Leadership and Management Development Programme (Three Days)

Print this page

This comprehensive 3 day programme encourages participants to adopt a more pro-active mindset, with a clearer appreciation of the role of a manager and leader and its impact on their organisation. They will undertake a positive, honest assessment of their performance as a manager and a leader. Over the three days they will develop their skills for organising work to achieve goals and make full use of the abilities and potential of all team members.

As a result of the programme, they will be better able to show initiative, take responsibility and ownership for their actions and those of their team to achieve better results.

The start dates of the programme are shown on the right.

Timings: 9.30 am to 4.30 pm on each day.  The final day will finish earlier for smaller groups of delegates.

Booking confirmations: We will email you to confirm receipt of your booking within five working days. A confirmation invoice will be issued to either request payment by either BACS/cheque or confirmation of payment if you have made a card payment already through our World Pay Account.  Again this will be issued within five working days. Also detailed joining instructions are normally released by email at least seven working days prior to the date of the course.

We look forward to receiving your booking and welcoming you onto the course.

Day One – Managing the Work

The initial focus will be on the role of a manager or leader in an organisation, exploring the roles, the characteristics and skills required. We will examine the behaviours required to achieve goals through their team members and assess their preferences for managing people. We will consider the impact of situations on management style and how to improve awareness and flexibility.


Day Two – Managing Individuals

Leaders take responsibility for the performance and development of their team members. We will look at the theory of managing performance, motivating and developing individuals to take more responsibility themselves. Considering how effectively we communicate, including our listening skills, ability to deliver constructive feedback, and to respond appropriately one to one and in group situations.


Day Three – Managing Teams

Effective team working does not happen by chance. We will explore team dynamics, the importance of team processes, and how to actively promote these. We will delve into the natural stages of team development and how our style should adapt to facilitate the process.



Some of the topic areas covered during the programme:


  • The role of a manager and leader in achieving organisational objectives
  • The seven active behaviours of an effective manager
  • Establishing and scheduling key priorities
  • Developing situational awareness
  • Management style – preferences and learning to adapt
  • The art and science of effective delegation
  • Understanding what motivates different people and how to harness it
  • Managing performance through constructive feedback and coaching
  • Objective setting
  • Communication skills – understanding the keys and overcoming barriers
  • Active listening
  • Characteristics of effective teams
  • Team dynamics and processes
  • Stages of team development

The programme is designed for team leaders, managers and directors who are looking to take the performance of themselves and their team to a higher level. Managers who have some experience, but still ask if they are doing all they can to be the best, who recognise they can do better in some aspects of understanding and fulfilling their role.
