A Flexible Modular Programme

People Management

96% of those surveyed post-programme said they would ‘definitely use’ the tools and techniques and ‘would recommend’ the training to other managers.

Our flexible, practical, painless people management training programme is an essential for new managers/leaders or those wanting to refresh/update their skills/benefit from new techniques and approaches.  Get the art of managing people down to just minutes each day.

Not just workshops: Six different, flexible learning formats so you can fit learning around your work calendar. In our research, we found that only a third of people are able to attend a programme of scheduled workshops because of other commitments!

Why do it?

People management? Anyone can do that right? I grew up with people, I know how to talk to them, I'm around them al the time - how hard can it be!

Some managers take the pay rise when promoted to manager and think this might just be about doing a bit of admin and delegating tasks. But people-management is so much more than that: from developing to managing performance, from difficult conversations to motivation and succession planning.

The risk of getting it wrong is good people leaving and, worse, an employment tribunal claim if you make too many mistakes with your people! This doesn't happen in our dealings with friends and family (mostly!) but it does when we put the 'manager' badge on at work. So, we need to equip people-managers with a set of techniques and tools to make it a positive and painless experience for all.
