Senior Management Team Development Programme
A Programme with a clear Focus:
Having met with the Plant Manager- Liam Hynes and the HR Manager Ber Fennessy we developed a 2 day programme in Delphi Lodge in Connemara. The focus of the development programme was to create, develop and sustain a high performance Management team.
The core objectives of the workshop were to:
- To investigate and challenge how we can become more effective for the business through teamwork.
- To measure where we are now and where we need to go to become a High(er) performance team
- To put quantifiable objectives with a clear action plan in place to deliver this to our team
Approach and Methodology
The programme was designed to be interactive and combined discussions with specifically designed outdoor team tasks. After each task there was a structured review that enabled the team to reflect on how their behaviours impacted on the success or failure of the task. Finally the team were encouraged to apply how the learning needed to be applied back in the business
“The experience took away all the barriers that are so often present and allowed us to focus on the things that were going to make a difference- The team” Ber Fennessey HR Manager
The outdoor tasks and review sessions were also supplemented by a number of indoor working sessions

“Not alone was the programme great fun but the level of facilitation enabled us to grow and develop as a team in a way that I don’t think could be achieved in a traditional learning environment.” Liam Hynes
