Why book this course?

Improving performance is often easier than sustaining those improvements. No matter how good a leader and motivator you are, it’s likely that your techniques won’t hold sway forever. Your team’s performance may dip, and you may find yourself struggling to come up with new ways to motivate and inspire them.

Our two-day Team Leadership & Supervisor Development course will enable you to explore a range of new management techniques with practical, sustainable outcomes. By sharing your problems and learning with your peers, you’ll improve your management abilities and learn new ways to lead, encourage and inspire.

Who is the course for?

This course is best suited to team leaders, section leaders, supervisors and first line managers, as well as anyone else who is charged with leading a group or team.

Learners should be open to learning about new tools and techniques, exploring the process of management and team leadership, and finding new ways to get the best out of all their team members.

What is my experience?

I have been fortunate enough to have worked across the globe, with over 20 years in senior management and training roles. Throughout this time, I have gained a wealth of experience working across a diverse range of teams, cultures, and industries.

My roles in learning and development have been across both the private and public sector. These included working as a European Training Manager, based in Italy, as well as Senior Lecturer, delivering customer service training to NVQ's levels 2 & 3. Whilst working as Head of Training at a Kent based consultancy, I also headed up the delivery of ILM programmes and became the Internal Verifier for all courses up to level 7.

In 2006 I launched my own Training and Business Consultancy, allowing me to incorporate my knowledge of Business Management with Training. My focus since then has been on developing and delivering bespoke Personal Development and Management training courses for not only SME’s but right through to large corporations and public sector.

What is my area of expertise?

I oversee the Kent Trainers training programmes, including the Leadership and Management programmes, which are accredited by The Institute of Leadership and Management. I maintain a keen interest in keeping our focus on delivering high quality, consistently relevant courses.

Specialist areas I cover include:
Management and Leadership
Performance Management
Customer Service
Team Development
Coaching and Mentoring
Personal Development

Why I love inspiring others?

I have a passion and enthusiasm for training which I believe is crucial to any training environment.  I believe in giving inspiring, thought provoking training that is not only engaging but can be utilised in real life, whether that is in business or life in general.
