Leadership for New and First Line Managers


What’s it all about?


New Managers frequently have concerns about being adequately prepared to deal with diverse situations and a demanding workforce.  This introductory course will arm your manager with a greater self-awareness by leading teams in different scenarios.  Through practical workshops and critique from peers and our own facilitators, your managers will identify their key strengths and produce an action plan for implementation upon return to work.

Who for?

  • New Shift and Team Leaders
  • Fast Track Managers and older Graduates
  • Managers looking for new skills to deal with challenging situations at work.


  • An increased self-awareness of management style.
  • A chance to discuss openly how to deal with situations at work
  • An opportunity to look at situations from a different (positive?) viewpoint.
  • A safe place to receive direct and relevant feedback on performance.
  • A reward for good work.

Can this be developed?


Yes.  MBTI Type Indicator is a great psychometric tool for this course.  Many companies go for two or four-day modules.  The longer the course then the more intensive the learning.
