Being promoted to a management position can be an exciting step in furthering your career. Nevertheless, undertaking the new challenges that arise from managing people and ever-changing landscapes can also feel like a daunting task, even more so when doing it remotely.

Recent times have shown managers the need to be compassionate, emotionally intelligent, and responsive to unexpected situations.

Attend this specifically designed online course to build your confidence as a manager and lead your team to greater success.

This virtual Leadership Skills for Emerging Managers course gives you the core practical skills to manage and lead your teams to success remotely or in the office. Specially designed for those with little experience of managing people, it tackles the key elements of line management, from goal setting to delegation.

Attend this engaging virtual course to hear about different styles of leadership, and discover which style works best for you and your team through individual questionnaires, reflective learning, and practical group exercises in breakout rooms. Take away the skills to deal with some of the more difficult aspects of people management, including handling challenging conversations, giving negative feedback, and managing poor performance.
