Below are some common questions we are asked about our management training courses. If your question isn't answered, please contact us.
What sort of people will be with me on the course?
People who come on your course are likely to be similar to yourself: They have selected to come on the same course as you, because they are looking for answers to the same questions.
You won’t meet Richard Branson nor Donald Trump. Your fellow delegates will be normal people with normal questions.
Do I need to have any previous knowledge or training?
You need NO previous knowledge or training. This training assumes that you are reasonably intelligent and willing to learn. That is all.
Is there any pre-work I need to do before the training?
There is not set pre-work for this course, but there are a few optional things you could do:
Figure out before-hand, exactly what you want to gain by attending this course. Be as specific as you can. Finish the following sentence: By attending this course, I want to discover exactly how I can better........... Do what?
You may also wish to complete the Training Needs Analysis questionnaire.
Is there any test or exam?
There is no exam or written test The real test will be whether you choose to apply the principles that you will learn, in real life, practical situations.
You will learn things that really do work, if you work them.
Is there any post course homework?
The post course homework is to apply the principles that you learn, in real life situations.
The work you do on the course is very engaging and interesting, and you will be inspired to put it into practice. The real test is whether you actually do what you say you will do;
Put the course material into practice on a consistent basis. (and NOT to drift back to your original habit patterns that you had before the training).
The purpose of training is to help you formulate a plan for successful action, but a plan won’t work unless you do!
Is there any post course certification?
There are two options for post course certification:
You will receive our Corporate Coach Group certificate which has been endorsed by both the ILM and the CPD
If you wish, you can receive an ILM certification if you will pay an additional fee to the ILM.
Do I really need to do this training?
Before you can answer that question, you need to make a distinction between the concept of "NEED" and "BENEFIT".
You may not think that you NEED the training. But you certainly will BENEFIT from this training, because everyone does.
Will the training work for me in real life situations?
The training on this course is designed to be used in real life situations.
Many traditional training courses provide theoretical models that merely describe what is going on, but do not prescribe any useful ways to deal it. For example, BELBINS, MASLOW, MYRES BRIGGS etc. We believe that, although doing a “personality profile questionnaire” may tell you that you have a certain personality type, that information may be interesting, but it does not tell you what to do, or say, when a colleague is NOT doing what you want them to do.
1. Knowing that you have a “Personality type A” does not tell you what you should say.
2. Knowing that you have “Personality type B”, does not tell you how to be.
Our training is less about learning abstract theories, and more about learning practical methods that will help you to get the best performance from yourself and others.
What should I wear?
When attending the training, most people wear smart-casual, business type clothing. Usually that means not t-shirts.
Is food provided?
If it is an open course, then; Yes - food is provided. Plus tea, coffee snacks etc.
If it is an in-house course, then no.
Is there parking nearby?
