Establishing a sense of leadership and the basics of management.

To a significant extent, the success of a manager is decided in the first few weeks. It is essential to discuss the future tasks and roles of managers even before they commence a new position. The same is true for experts who have already gained experience of managerial responsibilities. It is important to identify personal strengths and to use these as a starting point when developing approaches for a personal style of leadership. This gives people to confidence to build relationships with key players in the team and to win over the group of employees as a whole.

Participants discover which management approaches can help to manage these tasks in different situations and what effect they have on employees.
