In order to manage teams you must know how to manage individuals.

We examine the very different styles of situational management and leadership needed and how this can vary according to the individual concerned.

A crucial part of any manager's toolkit is the ability to use and present information correctly and to communicate clearly and effectively. This module deals with written and verbal communication and examines areas such as email and text messages as well as how to make correct use of the telephone and how to communicate effectively face to face.

Delegation, Feedback & Analysing Performance

A manager cannot do everything themself. Numerous Management studies consistently conclude that along with the inability to manage their time effectively the vast majority of managers suffer greatly from an inability to delegate to their subordinates. On the rare occasions where they do delegate, the issue of analysing performance and giving good quality feedback on how to improve performance is often a major hurdle.

Learn the fine art of Delegation and you both gain more time to do what's important and vastly improve your workforce morale

Identifying and Handling Difficult Behaviours

You'll notice that we haven't called this course Handling Difficult People because in reality, there are no 'difficult' people. It is only their behaviour that is difficult, undesirable or challenging. Learn how to deal with bullies, backstabbers, whiners and complainers, know-alls and many more. In this module we identify 10 different types you are likely to meet and we look at what their motivation is, what triggers their behaviour and most importantly how to control these people. You can be a great manager or leader. However, just one of these behaviour types in your team, if you don't deal with them correctly, can destroy everything you're working so hard to achieve. Learn to handle anything that they throw at you.

Discipline and Grievance
As a manager it's vital to understand what rights and responsibilities your workforce have and what rights and responsibilities you have as an employer. What action can you take without endangering yourself and your organisation when you need to change someone's attitude or behaviour? Are their requests their legal right or ridiculous? This module is another crucial lesson for every manager to maintain staff morale and discipline.
Appraisal By Competency

Have you ever come away from an appraisal feeling it was based entirely on the opinion of the appraiser and he or she had got things wrong? Appraisal By Competency is fair and objective as it's based on evidence looking at performance across a range of behavioural indicators. This approach enables the appraisee to offer evidence to support their side of the story.

Results from a number of organisations, from multinational down to SME, consistently show that managers and staff are happy that this method of appraisal identifies the strengths and developmental needs of each individual in a non-confrontational way.
