Development Centres


I am responsible for a Customer Service area and most of our staff have been with the company for less than 18 months. I am looking for development centres to work with with the intention of developing the staff into managers/mentors/trainer roes and to create their own personal development plans. Our existing Customer Service team managers also need to be developed within their roles and as people. Any ideas?

    Dear Donna
    I have experience designing and running development centres for developing the capability of managers and would suggest you start by trying to define the competencies which you are hoping to develop. Activities can then be tailored to these competencies and you can design in ways to give staff feedback which lead into PDPs . I am happy to discus with you further.

    We have an approach that develops line managers at the same time as the participants. We call them talent centres – line managers work as observers rather than assessors. Assessment is self and peer driven and supported by coaching from observers. Call me on 07703 576670 if you would like some more information
