Essential Leadership Skills For Managers

This 2 day Essential Leadership Skills For Managers course will give managerssupervisors and team leaders the leadership skills and training they probably never received when first promoted. We have found that the majority of people within this role have been asked to “learn as they go” and have never received the essential leadership training. So we have carefully put together this 2 day Leadership training course to give you the confidence, skills and tools required to proceed in this very challenging area. We use a combination of theory and practice to facilitate your learning and to help increase your confidence, leadership and supervisory skills in a safe, controlled and non threatening environment.
