Management Development

22nd and 23rd October 2019

SQT Training

Research tells us that one of the main reasons why employees leave organisations is because of the style of management/leadership they experience. To be an effective manager/ leader in today’s organisations requires more than the cognitive skills needed to plan, organise and execute.

A successful manager/leader must firstly know themselves and then develop a leadership style which is true to who they are, but also motivates and enables success in those around them. Our program will facilitate a process of self-understanding, learning and practise in the core skills which develop true management skills.
