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
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
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
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.
