Becoming an effective manager is not easy. It’s rare to ever get training or a decent explanation of what it takes to become a manager.

This workshop (and upcoming online course) is for new managers, or those who feel their managerial performance could do with some improvement.

There are 21 lessons spread across the full day workshop.

Each lesson is presented in a seminar style by myself, before delegates go through a series of short activities to complete the associated activity booklet.

Once complete each person has a personal guidebook to use over the coming months to develop their abilities as a manager.

Bundled with this workshop is a follow up full-day where I return to answer questions, do personal coaching or dig deeper through each lesson. It’s impossible to teach good management in a month, let alone a day, but the inspiration and clarity that your managers and leaders will have from this workshop alone, will be enough to see them engaged in cultivating their careers.
