Core Skills of People Management

Managing people isn’t easy. Yet many managers are promoted into people management roles without any training and are expected to do just that – manage their people.

In this one-day course we will cover the core skills that you need to effectively communicate, feedback and delegate to your teams, as well as covering some of the more difficult areas of people management such as handling difficult conversations and managing performance.

Who is it for?

The course is suitable for both new managers and those who are already in post but want to develop their people management skills.

What will I learn?

By the end of the course you will understand:

  • the role of a manager, and all the different things that you need to focus on to be effective.
  • the core communication skills that you need to understand your team and ensure that they understand you.
  • the importance of giving (and receiving) feedback, and how to do it effectively.
  • the importance of delegation, why you should do it, and how to do it well
  • how to approach and hold difficult conversations
  • how to set goals for your team, and manage their performance around them
