The Course Training Method

The training method follows this general pattern - the training is very interactive and interesting:

  1. The trainer gives a clear explanation of the point in question with specific examples.
  2. Then, the delegates practice by doing an exercise with each other.
  3. The delegates practice by doing an exercise with the trainer.
  4. All points are supported with full written notes to take away.
  5. Delegates are asked to write down an associated action, for each point made.
    (At the end of the day, we have about twenty such actions, from which the delegates choose six which are the most personally meaningful).

Management Development Training Course Summary

The purpose of the management development programme is to help your managers develop more confidence, by means of developing more skill.

In any situation, Confidence comes from knowing exactly what to do, and exactly what to say. The confident manger is the COMPETENT manager.

The purpose of this training is to develop the six major management competencies and their related skills.

The six key competencies are; Goal setting, clear communication, time management (Prioritisation and delegation) , conflict resolution, self-motivation and inspirational leadership.

The course will help you to get the best performance from yourself and others.

Management Development Programme Objectives

A manager needs to develop the following six skill sets:

1. Goal focus

The ability to decide upon, and communicate a clear and distinct goal.

2. Excellent communication skills

The ability to speak and write in ways that communicate your message without any misunderstanding. Good communication means the ability to make your message clear, distinct, persuasive and motivational.

3. Time management; planning and prioritisation.

The ability to manage time and to prioritise tasks so that the team is as productive as possible. “Busy work” is to be replaced by “Productive work”.

4. Rational conflict management.

Conflict is inevitable. A manager needs to know how to defuse conflicts before they have the chance to explode into something more serious. Rational conflict management is the art of taking the negative emotions OUT of the conflict situation and using positive REASONING to resolve conflict.

5. Self-confidence and self-control.

The ability to inspire and motivate yourself (personal management). Each manager needs to develop self-motivation, self-confidence, self-control, self-discipline. Maintain a positive mental state of optimism and realistic self-confidence, especially during the tough times.

6. Leadership.

Inspire and motivate other people.
The ability to inspire self-belief, self-confidence in the other members of the team, especially during difficult times. As opposed to; allowing negativity, pessimism or fear to take hold of the team and weaken its spirit.

A manager needs to develop all six sets. This course shows you how.
