Management Skills Training
From newly appointed managers to those who have been in harness for a while, good management skills are essential for success.
Too often good people start off with high hopes and expectations but end up either leaving their management role or becoming demotivated.
That doesn't need to happen.
Tailored Management Training
Managing people doesn't have to be daunting or difficult, but it often happens that good people don't develop the skills they need and end up becoming mediocre or even poor managers.
Our Management Training focuses on stopping that from happening and preparing managers to succeed right from the beginning.
It's important to know that you're not alone in this: good people get promoted and there is an assumption that because they have been good in one job they will automatically be good in a management role.
We start our management training by squashing that assumption and get down to the truth that all managers need some basic skills to help them be a success in the job.
Tailored and In-House Management Training
Our Management Training Programmes can be tailored as in-house programmes to address specific issues within your own company.
Key issues that managers struggle with are:
Doing it all instead of delegating
Feeling they have to look busy all the time to justify their role
Wanting to be 'one of the boys/girls' instead of managing them
Avoiding conflict and not intervening when it's needed
Inadequately managing their own and other's time
Hiding in the detail instead of getting strategic
Now not everyone does all of these but our management training programmes are designed to give managers (old and new) more confidence in their own abilities to be able to tackle some of the traps they fall into.
We help people shift their beliefs about what a manager is supposed to do and we look at key management skills such as:
Motivating and supporting team members
Giving essential feedback
Keeping people on board
Becoming more decisive
Learning how to feed upwards
Establishing clear boundaries
Setting and achieving team and individual goals
You may have people in your company who are excellent in their jobs but when they get promoted to the next rung up seem to lose that excellence and end up being less than great managers.
Some of these people, we know, often leave because it's all too stressful or go back to the jobs they had before.
It may be that you've recruited some new managers but they need more of a grounding in first-rate line management skills to prepare them for their roles.
It could also be that you have highly skilled managers who have been around a while and you'd like them to refresh their competencies and polish up their knowledge.
Our Management Training programmes can be tailored for first-line, middle and senior managers.
They can be tailored for the newest recruits and the longest-serving managers.
The aim of our management training programmes is to re-energise people and help them become the best manager they can be with the skills to back them up.
