Transition to Leadership Training Course


Promotion makes us managers - often with no management experience or training. We sink or swim and our people sink or swim with us. We have our natural leadership style but unless we are aware of it, we will be unable to flex when required and the morale and resilience of the team will be negatively affected.

This programme comprises of four virtual sessions (interactive, facilitator lead) combined with comprehensive pre and post exercises/activities structured and designed to optimise learning methods (job-related experiences, interactions with others and formal models and theory).

Very good examples and live interactions.  Good chance to learn from each other

Enjoyed the course a lot. Plenty to reflect on and digest. Think I've gained some useful skills I can apply at work


  • To enable managers to develop an effective leadership “edge” (attitude/behaviours)

  • To know what to work on to create a high performing climate through a range of leadership behaviours/styles
