MAX Effective Leadership and Management Skills



The business world has evolved and continues to evolve rapidly.  New technology, new legislation and new ways of working mean that the modern Manager is no longer just a Manager, who can rely on positional power, age old management principles and a one dimensional management style to get the job done.  

The modern Manager needs to inspire exceptional performance from a wide range of people with different skill sets and motivations.  

The modern Manager can't just manage in the traditional sense, they need to show leadership, they need to coach, they need to train, they need to motivate, they need to engender great teamwork and they need to get each and every member of their team focused and contributing effectively to achieve the desired result.  

This programme seeks to enable Managers to develop 21st century management and leadership skills. 

Aim of the programme

To enable you to utilise the key skills, principles and processes of leadership and management, to maximise your own and your individual team member's performance, in line with the goals and results you are charged by your company to achieve.

What the delegates say: 

'Thank you. I now feel I have a framework that will enable me to get the best out of myself and the team.'

'I didn't want to attend the programme when my GM put me on it, but I am so glad I came as it has really opened my eyes to better ways to motivate my team.

'The Discovery profile and concept have helped me understand my own management style and to identify the different working styles my team members have. I am now looking forward to adapting and connecting with each of them more effectively.'

'I wish I had this training when I started in management. It has helped me see that there are simple and effective ways to motivate and develop my team.'

'As a chef this is the first training I have had to help me lead and manage.  I can now see that effective delegation will develop the team and free me up to work on the business not just work hard in the business.'

'Thank you I took a lot from the programme. I have a number of key action points and I am looking forward to implementing them.'

'What opened my eyes is that I need to work smarter not harder and I need to do the same for my team. Thank you, this programme has shown me how.'

'I liked the fact this programme was very practical and I could use the stuff we talked about in the real world. I had been on a management programme in the past which was a lot of theory that did not fit into my working day. Thank you for keeping it real.'
