Managing people – for managers who need to get the best from staff

Managing people is for middle and senior managers who have to delegate tasks and give feedback that encourages staff to develop their skills and motivates teams. This management training is ideal for managers who have recently taken up line management responsibilities or are in charge of new teams.

Course content

Our managing people training will explore the skills that managers require in order to effectively run their teams. The training is underpinned with the behavioural competencies.

  • To understand and practise techniques for delegating work to staff effectively.
  • To ensure that the managers understand and can use their people management skills to lead teams. Part of this involves being self aware of their own skills and competencies.
  • To give them a broad understanding of leadership styles (consultative, participative, benevolent) and which styles can be applied to their teams.
  • To understand how they can involve and motivate staff to work together and to set challenging targets whilst providing support.
  • How to give feedback that is relevant useful and encourages professional development of all staff.

Participants should have reflected on the aspects of team working that affect their work. They should be able to identify the things that they are doing right and areas where they need to work on. The aim is to encourage all staff to work with teams more often and value and measure the benefits.
