Management and Performance Development

A skilled management workforce is fundamental to an efficient business. Our management and leadership courses cover the key processes, practices and theories required for successful management, catering both for those new to their position as well as those with more experience.

Coaching Skills for Effective Performance

Today’s manager knows that coaching is a key element of team development. Effective people management is no longer about telling people what to do; effective leaders understand how coaching and development contributes to business success.

Optimise Your Recruitment Process

Have you been bitten once too often with a new recruit who showed so much potential at interview but didn’t deliver from day one? You may have tried and tested a number of different methods to ensure that you identify the right person from an applicant pool, but you later wonder whether it was the right selection decision? If either of these scenarios resonates with you, then perhaps it’s time for a more scientific approach to your recruitment.

Performance Management and Appraisal

Effective performance management helps foster motivation, staff retention, productivity and good working relationships. The course will also offer practical techniques to help participants improve their communication skills and provide an understanding of how to give feedback more effectively.

Train the Trainer

Understanding how to prepare and deliver training will enable you to create effective training programmes within your workplace. You will gain confidence to assess the learning outcomes against your organisation’s needs. With budgets being squeezed it is beneficial for internal experts to learn how to pass on their knowledge and expertise through effective training sessions and developing others.
