Management Training

Tailored Management Training

Our management training programs can be tailored as in-house programs to address specific issues within your company.

We figure that most people who end up managing others hadn't planned to do so and can benefit from management training.

Surveys verify that managers tend to fall into the role rather than choosing it as a career option.

It tends to go like this: someone applies for a job that looks very interesting; they interview well, get the job and begin their new working life.

This can apply to all professions: software developers to secretaries to telesales to marketeers.

After a year or two (or in some cases less) management notices how good someone is at what they do and they decide to promote that person into a management role.

They believe that if they are good at their current job, they'll surely be good at managing others to do the same thing.

Wrong

Or rather, wrong sometimes.

Sometimes, what happens is that when getting promoted, the skills that were valued in their previous role become of secondary importance to management skills the person doesn't have.

It isn't exactly the Peter Principle where people are promoted to their level of incompetence.

More, it's like the Oh-Gosh,-What-Do-I-Do-Now? Principle, where people are promoted because of their competency but aren't then given the training and backing they need to do the job well.

We actually think it's quite bizarre really that something so important for organisations as the management of their people is left to chance.

The jump from being managed to managing can be significant and yet time and again, good people fail in management roles because they haven't got the basic skills that would see them succeed (and succeed well) as managers.

One of these recent surveys said that half of UK workers who leave their jobs (voluntarily as opposed to being made redundant) do so because of bad managers.

And it is not surprising that the UK spends less money on management training than our global competitors. Sad, but not surprising.

After all this gloomy news, the really, really good news is that our training for managers is accessible, straight-forward and when run well, lots of fun!

At Impact Factory we have a range of management training offers to help new and experienced managers get better at their jobs:

  • Line Management
  • Senior Management

As well as running training programs, we are easy to talk to and happy to have a chat about your manager training needs.

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.

We offer management training in London and across the UK.

The aim of our management training programmes is to re-energise people, helping them become the best managers they can be with the skills they need to succeed.

Management Training Skills

C Conflict Management Training

Many people manage conflict by avoiding it.

Whether it's workplace disputes, difficult people or unresolved conflicts the thing to aim is resolution, otherwise, what's the point?

Here we help people get to the heart of the problem so they can get to the heart of the solution.

C Change Management Training

Any culture, business or Organisational Change eats up consultants and training budgets. The language is frightening. Process engineering, supply cycles, control planning models. What's needed is some understanding of the theory, the effects on jobs and lifestyle and some simple coping strategies.

M 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 expectations and hopes and end up either leaving their management role or becoming mediocre and unmotivated or somewhere in between.

That doesn't need to happen.

P Performance Management Training

Performance Management Appraisals can be a terrific forum for review, development and communication. We take a realistic look at employee and staff Performance Management and Appraisal Interviews.

What form should they take? 360 degree? How critical? How often? What training system works best?

P Project Management Training

Deadlines and expertise ought to create a powerful dynamic to get projects up and running.

Too often, they don't.

Good project management brings all the disparate elements together and unlike trying to herd cats, is a way to draw the best from people, skills and processes.

S Senior Management Training

Our Senior Management Training breaks down the grand title and unpicks what being senior is all about.

Now that you have been recognised as someone who can fulfil your organisations vision and values you are a true leader of others.

M Line Management Training

Line management can mean a lot of things to a lot of people. Whatever the challenges of your line managers, tailored training can help to address specifically where they find it tricky.

Often it’s around delegation, giving difficult feedback and keeping teams motivated, however, each organisation has its own challenges to which we can help to define and deliver a tailored solution.
