The introduction to management skills training course breakdown

Session 1

The Introduction to management

09:30 - 11:00

After the introductions and housekeeping we go straight into an awesome creative thinking activity to set the tone for the day and get everyone comfortable working in groups. The point to the activity is out of the box thinking

We then look at what makes the perfect manager and analyse the top ten, according to our research

Session 2

What your team needs from you

11:15 - 12:30

After a short comfort break we  take a look at what the team needs from the manager.

During the activity the team discuss and think through not just what, but also how and when. For example, it's easy to say they need communication - but when in "their world" will it happen and how or what will it look like?

The team then make a commitment to make it happen

Session 3

The predictable stages of team development

13:00 - 14:45

After lunch the team learn about "making the boat go faster" which is a message from an Olympian

We then discuss the four natural stages of team development and analyse the current state of the team. It's a scary and revealing activity but the team leave having a better understanding of how to manage everyone in their team

Session 4

One to ones, delegation skills and the one thing

15:00 - 16:30

After our last comfort break its time for one to one meetings - in our view one of the most important parts of managing a team (as long as they are done right).

This naturally leads onto delegation skills. The team take a look at the six steps to delegation and come up with a task they can delegate to a team member after the training session. Delegation, of course, is a training and development tool.
