It’s been said that management is ‘getting things done through people.’ That’s not always easy: to be an effective manager you need to be able to juggle the expectations of your service users with the needs of your staff and your own wellbeing. Added to that, there is no ‘one size fits all’ management style: you must know when and how to be flexible to enable people to perform at their best. These 2 interactive workshops will equip you to understand your role and responsibilities as a manager and to build key skills to be confident and effective in your role.

Do you look at role profiles for technical managers and think ‘I could never do that?' If so, this interactive workshop will show you how to tackle that feeling of being stuck at your current level. You’ll identify the transferable skills you already have, as well as the key management skills you can start developing NOW. Then you will feel much more confident to apply for the roles you’re interested in and will be better equipped to hit the ground running once you start your new position.
