done were useful to encourage better planning.
I found the day extremely interesting and informative it gave everyone chance to show ones leadership qualities. Instructors were very good and extremely friendly. A very good day.
