Overview

This intensive one day course is designed to give you a concise but deep insight into the challenges of senior management and the mind set and practical tools that will enable you to succeed.

Senior management requires you to think and act differently. To make the transition successfully, you need to spend some time reflecting on how you do things now and question how well that will serve you in your new role.

During this day you'll have a chance to explore your own beliefs about yourself and what it means to be a senior manager. You'll be able to identify habits and ways of thinking that might hold you back, as well as those that you'll need to cultivate so you can thrive.

You'll also develop some practical tools and techniques that you can rely on to tackle the most common challenges.
