Practical People Management

Practical People Management

New dates TBC

11.00am - 5.30pm

People are amazing, have extraordinary potential and are the most valuable element in any cultural organisation. When they are well managed they feel motivated, understand their role and are self-aware about their strengths and development areas. They know how their work makes a crucial difference to the organisation and its audiences.

  • People who manage people
  • People who work with others on a day to day basis and would like to understand how to make the most of those relationships

This course will help you in practical ways, giving you tips and strategies that you can implement the following day. You’ll get a quick but comprehensive grounding in what makes us tick, how we like to be managed and what makes a good manager. With these foundations in place we can have a look at some really practical situations that arise again and again in our working lives and develop practical approaches to really address them.

At the end of this course you will:

  • Understand what motivates the people you work with (and yourself);
  • Have defined a management style that suits you and how you want to work;
  • Have developed some new strategies to address specific people management issues you brought with you;
  • Feel more confident in people management and understand how you can apply this for your own development.
