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.
The New Manager Course Agenda
A breakdown of each module is shown below – Each module comes with its own set of notes and follow up exercises and builds into a portfolio of management skills.:
1. Situational leadership
This module covers the role of a leader; understanding leadership styles; assessing your team development needs; building rapport and team motivation. An important aspect of leadership is appraising staff and improving performance; the following link gives you information on planning an appraisal and setting objectives.
2. Communication skills
How well a manager communicates with his/her staff determines the team’s future success. This module shows you how to assess and develop your communication skills; how to give effective feedback; how to motivate when giving bad news and how to improve your conversation control.

3. How to delegate effectively
One of the true skills of a good manager is the ability to delegate. Effective delegate is one of the signs of a strong, effective leader. We will cover the ‘What, How and Why’ of delegation and show how it allows the new manager to develop individuals within the team and increase morale.
4. Team building
Building a strong, willing and committed team takes time and effort, but nothing gives a manager a greater sense of satisfaction and achievement. Covered in this module are team building exercises; setting targets and performance reviews; developing the individual and appraisal training.
5. Time and priority management
If you are not managing yourself then you can’t manage other people effectively. This module shows delegates how to recognise their most important tasks and how to prioritise them, how to best organise their time and the key skills to being both effective and productive.
