Fully Funded Essential Management Skills Training

Monday, October 31 at 11:25

You may be thinking, ‘Why do I need management skills training?’ I’ll get straight to the point.Here are 5 simple reasons:1. An employee’s relationship with their manager is the most important single factor in employee engagement and business growth. High performing skilled managers make the difference! Engaged employees are happier and more productive. Disengaged employees are frustrated and more disruptive.2. Because there’s no agreed skill set for management (good managers come in all shapes and sizes), there’s an assumption everyone knows how to do it. This is like someone who’s never driven a car before being given keys and told, “Drive!”3. The basics of good management: communication, setting targets, managing people performance, giving honest feedback and, most importantly, managing your time effectively and efficiently and good delegation. These skills aren’t rocket science. In fact, they’re way easier than rocket science.  Which is why companies should get them right.4. Respected, well-trained managers boost morale. Improved morale boosts business growth. We all know the expense of a slump in business and the damage this can do to team morale.5. Bad PR! If it should happen, the buck stops with the incompetent managers.A free course for small businesses in and around Greater ManchesterTotal Excellence Centre are offering a fantastic opportunity to take part in a fully funded, highly participative, 2 day course for Essential Management Skills.
