You will learn about your own work style  and see how this helps and hinders your time management.

You will also learn how to:

  • establish and plan in your own priorities
  • plan work around your most productive times
  • deal with interruptions so they cause minimal impact
  • avoid procrastination and ‘swallow the frog’!
  • set goals with time lines and milestones
  • decide if a task is urgent , or important, or both
  • make your Outlook or diary work for you.

Transition to Leadership on Thursday 15 & Friday 16 September is an interactive, reflective and highly practical course, leading to concrete actions to achieve success through positive and engaging leadership behaviours.

Promotion makes us managers - but often with no man management experience or training. We sink or swim and our people sink or swim with us. Some of us are good at 'getting it done'  - but what damage may we cause along the way?

We all have our own natural leadership style, but unless we are aware of it we will be unable to flex when required, and the morale and resilience of the team will be negatively affected.

This two day event is designed to highlight what is important, what you currently 'measure up to' and where you can change to ensure greater leadership success.
