Recommended Training Course for Managers

Recommended Training Course for Managers

If you are looking for recommended training courses for managers, then our popular two-day leadership and management training programme is just what you need. This leadership and management development course will give your leader/managers the additional skills, tools and techniques they need to get the best from themselves and the staff they are managing.

The course covers the development of six key leadership management skills;

1. Setting goals.

Goals are the starting point for all achievement.

The first step to achieving a goal is to set it.

You need to know how to set clear and compelling goals.

2. Clear communication.

Clear communication means the ability to exchange ideas, information and emotions without any loss or distortion.

Clear communication is to be contrasted to unclear communication where misunderstandings are commonplace.

Clear communication leads to better understanding and more effective action.

3. Planning and prioritising.

Planning is the art of preparing your moves in advance of the event. A lack of planning is the cause of many failures.

Winners are meticulous planners.

4. Handling conflict.

Conflict is inevitable within teams. You are bound to get some conflict.

Conflict is best dealt with, objectively, rationally and with reference to the facts.

Conflicts should not be dealt with emotionally, irrationally or with reference to arbitrary opinions.

Learning objective conflict management techniques forms an important part of your training.

5. Manage your own emotions (self-control).

Managing your own emotions so that you are able to present yourself in a positive, constructive, confident and future orientated manner, is a key part of your management skills development.

Before you can manage anyone else, you must first successfully manage yourself.

6. Manage the emotions of others (leadership).

If you have mastered the above list of five skills sets, you are in great shape to achieve the last.

To inspire others, you use the other five skills. By setting goals, communicating and planning the goals, resolving any conflicts and presenting a confident personality and an optimistic message for the future, you will create and sustain a positive response in the mind of your listener.

If you would like to attend a course to learn these six themes, please check out our two-day Leadership and Management Course which is regularly held in London, Bristol, Birmingham, Leeds, Manchester, Maidstone and Glasgow. The course is also available as an in-house course, where we deliver it to your delegates, at your premises.
