A practical programme based on real workplace issues for new and experienced managers.

If you’re a line manager and never had any training, or if you just need some re-assurance that you are managing people in the best possible way then this is the course for you. Maybe you find it difficult to give feedback, to delegate or to manage people who are also your friends.

Our two day line management training is suitable for both new line managers wanting to find out what a line manager should be doing and more experienced people managers who want to brush up on key skills like delegation, motivation, performance management, giving feedback, time management, setting targets, coaching staff, running appraisals and handling conflict.

We provide real insight, with tools and techniques that can be used immediately in the workplace to increase your confidence and capability as a manager.

The course is truly tailored to the level of experience and the needs of the delegates in the room on the day, with lots of side-coaching on real situations.
