Advanced People Management


Developing your teams for greater results

This training is specially designed to boost management performance for those stepping up to leadership. It provides insight into leadership, and how to motivate and empower teams. There is a particular focus on being an inclusive manager.

Yes, and also face to face (as soon as it is safe to do so). It's equally suitable for both options. For more information on the differences between online and face to face training, as well as our social distancing guidelines, visit our Learning and Development page.
If you have 6 or more people to train it's worth getting in touch to discuss in-house options.

These include:
  • your choice of structure – as well as choosing dates to suit you, you can also decide whether to have the content delivered in full days, half-day sessions or bitesize sessions over separate days.
  • tailoring options – if you're looking to focus on particular elements of the programme, we can look into this.
  • self-directed learning – this enables participants to set learning goals, acquire knowledge and skills, set their own actions and evaluate themselves using a customised web portal which we'll build for you.
In order to make sure your in-house training needs are met, the best way to start this process is with a conversation (for free of course). Contact us online or call 020 7978 1516 to speak to one of our experienced consultants.

At the core of the programme is a combination of contemporary leadership thinking and practical tools. Over two busy days participants work through a series of models and frameworks to develop emotional intelligence and analyse management style preferences. In addition, there is an emphasis on using effective coaching to engage others and retain high performers. Ultimately, these skills enable participants to develop teams and individuals to higher levels of performance.

The programme also explores ways to navigate organisational change.

Who is the programme for?

This programme is for experienced managers who want to take their management practice to the next level. It is suited to managers looking for a way to extend and develop their skills and confidence.

For those interested in developing leadership skills in more depth, see the Transformational Leadership programme.

Or for a more strategic approach, see the Strategic Leadership programme.
