Course Description

Whether you are called a Team Leader, a Supervisor or a Manager, you will find that a good understanding of management theory and practice can help you to perform more effectively in your role. Now, there is an awful lot of management theory out there, and to cover it all would take a huge amount of time. So, this course is designed to introduce you to a few key theories that focus on the role of personality in management, the need for a situation-based approach and an action based approach. These are models and theories which I have personally found useful and have seen benefit managers who I have trained in my 30+ years in this field. In addition, the course will examine a number of motivation theories to help you gain greater insight into why your people perform in the way that they do and look at what you can do in order to improve motivation within your team.

The course will include discussions, presentations and case studies, and you will also be asked to complete some questionnaires prior to attending classes that will be used during the workshop. The content of the whole course is set, but the content of each class can be adjusted according to progress and the level of discussion required around each topic.

The course is suitable for anyone new to a management role as well as anyone who is already in a management role and is looking to improve their knowledge and skills.

I look forward to working with you soon.
With over 30 years of experience of delivering management training, I have selected a number of key theories that I have personally found useful and have seen have the greatest impact on those managers that I have worked with.

About Me

My name is Paul and I am a business-related skills trainer from the UK. I am a Master Practitioner of NLP and have been working in corporate training for over 30 years now. During that time, I have been lucky enough to work with people from all over the world both at home and abroad, adapting to the cultural needs and different approaches to learning. I have worked with companies in a variety of industries including aviation, rail and bus transportation, contact centres, Human Resources and retail.
One of my recent projects involved ensuring that the right number of staff were available, trained and competent to operate the stations of the brand-new Doha Metro system. I was working with staff from all over Africa, South and South East Asia in a company that was owned largely by the French, so I learned a lot about language and culture during that time.
One of the consequences of all the changes that have happened in the world over the last year is that many businesses have reduced the amount of personal development and skills training that they offer to their staff, as they seek to reduce their costs. At the same time, the need for employees to grow within their roles or to improve their skills for new roles has grown hugely. The online training sessions that I run are an easy and affordable way for people to continue their self-development journey.
So, whether you are a Team Leader, Supervisor, Manager or Leader looking to get the most from your team, someone looking to improve their skills in order to improve in your current job or help set yourself up for a new job, or a front-line employee looking to deliver a great experience for your customers, I have a variety of training sessions that will help you. If you are looking for something specific that is not on my list of subjects, please do contact me and I will be happy to try and assist you.
I really do believe that learning should be fun. That means that any training session with me will be interesting, engaging and will use a variety of techniques. For example, I might present some information, you might complete a questionnaire, we might have a discussion and you might have the opportunity to practise your skills in a case study. Most importantly, at the end of every training session, I want you to be able ‘to do something’ and not just ‘know about something’.

I look forward to working with you.
