Management positions are a natural part of furthering your career. Undertaking the challenges that arise from managing people requires great flexibility and the need to adopt new, sometimes unfamiliar, approaches.

This ‘Effective Leadership Skills for the Workplace’ course gives you the necessary, practical skills to manage and lead your teams to greater success. It tackles the key elements of line management; from goal setting to delegation to difficult conversations both internally and externally.

Attend this course to hear about different styles of leadership and discover, through practical workshops, which style works best for you and your team. Understand how to build a highly motivated culture and take away the skills to deal with some of the more difficult aspects of people management, including handling challenging conversations, giving negative feedback and managing poor performance.

Join Marie Thake on this highly interactive one-day training course to uncover and realise your full potential as a manager.
