Description

Planning a management development programme?

This short day has been designed to give you a flavour of the modules that make up our hugely successful management development programme.

This very practical, hugely enjoyable day will give you an insight into the delivery techniques and facilitator styles that previous attendees have been so complimentary about. This really is a ‘try-before-you-buy’ workshop. You will be in the role of delegate so you can witness at first-hand how this programme can really benefit your people managers.

And don’t worry – it’s not a sales pitch!

  • If you’re contemplating a development programme for your organisation, it will help you decide whether to design and deliver your own or whether to look for an external provider
  • If you decide to do your own thing, it will give you a few tools and techniques and some sample exercises that you’re free to take away and use as you see fit
  • If you decide to look for an external provider, it will give you a checklist of points to consider
  • And if you were thinking of sending someone on our open programme, or commissioning us to run an in-house programme for you, it’s an opportunity to ‘try before you buy’


Learning objectives

This workshop will help you:

  • Understand the modules that make up the MDP
  • See for yourself what managers need to do to be effective
  • Witness the delivery styles that inspire enthusiasm
  • Pick up some tips and tools for your managers
  • Motivate those who report to you
  • Unpack your thinking by asking as many questions as you wish
  • Have an opportunity to speak with other like-minded L&D professionals
  • Make decisions based on real experience, not just a proposal


Audience

Anyone who has responsibility for management development training in their organisation.
