Management skills smörgåsbord for growing and established companies

By Sara Baxter, Cambridge Network


Whether you’re steering a startup towards growth or maintaining the momentum of an established company, well-honed management skills are crucial for achieving strategic goals and sustaining a competitive edge. Just like a buffet-style smorgasbord, there are numerous options to choose from when developing management skills with Cambridge Network. We offer essential staples like Giving Feedback, Effective Delegation, and Managing Performance, as well as specialised areas that add depth and value, such as Situational Leadership, Developing Teams, and Managing Difficult Conversations.

Recently, Cambridge Network has received numerous inquiries about diverse management training options and the best ways to address crucial topics within management teams. Our most effective approach has been to provide a curated list of key topics that organisations can select from based on their specific needs. We then schedule sessions to fit within the preferred timeline, delivering each subject on-site, virtually, or through a combination of both. This method ensures that all relevant employees are included while minimizing time away from their jobs. We can accommodate multiple locations and time zones, whether it’s Cambridge, London, or further afield.
