TakeON! Management Matters
New Zealand has one of the lowest productivity profiles within the OECD. We’re working long hours and not seeing the growth and rewards of other countries. Key to this is our relatively poor performance as people managers. Getting your managers to ‘step up’ and take ownership of creating a culture that facilitates, rather than hinders, the achievement of your objectives is mission critical to sustained business performance and talent retention. At Blacksmith, we work with people managers and management teams to identify and explore the core competencies, behaviours and skills required to lead and manage teams for success.

Management Matters is for any organisation wanting to strengthen its people leadership. This proven approach delivers rapid, positive change in key people management competencies, giving your people managers greater confidence and capability to lead.
Management Matters is based on ON-Brand Partners’ experience in developing leadership skills in large and complex organisations.
TakeON! Management Matters works because:

Engage, Empower, Excite your leaders
Management Matters offers a structured yet flexible activity framework to engage, empower and excite your people managers. It focuses on specific skill development for first and second line managers turning traditional organisational development on its head.
Using a conversation based approach, a series of bite-sized learning themes (3-4 hr monthly sessions) lets them explore key management concepts. Simple tools and methods are provided, so that managers can start applying these immediately in their work.
