If you are a new first line manager, team leader or supervisor or you have never had any formal management training, then this is the course for you.


Course Overview

For any organisation to run at its peak, it requires business managers and team leaders with strong business knowledge and managerial skills.

Management training is often the catalyst to inspire others within the organisation. We provide the participants with the knowledge and skills they will need in an interactive training environment to help them achieve their goals and ambitions and to manage the performance of others.

Our Essential Tools for Managers training course will clarify the responsibilities of the role of a manager and leader and successful techniques for building and motivating a team will be introduced. Participants will learn styles of management and when and how to use them and structures for delegating and correcting employee performance will be identified and practiced.

This training course will review critical communication skills and discuss their application in daily management tasks. Interviewing and selecting staff and setting objectives for performance monitoring and evaluation will be reviewed.

“This course was thoroughly enjoyable and has given me the training that I required as I have been newly promoted to a management role. There were a lot of different areas covered which has made me think much more widely about myself and the role with the overall aim to make me a better manager. A lot of points mentioned were not areas I had considered previously and so this has given me some food for thought and opened my mind to a lot of different management styles and practices.”
