Introduction to Management
Essentials Of Management - Residential
The Five-Day Management Programme
Teaching you all the skills required for team leadership, this supervision course equips you with everything you need to effectively supervise and lead other team members.
The Introduction to Supervision and Team Leadership course is designed for anyone in a supervisory or team leader role and is widely applicable to any industry or sector, making it a popular choice of course. Team leaders and supervisors generally perform similar tasks to their team members, but are responsible for the overall performance of the team. The introduction to supervision offered on this course teaches participants the skills to get the most out of a team and to deal with the common challenges faced by supervisors.
If your role is more about direct management of people with different responsibilities to your own, you might benefit more from attending our Introduction to Management course.
Leading a team can be very challenging but very rewarding if done successfully. The Introduction to Supervision and Team Leadership course will give learners everything they need to know to successfully meet their own objectives and drive their team's performance. It focuses on management from a supervisory perspective, with a focus on the skills we've found people think are most valuable, like dealing decisively with difficult situations and managing delegation.
Explanations of current management theory and practice will be combined with practical exercises to give you confidence in your management style. You’ll leave equipped with the skills to tackle the team leader role head on.
