Course 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 within their role; these managers are thrust into management positions without the necessary skills needed to effectively lead their teams into the future. According to a CMI survey in 2017, this management skills gap cost the UK economy £84 billion a year.

We also find that some 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. It will provide the tools, methods and structure to balance time, tasks, team needs, performance management and individual development.

You can further your learning and gain a fully accredited CMI Level 3 Award in Principles of Management and Leadership by signing up to an additional day of training (this is optional).
