Event description


Being An Engaging Manager is the second of four modules in the Step On: Step Up Programme.

This programme is targeted at new and existing first line managers and supervisors and seeks to provide the knowledge and skills as well as shape the attitude required to thrive as a manager and leader of people during the council's transformation to its new Target Operating Model and beyond.

What have previous attendees had to say about this workshop (series)?

  • "The sessions are for people who want to be better managers or who want to demonstrate that they still have things to learn. I'd go as far as to recommend all managers should undergo some kind of refresher training of this type"

  • "I enjoyed the course. It reminded me of things I have previously learnt but forgotten..."

In this module, you will:

  • focus specifically on how you work and engage with others to build productive relationships

  • deepen your understanding of how your leadership style impacts on working with others

  • understand more about the unconscious interactions and dynamics which occur between people and how to use this to promote high engagement

  • be clear what effective communication looks like and the impact this has on your role in building productive relationships

  • refresh your thinking and capability to hold effective performance conversations with workforce planning and development at the heart of what you do

The content of each module in the Step On: Step up programme builds on the knowledge and skills gained in the last. To gain maximum benefit from the programme, please attend the modules in the order shown below.

Mod 1: Rethinking Leadership

Mod 2: Being an Engaging Manager

Mod 3: Creating a Performance Culture
