The ‘first line manager’ role is unique in organisations as this person is the one level who manages ‘non-managers’. This brings its own set of hurdles to overcome, and for people new to managing others there is a lot to learn.

This course is aimed at those new to management; those with about 6 months experience as a manager; or those you are looking to promote in the next few months.


This programme will help new managers learn about:

how their job changes the friendship and management relationship
the key challenges ahead so they can avoid early mistakes
how not to do it all themselves and delegate things to help
managing workloads and deadlines, especially customer demands
dealing with the early stages of people problems and conflict
developing their team through coaching and team work
running team briefings
giving 1-2-1 reviews and coaching feedback
managing the day-to-day priorities of their team whilst managing their own day job
developing a ‘tool-kit’ of techniques and skills which they can use to cope with issues they will face as they grow into their new job
Overall, being a new manager can be tough; and a practical toolkit of best practice do’s and don’ts will really help new managers avoid mistakes, and feel more equipped to cope in the early days.

Who should attend
Team leaders, supervisors and project managers with up to one years experience in their new role
High potentials who look to be promoted in the next 6 months
Technical and project leads who would like to ‘up skill’ on their management techniques
