Moving Up In Management

Course summary

Often managers are in post for some years, without having any management training. They function well enough in role, and yet they may feel they have missed out on the opportunity to learn and develop new skills, and on some of the practical hints and tips around people management that would make things run more smoothly. If this sounds like you, you may be interested in this two and a half day training course for experienced managers.

Course outline

This management training was developed as a result of feedback from those who attended our other popular management courses. It is designed for those who would not attend Moving into management because they feel they have been 'doing it' for too long already, and who find that the predominantly strategic focus of Moving from manager to leader is not quite what they are looking for.

This is first and foremost a skills-based management training course, full of tips and techniques, for those who want to focus on the practical side of the manager's role, and to share their reflections and experiences in the company of others who are in a similar situation.

Over the two days you will cover:

  • managing in different organisations
  • policies and procedures for people management
  • induction, supervision and appraisal: some structures
  • managing your team
  • teams and groups
  • what makes a star team?
  • motivating people
  • introduction to motivational theory
  • different thinking and operating styles
  • you and your communication style
  • managing problem behaviour
  • managing difficult situations
  • managing your manager
  • managing yourself


After the training course there is a half day follow up session to review your progress, looking particularly at any sticking points.

Who is this course for?

This training course is for managers who have been in post for more than a year. It is a skills-based course for those more interested in the practicalities of people-management than the theory. The Centre works with people from all sectors including the public sector, voluntary sector, corporate sector and private sector.

What will this course help me do?

After this training course, you will return to the workplace with renewed confidence and a surer grasp of your role and responsibilities. You will have worked on your management and communication skills, have gained numerous hints and tips for managing problem situations, and you will have devised an action plan to enable you to focus on what most needs attention.
