High employee turnover is one of the key factors affecting businesses and creating disruptions. In a tight labour market, maintaining your best employees becomes a critical success factor. The cost of an elevated employee turnover is many times unsustainable in the longer term. Moreover, increasing wages is not the only tool available for business leaders to reduce employee turnover.

Specific topics to be covered during the sessioN

  • The basics needs to decrease employee turnover – Leadership, Teamwork and Effective Communication
  • What is Leadership really about?
  • Emotional Intelligence and Leadership
  •  Managing Change through leadership
  • Why is communication so hard?
  • Communicating through our filter
  •  Interpersonal communication skills we need to master
  •  Importance of Listening
  •  Overcoming barriers to Communication
  •  Importance of Non-Verbal Communication
  •  How can you persuade others?
  •  What are the essential components of a Team?
  •  Four Stages of Team Development
  • What determines a High Performing team?
  • How to communicate in teams
  • Delegating effectively: Avoiding the plague of Micromanagement

Why is the session of relevance to our members?

Many MIA members are financial controllers or CFOs of leading businesses in Malta. Many financial controllers have even difficulty in maintaining the employees in their own finance teams, besides having to face the elevated costs of high employee turnover. So reducing employee turnover is in everyone’s interest.

Target Audience

All persons owning or in a leadership position in a business, including accountants
