Introduction to Supervision and Team Leadership
Essentials Of Management - Residential
The Five-Day Management Programme
Learn all the essential techniques to successfully motivate and manage a team, with this comprehensive introduction to management course.
The Introduction to Management course covers core management skills that can be applied to almost any management role or industry sector. Aimed at those whose role requires them to directly manage others, the Introduction to Management course is a popular choice for managers who have not had any formal training and those who are relatively new to management. It is also useful as a refresher course for managers with more experience who wish to explore best practice for communicating, motivating and leading a team.
Managing others can be one of the toughest challenges we face at work, covering a huge range of responsibilities and tasks. This Introduction to Management course gives a complete overview of what a manager needs to know and covers technical development and relationship skills. At the end of the course, learners will leave with a thorough understanding of what good management looks like, and how to use it to get the best from others.
The Introduction to Management course from Reed Learning covers the parts of management that new managers often find most difficult, like providing feedback and addressing underperformance. Every manager attending this course will leave with a practical action plan, improved confidence, and a best-practice toolkit that will make a real difference back at work.
Participants attending this management course can also attend a Rapid Review Virtual Classroom afterwards for free. We recommend that a learner leaves a three to six month gap before attending this to ensure that they have had time to put their new management skills into practice.
The Virtual Classroom Introduction to Management - Rapid Review provides more expert advice and gives learners the opportunity to access coaching and support. You can find more details and dates here.
