This course is aimed at managers who set strategic direction for their teams.

In the course we look at the personal resources you have available as a manager and a leader, and how to make the best of them.

We focus on how to lead a department or team when you don’t have close contact with them all on a daily basis, either because the team is too large or too remote.

All attendees will receive a free engineer360 feedback report when attending this programme.

Who should attend?

We have designed this programme for existing line managers. Participants are typically engineers or other technical professionals who have experience in a man-management role and now want to take their skills to the next level as a business leader.

How will I benefit?

    After the course you will be able to:

  • Set strategy for your team, to contribute fully to your company’s vision and mission 
  • Motivate, manage and communicate with your team to engage them fully in the company’s goals;
  • Successfully manage and implement change programmes that will stick and be embedded in normal business practice 
  • See when conflict is occurring and manage it effectively 
  • Manage 360° - not only your team, but also your manager, your peers and most importantly yourself, to operate consistently at personal peak performance
Contributes 14 CPD hours

A useful course that quickly identified areas for me to develop and improve in my daily management tasks and also personally. Having the course tutored by a professional engineers was a real benefit.
