Management : Introduction

Two Day Course


What is Management?

Successful Management is the art of achieving goals by utilising the skills and personalities of people in a smart and effective way. The five main Management functions that should be followed are planning, organising, staffing, directing and controlling.

Why is it important to be a good Manager?

A Manager's role is critical to the success of any business. A good Manager will be able to organise their team in order to get tasks completed correctly, on time and within budget as well as make the right decisions, at the right times and using the right people.

What is our Management course about?

Our course is a two-day introduction to Management. It is aimed at new managers looking to brush up their skills or those seeking their first management role.

Most of us have had experience of being managed within the workplace and therefore know how important it is for the team and business that it is done well. This course will cover the essential skills you need to be an effective and confident manager and will help you apply various management techniques to get the best from your team and yourself.

The course will be interactive and will give you a chance to practice and develop your skills in a relaxed and supportive environment.

What are the 5 things you will get out of this course?

After completing the Management course you will be able to:

• Understand the fundamentals of being an effective manager
• Apply different management styles and techniques to deliver positive results
• Develop communication skills by sharing your experiences with other team members
• Work with and address challenging behaviours and conversations
• Develop an action plan that can be applied in both personal and working environment

No previous Management experience required to attend this course.
