Developing management abilities is key to the growth of both the individual and the company. It is imperative that new supervisors and managers acquire a foundation of relevant skills upon which to build their career. Companies also need managers to motivate and drive teams; there is a huge benefit in terms of work and time saved by managers who are confident in what they’re doing and who can motivate teams to accomplish what they have planned.
Delegates will be given a competency tool to identify leadership and management actions. This development tool is used throughout the programme to plan next steps and monitor growth, both in practical terms and for future learning.
A blend of highly interactive training exercises and expert teaching, this programme delivers and embeds the key skills needed to succeed in management. Facilitated learning outcomes are matched with capturing individuals’ objectives to make for real and practical learning. Reflection, self-awareness, and time to develop strategies enables transformation. All this activity is supported by action planning and profiling tools. A unique combination of theory and practice makes for powerful and sustained development.
