Overview

Being a manager is highly rewarding, but at times it can be also be challenging.

As a manager your role is to get things done through other people. Issues can, and do, arise and to be effective you need to be able to respond confidently. Highly skilled managers manage themselves and their motivation, as well as work well with others. Truly great managers never stop learning, they are continually looking for new approaches and honing their skills.

In this lively, fun and highly interactive virtual workshop, you’ll gain a deeper understanding of the skills and behaviours of effective managers. You’ll build your management confidence by developing an understanding your current strengths, as well as learning new tools, techniques and strategies to help you make a real difference to your teams. Working with peers facing similar challenges, you’ll rehearse the knowledge and skills needed through real-life workplace challenges, and with access to My SmartPath through McCrudden Training you’ll have 12-months of support to help you implement your learning.
