Training Overview

Make a noticeable difference to your effectiveness with this essential management course designed to fit the needs of managers and directors in communications. You'll learn how to manage and motivate your teams so that they are inspired to produce their best work, leading to remarkable results. This practical course will also give you the tools to head off issues before they become difficult to deal with so that you can spend more time on the work you enjoy.

There's an emphasis on developing as a leader others want to follow, so that your staff are also engaged with the needs of the business and understand what they can do to develop their own roles.

How will I benefit?

You will understand how to break down situations so that you come up with solutions that work consistently. This will give you confidence that you have the tools to handle whatever management circumstances come your way. You'll be able to tackle situations before they become problems so that you free yourself from time-consuming and energy-sapping activities.

You will benchmark your current management style and identify ways to become more effective as well as isolate what you're already doing that is helpful so that you can do more of it.

The course is highly interactive, so you will have every opportunity to work on your own real-life scenarios and to practise what you do and say. This means that you'll immediately be able to apply what you've learned and, because the course is structured to include at least two weeks between sessions, you'll be able to try out new techniques in the office and then discuss the actual results so that you can fine tune what you do and really get the most out of the course.

What will I learn?

  • Motivate people every day in a demanding environment
  • How to delegate effectively so that work gets done
  • Coaching your team to improve their skills
  • Delivering feedback that gets results
  • Make good work get better and change unwanted behaviour
  • Deal with conflict and difficult situations successfully
  • Identify your existing personal leadership style
  • Hone your skills and remove obstacles to success

Who should attend?

This course is for managers and senior managers who want to create high-performing teams and develop their leadership skills.

What else do I need to know?

This is an intense course split over one and a half days. At the end of the first day you will plan exactly what you will do to apply what you've learned; at the second session, held at least two weeks later, you will examine what worked and what you want to change. Both sessions will cover the different aspects of management and leadership as outlined above.

What delegates say about Management and Leadership Training for Managers and Directors:

The session was very informative and thought provoking and Sandra was very engaging. It made me think about the way I am currently managing my strengths and ways to improve.

The set up was very engaging. It was brilliant to have our thinking challenged.

Very Useful. Practical tips were given which I can easily interpret and can see myself using ASAP. Leader was great and engaging. Tips were practical and realistic.

It provided a new perspective of looking at management styles/tips that I hadn't considered before. It was activity and discussion led and it kept the group engaged and time flew.

I found it useful as I was able to make each area of training applicable to me, rather than being told how to improve management style. Sandra was great, very clear and structured. Informative but not extremely serious.

Really useful content in the session with lots of tips but also getting us to think about the answers/best ways to forward ourselves. Really enjoyable and insightful.

I found the session extremely useful. Identifying the shared experiences and discussing them gave me food for thought and I also covered working/chatting with people from other floors. I enjoyed having a lengthy discussion about feedback!

Probably one of the best training sessions I've had. Lots to think about and lots of useful actions to put in place after.

Really enjoyed the enthusiasm but also the listening from Sandra and how she adapted the session based on what we were asking.
