ABOUT THE TRAINING

Hi everyone,

I'm looking forward to seeing you for Advanced Management Skills training. This 2-day workshop is designed to help senior managers build empowered, motivated teams. You will learn vital coaching skills required to nurture a culture of ownership and initiative. You will understand how to support individuals’ career progression, whilst also appreciating the nuances of team dynamics. Using the latest management techniques, alongside plenty of opportunity for peer group discussion, you will come away feeling equipped and confident to handle any management situation. 

Module 1: Strategic Management

  • Prioritise your time to focus on what really matters strategically (the difference between urgent and important)

  • Understand the mindset of a high performing senior manager 

  • Communicate a clear vision and direction for you and your team

  • Set ambitious team goals, aligned with the company’s objectives 

  • Get to grips with the high challenge-high support principles and identify your underlying beliefs as a manager

Module 2: Team Dynamics

  • Navigate the complexities of team culture in a hybrid world 

  • Build a psychologically safe environment, based on trust and belonging

  • Establish team values and behaviours 

  • Resource teams according to their strengths and competencies

  • Ensure clear roles and responsibilities  

Module 3: Career Conversations

  • Support teams in their career progression 

  • Structure appraisal conversations 

  • Handle promotion requests fairly and effectively

  • Recognise whether performance issues are ‘can’t do’ (skills) or ‘won’t do’ (attitude), using proprietary ‘performance navigator’ tool to accurately assess issues

  • Handle push back, denial and emotion

  • Know when to escalate an issue to HR or senior management

Module 4: Coaching Culture

  • Create an everyday coaching culture, with a thriving ‘think for yourself’ mindset

  • Know when to ‘coach’ and when to ‘direct’

  • Understand the power of active listening

  • Use incisive questions and clean language 

  • Apply the GROW model to encourage non-directive self problem-solving 

  • Master the art of summarising and paraphrasing 

See you soon!

Genuinely the most useful training session I have been on!

EBAY
 
ADVERTISING SOLUTIONS MANAGER

That’s easily the best course I’ve been on in 9 years at eBay. A great combo of practical/applicable advice, and so well presented. Looked like there was a lot of work put into a custom course, and I thought it was totally worth it.
