About Management Training Courses from Activia
Organisations, however successful, cannot survive without professional management, and examples abound where this has been proved. Although it may be difficult to remember Apple as an uncontrolled loss-making computer maker, this was the case. It was only the act of kicking Bill Gates out of his own company that forced him to rethink, learn how to succeed, and come back stronger than ever. But there are much easier ways to acquire the expertise you need!
One effect of the Recession was to create a leaner, meaner business environment where only the fittest survive. Strategies had to be adopted to monitor performance, raise efficiency and improve control. In other words, it raised the management stakes, and even as economies and markets improve, the most successful companies will remember those lessons. What’s more, they will invest in continual management improvement in order to protect the advantage they have gained.
Where does your organisation stand with its management training and development programme?
The Need for management training and development
The need for managers who can perform effectively is therefore essential in modern business. They must be able to demonstrate their management styles and skills with confidence and conviction and draw on a range of approaches to suit each situation.
Professional management means making decisions of the highest quality, and this is more likely to be the result of an organised and informed approach than on the quantity of work put in.
Ongoing development should be provided for both existing and newly appointed managers, so they can continually develop their leadership styles and deal with key areas of effective management, including motivation, delegation and managing stress.
A good management training programme is vitally important for successful management and can yield impressive results.
How Activia's courses can help you
Our portfolio of Management Skills courses offers a wealth of choice to all executives wanting to realise their management potential across a variety of disciplines and essential business skills. To make things easier to find, we have split the courses into sections as follows (click the buttons on the right for more information):
Management Skills gives delegates an overview of the role, as well as specific courses in Decision making and change.
Project Management is aimed primarily at people who are moving into the role, or fulfil it as part of their job, and provides all the skills needed to deliver projects on time, on budget, and on scope.
Managing People is about getting the most from individuals, both by performance management and motivation.
Supervision and Teams is concerned with the huge subject of supervising staff, building and developing teams, delegation and facilitation.
HR and Coaching deals with how to coach people on the job, and there is also a great course called HR for Non-HR Managers, which, as its name suggests, gives a good overview of best practice (though not a legal framework) for operating in today's highly regulated business environment.
Finally, Accounts and Finance provides a good understanding of how important Finance is, and how decisions can have a measurable impact on the performance of an organisation. Our Finance for Non Finance Managers gives a great one-day foundation.
With Activia, delegates can check their skill level which ensures they book on the correct course. This facility is also invaluable when putting together training programmes or bespoke courses for numbers of delegates.
We can also tailor your Management training to your needs, or to your company project requirements, taking you from first principles to whatever level you want to achieve.
