What is the Focus of this QQI People Management Course?

Often, the transition to a management role is made without any training or preparation. Therefore, even the most naturally talented managers can feel unprepared at times. Taking 3 days to complete this People Management Course will help develop your skills and confidence as a manager.

Team motivation and morale has a huge impact on productivity and overall performance. Successful managers lead rather than drive. During this course, we look at your responsibility as a positive role model, how to empower your team and motivate others for top performance.

Training Objectives

Our objectives are that following training, participants will:

  • Discover and Develop Their Management Style

    We devote an entire module of this course to the role of the manager and different management styles. Developing self-awareness is key to understanding how your own style can impact on your ability to manage others and to deliver excellence through your team members. This is the foundation from which outstanding managers grow.
  • Gain a Versatile Management Toolkit

    You will learn a range of management tools including organisational, interpersonal, and motivational techniques as well as an awareness of workplace legislation. The skills you’ll gain can be applied in any working environment.
  • Be Confident to Deliver Results through your Team

    A key feature of this programme is the practical application of the newly learned skills to a range of management situations including adapting your leadership style, communicating effectively, motivating and managing individual and team performance while effectively handling tricky and sometimes difficult situations.
  • Be prepared to gain your QQI Level 6 Credential

    In order to achieve the QQI Level 6 certification in Managing People, you will need to complete assessment work in the 8 weeks following training. You will be working on this during the 3-day workshop and will receive a step-by-step guide from your highly experienced training professional throughout.
