The New Manager in You!

The New Manager in You!

Objective /Benefits


We have all heard before that, what makes a good worker need not necessarily make a good manager. Similarly, what worked well in the past may not be sufficient to support the new manager to be effective. The transitional shift for an individual member of any organization to the position of responsibility as a manager is probably the single most challenging factor in organizational life. In every given situation, there is a profound need to transform our thinking about work and relationships by learning new skills and knowledge.
This specially designed 2-day training helps develop and refine managerial skills for both those people starting out in management, as well as those who are more experienced. The course empowers you to optimize the effective functioning of your daily tasks. Your active participation in our program provides you with a rigorous training environment, enabling you to apply and sustain your learning with the aim of forming winning habits. 

The New Manager In You! focuses on the following areas:
•    Coaching
•    Communication
•    Leadership
•    Problem solving and decision making
•    Time management


After completing the training, you should be able to:
•    Handle the new role of managerial leadership
•    Use various communication strategies to develop winning solutions
•    Create solid teamwork
•    Solve problems and make decisions effectively
•    Resolve conflicts professionally


To change your direction, shift your thinking.
However long ago you learnt to ride a bicycle, it’s likely an experience you’ve never forgotten. The skill remains with you today. When was your last corporate training program? How much of what was learnt is actively applied in your business today? Are all that remains the workshop manuals left on your shelf? 
Our programs are initiatives that last. They encourage new ways of thinking. They open up ways to create extraordinary achievements. We believe individual behavior and attitude contribute significantly to the overall excellence of your organization. So we focus on what really matters.
Our unique methodology of combining experiential, instructional and discovery learning, and supported by modern coaching technology, creates powerful shifts in attitudes and behavior that will encourage sustainable change in your organization. These changes make an impact on results where it matters.
In our programs, you can expect an extensive use of case studies, debriefing, dyads, facilitated coaching, feedback, games and activities, group discussions, lectures, psychodramas, simulations, story-telling and structured instruments.
