Management and Performance Development

A skilled management workforce is fundamental to an efficient business. Our management and leadership courses cover the key processes, practices and theories required for successful management, catering both for those new to their position as well as those with more experience.

Coaching Skills for Effective Performance

Today’s manager knows that coaching is a key element of team development. Effective people management is no longer about telling people what to do; effective leaders understand how coaching and development contributes to business success.

Organising Yourself More Effectively

These days we are all having to deal with a tsunami of information and the multiplicity of channels through which it comes; email, text, Twitter, LinkedIn, Newsletters etc. Often we find ourselves servicing huge amounts of messages which fragment our attention and cause us to neglect what truly matters. There has to be a better way and this one day programme addresses that need providing practical tools and techniques that can be used immediately.

Performance Management and Appraisal

Effective performance management helps foster motivation, staff retention, productivity and good working relationships. The course will also offer practical techniques to help participants improve their communication skills and provide an understanding of how to give feedback more effectively.

Train the Trainer

Understanding how to prepare and deliver training will enable you to create effective training programmes within your workplace. You will gain confidence to assess the learning outcomes against your organisation’s needs. With budgets being squeezed it is beneficial for internal experts to learn how to pass on their knowledge and expertise through effective training sessions and developing others.
