It's now the right time to Invest in Your Managers

"Collaboration, team work and collegiality are critical to achieving organisational goals" Organisational Capabilities Mattter. 2012

Not many people would dispute the validity of this statement and yet these are often the behaviours that disappear when organisations are under pressure.

Managers that can create a sense of enthusiasm, energy and engagement within and between teams and focus this towards the achievement of organisational goals are found in winning organisations.

Recent research indicates that "the behavioural capabilities of many organisations are still inadequate for the challenges ahead" and that three areas need attention; leadership, employee engagement and collaboration. Our approach to management development has always stressed the importance of these behavioural competencies as the basis of success.

Our Management Development programmes are highly interactive, very practical and will relate to your work environment. They consolidate existing skills and build confidence to develop and use new skills to extend a manager's competence.

Our Management Development Programmes can include

  • Training based modules
  • Individual coaching
  • Personal and behavioural profiling
  • Action learning sets

We particularly recommend a combination of training based modules with one to one coaching to further increase personal effectiveness

Our way of working

  • We will work closely with you to ensure the programme is fully responsive to the particular development needs of your managers and your organisational priorities.
  • Our programme will fit your culture, learning style and ways of working.
  • We recommend that programme participants agree personal development goals with their manager prior to the programme and review them on completion.
  • We encourage participants to seek 'on-the-job' opportunities to practice new skills and techniques.
  • We will provide a range of practical techniques and tools that the participants can immediately apply in their work situations

Suggested modules

  • Effective communication, influencing and negotiation - a two-day module
  • Leading high performing teams
  • Employee performance management and engagement
  • Leading and delivering successful change
  • Developing effective partnerships
  • Performing under pressure


  • Increased organisational capability
