MGB Advisory Growth Hub Workshop round 4, 2019
People performance – how to do less but get more from your people in 2020.
28th November 2019
In our latest thought-provoking workshop,we looked at emerging trends in people performance and took time to problem solve a real-life challenge facing each of our attendees. The theme of the day was “How to do less and achieve more”.

Finally, attendees brought with them their biggest team or people challenge,leveraging the brain power of their peers and the Mindshop tools to do some serious problem-solving, and walked away with clear strategies to make an immediate difference back at the office.
The challenges we covered on the day for clients were;
All our sessions are highly practical, we spend time discussing and developing strategies and transforming them into actions to take away and implement for an immediate impact on our attendees’ business.
