"The Take Away Training Film Series" comprises short, practical training films providing managers, supervisors and staff with techniques, advice and ideas on some of the key areas of their job. The series which features 'talking head discussion' between psychologists Eve Ash and Peter Quarry, is designed for learning resource centres and management self-development. When the first titles in the series appeared People Management Journal said: '...one of the main selling points is that they firmly place responsibility for learning with the learner...They could be used either as stand-alone distance learning tools or as part of a training session. I am sure that any viewer will be able to take up their basic principles and apply them.' Sloppy work includes incomplete work, mistakes, poor quality, late delivery and ineffective or unsafe short cuts. This can lead to extra workload for others, poor role models for new team members, customer complaints, increased cost and delays. Managers need to ensure their people deliver high quality work at all times.
In "6 Ways to Prevent Sloppy Work", Psychologist Eve Ash provides a range of strategies and techniques to prevent sloppy work and improve standards. Discover how to: set standards and policies for the company and team; agree on objectives, standards and expectations for individuals; train and coach staff and develop their skills; monitor progress and encourage feedback; manage mistakes effectively; and, recognise and reward good performance.
