Organisations need managers that can get the best from their teams, and achieve sustainable results, whilst dealing with fluid and changeable situations. Whether you are new to  management or an experienced manager, it is challenging to manage people and resources effectively and deal with day-to-day issues.

This programme provides the essential managerial toolkit for people to refresh or hone their craft in an increasingly fast-paced, inter-generational and digital workplace. It also pays attention to the most important tool of all – the manager themselves!

One of the fundamentals of the programme is the belief that we can manage and lead others in a way that is individual to us. To achieve this, alongside working with a wide range of models, theories and ideas on key aspects of managing yourself and others, we use questionnaires, peer feedback and self-reflection, to give participants a clear picture of existing preferences, style and behaviours and explore how this might impact on their role as a manager.


Why should you attend this programme?

  • Discover a wide range of tools and techniques for managing yourself and others
  • Learn how to support and develop others in a way that enhances their performance
  • Develop the confidence to tackle difficult people management situations
  • Understand the shift from previous day-to-day roles and focus on achieving results through others
  • Learn when and how to adapt your management style to the changing nature of organisations

My experience of Roffey was phenomenal. It bought me to a state of self-recognition of what I can achieve in the future.

Since I attended the course I have taken on a secondment position and the programme gave me the confidence to go for this. It was a great experience and I really valued the time spent with the facilitators and other participants.
