New managers or team leaders programme

(typically two days)

Custom designed:

Quality, in-house training for your organisation’s needs


This programme is designed specifically for new leaders or those preparing for future leadership. You will receive intensive coaching in all of the fundamentals of leadership. The programme is also appropriate for existing managers who have received no formal leadership training and wish to master leadership skills in order to achieve professional and personal success. Optionally, a 360 degree Leadership Assessment tool can be used on this programme.

New managers programme

"The most difficult change for new managers have to make involves their mind set. Specifically, they must learn to value managerial work rather than just tolerate it. They must free up time for planning, coaching and other similar work."
