Description

Moving up to a Manager position requires a profound change of mindset and perspective.


New managers must re-invent their professional outlook and must face a new suite of complex challenges.  


People who have climbed the organisational ladder often learn on the job, often through mistakes – it is rare that anyone sits them down to have the “manager” talk.


This course is designed to help new and future managers to map out the new environment that awaits them, with its concepts, challenges and its relationships.


Participants are guided to learn to slip into their new role as a Leader, with a better understanding of team leading, business administration, commercial and strategic concepts.


They develop the understanding of what a business expects from its team leaders and managers.


Through a combination of theoretical sessions and hands-on workshops, the mindset of participants is transformed to embrace the shift of focus from detail to overview, which they must go through to be successful Managers.
