About this Programme:

People join organisations but leave their bosses – a fact that data continues to prove, along with research findings into contemporary management theory.  Great teams need great team leaders – leaders who inspire, motivate, and grow their people. Excellent team leadership requires both leadership and management skills, and it's often the management skills that are underemphasised.

The Manager's Toolkit is a practical, twelve-module training Programme designed to provide essential skills needed by team leaders at all levels.  The Programme equips team leaders to:

  • Adopt a coaching style of leadership
  • Create a culture of hosting productive, shorter and inspiring meetings
  • Understand the emotional cycle of change and how to manage resistance
  • Sharpen business acumen
  • Use objective setting, feedback, and coaching to improve team and individual performance
  • Adopt a framework for effective communication with a strong focus on listening
  • Make better decisions by solving problems collaboratively
  • Resolve conflicts that naturally surface when people work together
  • Increase personal productivity and avoid procrastination
  • Strengthen teamwork and raise motivation levels.
