Workshop Description

Being a first time manager is not easy and often does not come with the necessary training. 68% of the UK's managers are accidental, having performed extraordinarily well at their role; these managers are thrust into management positions without the new skills needed to effectively lead their teams into the future. We also find that more senior/experienced managers lack the right skills to lead effectively from the front.

This highly interactive course tackles the challenge of transitioning from being a team member to a team manager head on. Providing the tools, methods and structure to balance time, tasks, team needs, performance management and individual development.
