Management skills

Our courses are delivered either live online or face to face.

At Aspire Leadership, we provide a range of management training courses to suit everyone from new appointments to senior managers.

We cover essential management skills such as line management (including people management skills), performance management, project management, managing remotely, and change management.

Many managers are promoted to the management role because they’re good at their existing job. They’re often expected to step up with little or no management training and many do so with amazing competence. We know that most managers welcome help in the form of new knowledge, insight, tools, tips and techniques and, in particular, performance management training.

Our management training courses are particularly suitable for people looking to gain a range of new skills in management and for those hoping to explore and understand different management styles.

In addition to those below, further online courses are now available. Click here for further information.

Coaching for High Performance

Coaching and Performance management are key skills for managers to learn and the pressure can grow as the time for appraisals draws near. So in addition to setting expectations, giving feedback and handling conflict we cover the formalities of the appraisal process and interview so that they are really valuable rather than simply a tick box exercise.

Project Management Training Course

Even with the best project plan it can be difficult to ensure that everyone delivers on time and on budget. So this one day Project Management course focuses on people management with some technical stuff thrown in too, like GANTT charts, critical paths and work breakdown structures.

Creating an Inclusive Team

As managers part of our role is to uphold the  values of  our organisation, and  ensure that people are able to bring their whole selves to the workplace. The organisation needs to feel inclusive to all aspects of difference beyond the aspects protected by law.
Crucial components of this mindset are understanding  how Unconscious Bias can affect our decision making and how team cultures are created and maintained. We need to understand the actions we can take to maintain and promote inclusivity.
This training programme aims to get past any defensiveness and create an open and safe space for people to explore the ideas.

The best management training!

Our Line Management course is our most popular offering, both as a public and in-house course. Over the years, we have trained thousands of managers up and down the UK and internationally, most often face-to-face and, increasingly in recent years, live online.

We apply real experience of managing people to common issues that our delegates face in their roles. They practice applying the techniques in the training room, with the support of the trainers and their fellow delegates.

And the result speaks for itself. Take a look at some of the feedback we get from our delegates here. They find the training excellent, both live and virtual.

We love hearing how as little as one or two days in a room with our trainers has boosted the confidence of managers at all levels with practical skills that they can immediately apply when they get back to the office.

Getting the training you need

Of course, not every organisation wants or needs our standard two-day offering. Some want more, and some less – because of specific needs or budgets. That’s where our tailored offering comes in.

Aspire trainers are adept at listening to your needs and truly tailoring a course to meet them.

For example, we often deliver one-day performance management courses, focused on what is generally one of the thorniest areas of management – giving feedback that acknowledges great performance or sets expectations for improvement.

In other cases, our clients have asked for a more in-depth course covering all aspects of management, including EDI, attracting and developing talent, or stepping up to senior management. And not unsurprisingly, we are increasingly asked to cover remote management. These courses are sometimes spread over a longer period of time, allowing for practice and reflection between sessions.

We often supplement our courses with one-to-one or group executive coaching and / or Action Learning Sets to further embed the learning.

Whatever it is you are looking for we are confident we can design an engaging, interactive and useful course that meets your organisation’s specific requirements.

We specialize in developing Management training courses that suit the company and the individual so if you don’t see what you want here, give us a call and we will design something for you.
