Management Training Course

Learn management skills from our management training experts.

Managers need a wide skills set to meet the challenges they are presented with. They are required to lead and motivate their team; be able to manage change, deal with difficult people, manage performance, coach and develop their staff – and the list goes on!

Our management training course provides managers with the knowledge and skills required to perform their role.

Managers must also use a structured, well-informed approach to get the best results from the people and other resources they manage. During the training, we will ensure that delegates experience real life workplace situations and plan strategies to deal with business and staff management issues.

We help managers to build confidence and achieve better results through an enjoyable learning experience.

“Leadership is the ability to get a person to do what you want, when you want it done, in the way you want it done because they want to.”    Dwight D. Eisenhower

Who will benefit

Suitable for those who are new to management or people who have been managers for some time but want to refresh themselves on the basics of management and ensure that they are up-to-date with management techniques. We will design and deliver a training course that is centred on your exact requirements and based upon your manager's training needs.


1 to 5 days depending on delegates needs.

Objectives of the Management Training Course

  • To provide mangers with the necessary knowledge, skills and behaviours to increase their effectiveness in their current roles.
  • To equip managers with the skills necessary for them to adapt to changing demands in the future.
  • To improve succession planning by providing a structured development program which will enable managers to fulfil their potential within the company.


In order to establish the training needs of managers we ask clients the following questions:

Who should receive the training?
What training they should receive?
When they should do the training?
Where the training should take place?
Why the manager should attend? – What is their role and what are their training needs?
How the training should be done? – Length, modular, etc.

This helps us to tailor the course to meet our client's needs and decide on which of the following four areas of responsibility for a supervisor are essential for the course:

We believe that learning should be enjoyable and interesting. This is why we use a training activity called “Supervisors and Management Duties, Role and Responsibilities” as part of the course. This training resource provokes a thorough discussion on the role and skills of a manager. It also helps managers to understand how they should apply their skills according to the situation. An enjoyable activity which focuses on their development needs and helps to formulate an action plan.
