Workshop summary
This workshop takes place over three sessions. Participants are required to attend all sessions. Full details can be found on the Sessions tab.

This course is for those who have not done any management training before or those who would like a refresher. It is an opportunity to explore the tensions, responsibilities and rewards of management with other managers.

You may have many years' managerial experience or may be new to a management role. You have probably spent several years attaining proficiency in your specialist area, but as a manager, you have a whole new skill-set to acquire!

The course is experiential with plenty of opportunity to related management theory to your current situation. We encourage you to share real-life management challenges with one another and to coach each other to discover possible solutions.
