Description

•Are you new to supervising or managing a team?

•Do you need to know how to motivate your team?

Companies need managers to motivate and drive teams to get good results. There is huge company benefit in terms of work saved, time saved and decent employees retained, by good managers who know what they are doing and can motivate teams to accomplish what they have planned. Developing management abilities is key to the growth of both the individual and the company. It is imperative that new supervisors and managers acquire the foundation of relevant skills upon which to build their career.

You will benefit from this course if you are a new supervisor or manager, and if you want to receive the complete toolkit of skills you need. Existing managers with little formal training will also benefit from experiencing the latest thinking and best practice.
