How to be a great manager

About the workshop

This workshop will teach you the essential skills of people management and techniques for developing staff. It also covers the basic attributes of leadership, and the art of motivating a team. The skills taught in the workshop can be used in everyday interactions with staff, in appraisals/reviews, and in meetings set-up for planning, delegation, feedback and more. Many of these skills will also help you get the most out of everyday interactions with colleagues, clients and customers.

The workshop is practical and there will be lots of opportunities to discuss and exchange ideas, and practice new skills.

The workshop is comprised of two half-day sessions and can be tailored to suit the needs of particular organisations.

All my workshops are practical, they are opportunities to reflect, to share experiences, to learn from me and from others, to change who you are and what you do. I prefer bespoke solutions, so I’m happy to tailor what I do to meet a client’s needs.
