ABOUT THE TRAINING
I'm looking forward to seeing you for Management Foundations training. This essential 1-day workshop for new managers covers key topics, such as motivation, delegation and giving feedback, as well as understanding the roles and expectations of a line manager. You will come away with a raft of practical tools that you can apply straight away. You will start to understand your own management style and how to adapt to others’ needs, in order to get the best from them. You will learn how to structure important conversations and appreciate the correct language to use.

WHAT PEOPLE SAY
BUSINESS RELATIONSHIP MANAGER
Genuinely the most useful training session I have been on!
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.
BRITISH FASHION COUNCIL
I just wanted to say thank you so much for everything. You really are making such a difference to us all.
