leadership and management training

Introduction to Leadership & Management


Being great at ‘the day job’ doesn’t automatically mean that staff will make great managers and leaders.  Leadership and management is a different skills set and asking people to step into management roles without training and support can cause a slide in productivity.

According Investors in People, poor people management costs the UK economy £84 billion a year through reduced efficiency and performance.  Encouraging good practice in leadership would have the biggest positive impact on an organisations bottom line.

This essential one-day introduction to leadership and management training course explores what it takes to be an effective leader and manager.  Practical exercises provide a safe environment to practice different approaches and rehearse the skills needed to build and lead teams and deal with effectively with staff.  It’s ideal for new managers, team leaders and those who have never had any formal leadership training.

I thoroughly enjoyed the course, the pace was set perfectly & there were plenty of interactive sessions as well as learning theoretical aspects. I've been to a training course Nicky delivered years ago and can still remember what I learned - I therefore have confidence that I will remember what I have learned from this course.
