Professor Anne Lytle
Professor Lytle has been educating and coaching executives on managing performance for more than 15 years. Anne’s training and development philosophy is to work with managers on the real issues and challenges they face. Based on decades of evidence-based research on motivation and the factors that both enhance and inhibit individual and team performance, Professor Lytle’s managing people workshops are uniquely tailored according to each client’s objectives. She uses a combination of:
- engaging action learning activities
- role plays
- small and large group discussions
- 360 degree feedback
- content sessions
- live case study analysis
- individual and small group coaching
- case-in-point learning.
Especially in the area of managing people, Anne focuses on the development of concrete action plans with accountability for each participant to maximise the sustainability of behavioural change.
As in all of Professor Lytle’s training and development initiatives, she strives to deliver value to her clients beyond the fun and informative workshop. The main objective is to create visible behavioural change for each participant.
There is no question that sustainable behavioural change in any competency area is not easy. It requires practice and repetition to reprogram the neuronal pathways in the brain. In all of her workshops, Dr Lytle attacks this problem head-on. She encourages participants to engage in the practice of “doing something differently” through the creation of concrete action plans which promote accountability.
In addition, she works with clients to diagnose the structures, systems and environments surrounding participants that will support or inhibit the desired changes. Follow-up is critical and Dr Lytle works with clients to create sustainable organisational or peer support structures to maximise the application of learning and knowledge long after the workshop is over.
