'An absolutely brilliant training session ..... It was the best training course I’ve ever attended.'

Programme Overview

This Leadership, Strategic Thinking and Management development programme will effectively deliver a top level mini-MBA plus package; with the plus factor being numerous practical examples and real world applications. You will be directly able to apply your new skills and strategic thinking to growing your own business. Being successful within an increasingly complex and fast moving world, with flatter management structures, requires a firm grasp and an in depth understanding of a range of leadership, strategic management, tactical and functional management concepts and skills.

This course will provide the essential knowledge of those key leadership and management issues and concepts that are needed by successful Directors, Managers, Senior Executives and Consultants in order to remain ahead of their competition. The successful completion of this course will provide the delegates with the leadership and management capabilities to successfully grow their businesses in a sustainable and profitable manner. It will also provide a sound theoretical and practical knowledge base upon which to build and acquire new and more advanced leadership and management skills, as well as to recognise and be able to develop the same qualities within their own management teams.

Attendees will become highly skilled at the initiation and management of successful and profitable business growth. You will become more involved with all types of strategic discussions within your organisation. You will be more confident and comfortable when communicating in all areas of leadership and management with directors, senior executives, investors, banks, suppliers and key clients.

Internal Staff Training and Development

This training workshop, along with most of our other best practice training workshops, can be delivered as an internal training course at your premises. Even with groups as small as 6-8 delegates, the course fees per person for internal training workshops can be lower than for open events. The potential savings are even greater, if the travel time and the travel costs of the delegates are included.

Running training workshops internally is very convenient and it allows the participants to explore how key issues will impact on them and their organization. Then as a team they can begin to agree upon a development action plan, with priorities. This approach is favoured by many of our clients as it combines a high quality service with excellent value for money and is a highly effective route for staff development.
