The Model Manager course is one of our most popular courses with many original clients still offering it to new starters and promoted staff.
It is a fully immersive introduction to the art of management and what it takes to be an inspirational and effective manager.
A lot of talented individuals are promoted to management roles without having had any training.
They are tasked with leading and motivating a team which may not be skills that they naturally have. This course plugs the gap by exploring essential management skills and introducing ideas that can be developed to create a unique personal management style.
We look at the skills, competencies and mindset required. We look at the challenges and opportunities that all managers face and how to overcome common difficulties. The course uses a mixture of classic management theory punctuated with real world examples from our experienced trainers, all of who have been managers in a wide range of sectors.
Whilst this is designed for the first time manager, it is also useful as a refresher for more experienced managers.

Three things you must avoid when giving feedback
