Emerging Managers Programme

emerging-managers-programme

The essential management toolkit for new managers

Over 20 years, =mc‘s Emerging Managers Programme has helped more than 2,000 new or soon-to-be managers make the transition from team member to team leader. The learning – using the latest tools and techniques to manage themselves and their team – is based on =mc’s research into the needs and concerns of emerging managers. It’s designed to give participants a safe opportunity to try out new skills and approaches, while also providing them with detailed feedback and the opportunity for self-reflection.

This online learning session is split into four half-day modules. You can progress through the programme to the point that suits you best, attending just the first module or all the way through to the fourth module. The more modules you book, the lower the cost of each module – think of this as a reward for committing to your learning journey.

Note that you cannot attend the later modules if you have not attended all the ones before (e.g. you cannot attend module 4 without attending 1, 2 & 3).

About the sessions:
Module 1 (3rd June, 09.30-13.00)
  • understand your role as a manager, and how to avoid classic management mistakes
  • identify your learning style preference and how to support others learning and create a learning team
Module 2 (4th June, 09.30-13.00)
  • discover your management style and learn how to adapt it effectively for the person and the situation
  • know when to direct, when to advise, when to coach and when to step back
Module 3 (10th June, 09.30-13.00)
  • delegate more effectively, with increased confidence and at the appropriate level of authority
  • increase team success using effective behavioural feedback
Module 4 (11th June, 09.30-13.00)
  • promote high performance
  • address poor performance quickly and effectively with greater confidence

=mc uses Zoom as a virtual classroom, where the modules will take place. The platform enables high levels of participation. To take part in =mc online learning you will need access to a computer with a working microphone, speakers (or headphones) and a webcam. You’ll need to be in a quiet space with a good internet connection.
Sorry the date doesn't work for you this time. All our public training is scheduled when enough demand is there, so please register your interest here, and we'll let you know as soon as a new date is set.
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 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.
  • developing internal processes – by bringing your team together, you can adapt =mc approaches to develop your internal language and time management approach. Our trainers will hold facilitated discussions to gain group commitments and agreements
  • 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.

online learning session for emerging managers

During the programme we focus on the manager’s responsibilities to achieve results and to support others to excel. Those taking part have the opportunity to take part in live exercises and receive feedback from fellow participants, enabling them 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 also for managers who have been in post for a few years without any management training. It is the ideal development opportunity for managers or potential managers that an organisation has identified for fast track.

(For experienced managers needing to adapt to new ways of working, we recommend our Managing at a Distance programme instead.)

  • “Several members of our team attended the Emerging Managers Programme and really found it useful. Their direct reports have even commented on how their styles have changed, so it’s worked out really well for us.”

    Julia Morgan, Director of Supporter Operations & Data Services, WWF-UK

  • “I really enjoyed the course, thought it was very well organised and well adapted to the remote/online context, and found it very useful with lots of great information to reflect on.”

    Florence Crick, Researcher, International Institute for Environment and Development (IIED)

  • “Every part of the programme was useful. It flowed from one subject to another seamlessly and logically. The delivery was impressive too, thanks to =mc’s personable and professional trainers.”

    Deborah White, Housing Director, West Kent Housing Association

  • “I would definitely recommend this course – it is essential for (new) managers! The practical tools I learnt will be instantly useful in my role.”

    Sarah Clifton, Senior Fundraiser, WSPA

  • “I’ve gained confidence from this training. The tools are very empowering and make me feel more able to progress.”

    Danny Scott, Digital Marketing Manager, Scottish Book Trust

  • “Since the course I find I delegate more strategically. I think about the longer term impact of what I’m asking a colleague to take on.”

    Matt Guy, Corporate Partnership Manager, Alzheimer’s Society
