Managing for Results

Loading Information

Make the powerful personal and professional transition needed to evolve from managing yourself to effectively managing others – especially in times of managing in the 'new normal.'

This action-orientated, experiential and transformative course is ideal for new managers and managers wanting to optimise their performance. It gives you the unique opportunity to see how subordinates and superiors see you and your performance, and to get feedback. 

You will learn from your peers, coach, and accountability partner; craft your own Personal Development Plan and leadership style; and develop the skills required to execute the responsibilities of a first-line management position in a complex and unpredictable business environment. 

Also included in the programme is a 360-degree feedback about your management skills, as well as the opportunity to engage with this feedback during small group coaching facilitated by our expert coaches.
