What is People Management Skills Training?

People management skills training is designed to equip your managers with the additional “people skills” they need to be more effective in their role.

Most managers evolve into management by virtue of their superior technical knowledge and experience. They find themselves in a management role, and sometimes they then have problems. These problems relate to the managers trying to gain the willing cooperation of the team; some of whom are not always easy to manage.

Many managers flounder, because they do not know how to get the best from other people. Some managers come on too strong, and others, not strong enough.

This course will give your managers the people skills they need to get the best performance from themselves and others.

The course was clearly set out with content that made you think and opened your eyes. The trainer's presentation was very enjoyable, clear communication and took time to explain aspects that people didn't understand. Moved at a good pace.

People Management Skills Training Course Overview

This two-day training course consists of four connected half-day modules.

Day one, morning: We set out the nine major people management skills, and we ask you to honestly assess yourself to discover where you are strong, where you are NOT so strong and what you most want to gain from this course. We will cover: goal setting, clear and convincing communication, how to explain complex ideas, impression management, positive and negative forms of motivation. We also examine the correct and incorrect use of humour. We finish on the issue of using positive suggestion and motivation.

Day one, afternoon: We focus on how to handle conflict, difficult people and poor performance. We know that conflict is inevitable, and how you manage conflict is crucial. Many managers mishandle conflict, either by coming on too strong, or not being strong enough! You will learn exactly what to say to get the balance right.

Day two, morning: All managers have to be masters of time management. We train you in the art of prioritisation, delegation and problem solving. You will learn to avoid the chaos that some people live in, and replace it with logical order and an increased degree of control over events.

Day two, afternoon: Emotional intelligence. How people feel emotionally, profoundly affects their performance. Negative feelings create negative results, whilst positive emotions produce positive results. Therefore each manager must become an expert at handling emotions, first their own and secondarily, other peoples’. You will learn the art of emotional management, self-control, conversation control, reframing, feedback and inspirational leadership.

You will really enjoy and benefit from this material.

Learning Outcomes:

  • Learn the essential people management skills
  • Set specific goals for a better future
  • Master the skills of clear communication
  • Learn the best way to handle poor performance and other conflict situations
  • Maximise productivity with proper planning, delegation and time management skills
  • Transform any team negativity with a positive mental attitude
  • Get the best performance from every member of the team
