Overview

It's tough being a middle manager. You are the key link between your organisation's strategy and the realities of delivering a consistently good day-to-day service to your organisation's customers and stakeholders. Expectations and demands are rising while resources are diminishing.

While building on your existing experience, this highly interactive two-day course is designed to refocus your attention on what really matters as a manager, equip you with some practical tools to deliver a great job, and give you a motivational boost.

What you'll learn

DAY 1

Get the best from your team:

  • Give clear honest, feedback that enhances trust and respect
  • Make sure people commit to doing the right things
  • Manage habits – other people's and your own
  • Ensure your people are completely clear what is expected of them
  • Develop a reputation as a great manager who is tough but fair
  • Make sure that your team is working in line with your organisation's purpose, vision, strategy and values

Influence and motivate others:

  • Build trust - fast
  • Manage your boss
  • Be honest with yourself about how your team is performing
  • Ask people to do things in a more motivational way
  • Engage and challenge your high performers

Increase your personal productivity:

  • Organise your own personal workload
  • Schedule and commit to important-but-not-urgent tasks
  • Spend less time dealing with emails


DAY 2

Enhance your personal credibility:

  • Communicate powerfully and effectively
  • Say no with confidence
  • Defuse conflict
  • Be more personally resilient in the face of challenges and setbacks

Solve problems and deliver results through others:

  • Structure highly effective team and one-to-one meetings
  • Get meetings off to a good start
  • Become a highly effective problem solver
  • Discover more creative solutions
  • Help people through major organisational changes
  • Develop your team's skills and motivation through coaching

Who is it for?

Anyone in a middle management role who wants to invigorate their whole approach to management.

The course is particularly useful for people who:

  •  Are new to the role and want to learn some powerful management techniques, fast.

  • Experienced middle managers who have not had any formal development recently and may be using out-of-date techniques, such as the Feedback Sandwich or SMART goals.
