Who is it for?

The Introduction to Management course covers core management skills that can be applied to almost any management role or industry sector. Aimed at those who directly manage others, our management training program 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 and wish to explore best practice for communication, motivation and leadership skills.

What is it about?

Managing others can be one of the toughest challenges we face at work. This Introduction to Management course gives a complete overview of what a manager needs to know, and covers both technical development and relationship skills. At the end of this business management course, learners will leave with a thorough understanding of what good management looks like, and how apply it to get the best from others.

Run in-company

All of our courses can be delivered in-company at a location of your choice.

As a general rule, if you have three or more employees with similar learning needs, an in-company programme will be the most efficient and cost-effective choice for you.

You can choose to run the course exactly as we have outlined here (standard) or we can customise it so that it meets your specific needs. A tailored offering is likely to follow the standard outline but may be adapted, for example to include your own terminology, branding or examples. A bespoke offering is where we align our learning expertise to your specific organisational needs. This could be anything from adding to existing content to designing completely new experiences.
