The New Manager – 2 day course

 

If you are on your way to becoming a new manager or would like to learn the fundamentals of how to become a better manager then this will be the ideal course for you. This course will focus on the essential requirements needed to execute managing for the first time if you are a newly qualified manager and will also allow you to gain knowledge of the skills needed for leading a new team effectively if you are a newly promoted manager.

Total Success is well renowned for our management training courses as we cater to all levels of management. We are able to design courses for specific needs, whether it be improving management skills or providing management refresher training.

This course is designed for newly appointed managers and supervisors. Its modular approach builds into a toolkit of essential management skills and gives practical ‘real life’ examples, scenarios and techniques to enable the New Manager to manage with confidence. We place great emphasis on workshops, role-plays, active participation and group discussion to allow the knowledge to be understood and used quickly and easily in the work place.

The course consists of a series of six modules which are taught over the two days. After each session delegates will be given work assignments and post-course action plans which reinforce the skills and techniques taught on each session. Each assignment is designed to be reviewed after one month with the delegate’s line manager so the knowledge gained is assessed and analysed.

Each module comes with its own set of notes and follow up exercises and builds into a portfolio of management skills.
