A one day course – limited places remaining!

Date: 22nd February 2018

Amazingly, recent research carried out by the Carnegie Institute of Technology showed that 85% of your financial success is due to your Personality and your ability to Communicate, Negotiate and Lead and only 15% is due to your technical knowledge. In today’s economic climate, management training is becoming increasingly valuable and in particular, successfully managing a team of people to reach a desired objective or set of objectives is a skill you simply cannot be without. Quite simply you will find it harder to succeed without the proper training!

Did you know the impact of your personality, your communication style and technical abilities will be reflected in your team, their morale, their (and your) success levels, the organisations targets and objectives and overall attitudes? If you don’t have the skills set to develop your team, the team will go nowhere, things won’t happen as required and so on. Having not good but great people management skills in place is absolutely vital if you are to succeed in achieving the goals and objectives set out. A person with great people management skills is often reflected in the following;

Someone who,

  • Motivates the team to take action and engage them with a compelling mission and vision
  • Has the assertiveness to drive outcomes and the ability to overcome adversity and resistance
  • Can create a culture of clear accountability
  • Build relationships that create trust, open dialogue, and full transparency
  • Makes decisions that are based on productivity, not politics

Unfortunately, recent research reveals that as little as one in ten people may possess the natural abilities or skills to be described as above. However, with training, you will learn the skills, techniques and gain a better understanding of how and why people respond to being managed.

This is an extremely popular course as it teaches you essential people management skills, arms you with the necessary knowledge and education to effectively manage people in your dept. / team / business or organisation, often with immediate effect! This training course is also CPD certified with 5 structured CPD points.
