Introduction to Management Training
This 1-day programme is a fast-paced, interactive learning experience for new managers who have not previously attended management or leadership training. It is a practical foundation-level course designed to enhance self-awareness, improve confidence and skills, and introduce a select number of essential theories and models all people managers should have in their toolbox.
- Welcome, introductions and programme objectives; A short ice breaker session linked to the course content to set the tone and atmosphere for the day and to agree ground rules
- Difference Between Managing & Leading – why both are important and exploration of the statement: ‘we lead people and manage resources’
- Influencing Styles – using a questionnaire participants learn about their predominant leadership style and explore how to adapt across the continuum from Directive / Collaborative and Consultative influencing Styles
- Situational Leadership – a model used to illustrate the different ways in which a manager and leader can adapt their style to get the best from teams and individuals. Participants plan to apply this in the context of their current role and establish the balance of directive and supportive behaviours needed for everyone
- Delegation – as an outcome of the situational leadership session the programme goes on to explore delegation, the pitfalls, the benefits, and a 9-Step Process to delegate most effectively. Setting clear expectations with team members in an honest and open manner, so that team members clearly understand the requirements of their role
- Motivation is a key responsibility of managers and leaders, through an understanding of some established theories of motivation, participants work on an activity to decide how to apply this understanding to their teams and team members
- Feedback is essential to encouraging a focus on individual performance, awareness and accountability. Delegates will explore how to deliver meaningful and development focused feedback to their team members. The use of a feedback model is introduced to ensure a consistent approach based on best practice, especially the use of questions in feedback
- Handling challenging situations and potentially difficult conversations is often a concern for individuals that are new line managers, especially those that have been promoted from within the team. The group will learn how to approach and conduct such conversations and adopt an “enquiring approach’.
- Reflection & Action Planning – finally, everyone has a little time to reflect on the extensive coverage of this short programme and to plan and prioritise implementing those aspects that will make the most difference.
