Aim Higher

Higher performing managers are motivated by advanced professional development opportunities and a clear pathway to promotions. Being in this eclectic group, higher performing managers want challenging and tailored professional development programs. They want interesting tasks and recognition.


A big challenge is how to avoid these higher performers becoming bored and jumping ship. Or even worse, behavioural scientists have coined a phrase “quitters and stayers”. This is where your higher performing managers stay with your organisation but they just do the bare minimum to meet your performance targets. All their discretionary time (which could be yours) is spent pursuing other cognitive and rewarding pursuits.

Imagine the difference if your high achievers and high potentials managers worked collaboratively with your people and as a cohesive group. And collectively they raised the performance lid for the entire organisation. This unique program will give you valuable insights into the thinking styles and motivation styles of high achieving managers.
