Course description

Introduction to Management

This experiential and practical 2-day Introduction to Management workshop provides invaluable support for those in, or moving up to, first-line management. We build self-confidence, as well as professional skills and provide an ideal forum for sharing best practice. We’ve hand-picked content reflecting the key management disciplines, and this can be made bespoke according to your organisation’s priorities, values or cultural differentiators.

It’s often the case that talented employees find themselves promoted into the stressful position of holding management responsibility without the necessary development or support. We provide a safe environment to build self-confidence through tackling the key disciplines modern organisations demand of their people managers.

Please note:

All Introduction to Management courses are available as face to face or virtual / online delivery. Please contact the provider for more information.
