Course description

Introduction to Management - 2 day introductory management skills course - Live virtual training

People often forget that management is a profession in its own right, like any other, requires specific skills that go beyond the technical expertise any professional will no doubt have shown to be awarded a managerial role.

This two day Introduction to Management course is designed specifically for new managers and those soon to be promoted. It will give them a comprehensive insight into the human relations components that characterise any management role, regardless of industry or function. The training programme covers all of the fundamental skills necessary to succeed in such positions, including:

  • Motivating and leading others
  • Training new team members
  • Dealing with conflict
  • Delegating
  • Communicating effectively
  • Evaluating performance and giving feedback
  • Respecting deadlines
  • Team-building

By the end of the course, participants will have the tools and confidence to perform their management duties effectively for maximum results.
