This training programme is definitely different

You know what it is like. You attend a management training course and you enjoy it, learn a little and take away some new ideas. But somehow you are still left feeling empty. There must be more. This is quite common and there is a reason for this. To truly change you must be truly stretched. This applies to you the manager and to your team. To be stretched you need to be taken out of your comfort zone. How many training courses do this? Well this one does. And the course is tailored to each individual delegate.

This management training course gives you the opportunity to learn about yourself, explore your leadership style, participate in activities that will take you out of your comfort zone and help you assess your leadership behaviour and the effect you have on your team and on your job. You will be given support and coaching to help you learn and apply new skills as well as ‘on the job’ support.
