MANAGING PEOPLE FUNDAMENTALS - 2
The following is a sample outline and will be tailored to meet specific organisational training requirements
‘Fundamentals of Management– 2’ is an Advanced Two Day practical course designed to help delegates develop further within their management roles.
Building on ‘Fundamentals of Management - 1’, the course provides an opportunity to self-analyse and develop the skills necessary for highly effective people management. Delegates will build upon their existing knowledge of the key management skills; i.e. motivation, delegation, feedback, time management, coaching and effective communication skills, moving on to focus on key aspects of people management including team development, appraisal skills, conflict management and decision making. Every delegate will leave with a specific action plan in relation to their own team.
The programme is designed to ensure learning from one session is built upon in the next, thereby providing a comprehensive, highly interactive and fun learning experience.
