Management practices have been around for a very long time, however, the context and environment for managers everywhere are changing day by day. In normal times, people leave managers, not organisations. Now, with changing work practices, digitisation, and post-pandemic changes in attitudes to work, the relationship between managers and employees has never been more under stress.
Managers must develop and evolve their practice to respond to the challenges they and their employees face. The Management Essentials course develops the essential management skills to align managing and leading by using a practical and effective model that everyone can understand.
Who is this course for?
- Newly appointed line managers or team supervisors
- Experienced line managers who want to refresh their people management skills
- Potential line managers or team supervisors who want to develop professional management skills before being promoted
- You will develop a sound understanding of key management skills needed for the challenges you face today
- You will increase your confidence in your communication and interpersonal skills
- You will have developed an impressive toolkit of relational management skills and approaches underpinned by a simple, practical and usable model of management and leadership

Managers are crucial to empowering and enabling teams to succeed and achieve their potential. As a result of this course, your managers will develop the behaviours and skills relevant to your organisational context and to their longer-term development as successful leaders. They will have greater confidence and ability in managing people and as a result, improve the potential of individuals and the potential of their teams as a whole
