Emerging Managers Programme

The essential management toolkit for new managers

The final public training programme date (21-23 June 2016) is now SOLD OUT. You can still bring this programme in-house to your organisation. Get in touch on 020 7978 1516 to talk to us about this.

Over the last 15 years =mc's Emerging Managers Programme has helped more than 1,000 new managers or soon-to-be managers make the transition from team member to team leader. As part of this process they have been able to benefit from learning to use the latest tools and techniques to manage themselves and their team.

The programme is based on =mc’s research into the needs and concerns of newer managers and is specially designed to give them a safe opportunity to try out new skills and approaches, while also providing them with detailed feedback and the opportunity for self-reflection. Over three busy days we focus on your responsibility for achieving results, equipping you to build – and work through –successful teams and resolve challenges. You have the opportunity to lead live exercises and receive feedback from fellow participants, enabling you to grow in confidence and build core skills. 

Who is the programme for?

This programme is designed for individuals who have recently been promoted or who are about to be promoted and are now responsible for managing colleagues or teams. It is the ideal development opportunity for managers or potential managers that an organisation has identified for fast track.

"I wish I’d done this sooner. An excellent synthesis of the core skills you need as a manager."
Joni Hillman, Aid Transparency Programme Manager, Development Initiatives
