This essential 1-day management workshop 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, as well as the language to use.

MODULE 1:

LINE MANAGER ESSENTIALS

  • Gain an understanding of the core processes and requirements of the role
     

  • Learn how to write objectives that are specific, measurable, achievable, relevant and time-bound

  • Ensure team members have the necessary training, support and mentoring to develop those competencies
     

  • Discover how to plan and structure effective 1:1 check-ins
     

MODULE 2:

  • Know how to deliver recognition that is heard and appreciated; practise positive reinforcement

  • Recognise differences in others and how they like to be managed; flex your style accordingly

MODULE 3:

DELEGATING & BRIEFING

  • Learn to deliver consistently clear, thorough briefs
     

  • Strike the perfect balance between ‘remote’ and ‘approachable’ – managerial, not matey
     

  • Appreciate how to brief colleagues according to their competence and maturity
     

  • Master the art of open questions
     

  • Check for understanding, provide space for enquiry and recognise incongruous nonverbal signals

MODULE 4:

PERFORMANCE MANAGEMENT
