Why book this course?
Nobody is born a leader. Managing people is a learning process, and one which may come with its fair share of pitfalls. Sometimes, you may not be given the time or space to capitalise on your mistakes, and turn your weaknesses into strengths. Other times, you may simply hit a brick wall in your development, and not see a way forward to greater success.
Our Management Development Programme combines broad lessons with a personal, incisive approach. Starting with your own personal development, we'll hone in on your unique attributes, and make sure that you can manage yourself before you manage others. You'll then learn the finer points of motivation and delegation, and how to execute on your plans and objectives.
Who is the course for?
Designed for middle and experienced managers looking to expand their confidence, knowledge and skills base, this course leads you through three days of intensive training and theory, preparing you to apply what you've learned to the workplace.
After 12 weeks, you'll be invited back for a one-day catch-up session, where you can share what you've achieved, what has and hasn't worked, and the areas in which you need further support and guidance. All of this will be led by our experienced trainers, with an emphasis on your personal development and the lessons that are relevant to you.
