Management Development

Course Overview

It’s our belief that an organization is only as good as the effectiveness of its people. Recruiting, rewarding and retaining first class leaders and managers is vital to the growth and success of your business. Achieving your goals, even in challenging economic times, is the ultimate leadership challenge. But it’s doable. You can achieve them by developing a more skillful, situational, inclusive, supportive and flexible management style.

We will work with you to establish the current skill base of the managers in your organization. We’ll also discuss which of the issues you’re facing need to be addressed through managers and the wider business. We’ll identify any learning needs and underlying skill gaps, and then deliver our recommended development program outline to you.  Post support and mentoring is used as a follow on.

  • Time, Resources, Energy and Money:  Why Management Training Needs to Work

    Properly training your managers is going to take all these things. But the cost of not doing them will always be greater.

    Good managers are crucial to your company’s success.

    In fact, managers can have the single largest impact on your organization’s productivity and overall profitability, with more influence over employee morale and performance than anyone else.

    But, good management doesn’t just ‘happen’. Managers don’t intrinsically know how to bring out the best in people, how best to delegate or how to manage their own, and their team’s, time effectively.

    While there are numerous training packages for managers available, most are ‘one-size-fits-all’, costly, uninspiring and bear no relation to your company’s unique culture and goals.


    Full-circle training… for every scenario

    From hiring and induction to dynamic working and health and wellbeing, these 15 modules help managers improve across the core areas of management responsibility.

    Each one will be enriched with captivating ideas, thought-provoking questions and innovative approaches that are directly aligned to your business.


    Your training… your choice… your pace

    You might want your managers to complete all 15 modules in bite-sized chunks over any period of time.

    Or you might pick and choose specific modules that align with your L&D program and wider corporate agenda, depending on what your business needs are at any one time.

    These modules are your training, designed with you and bespoke to your organization.

    Which means you decide what’s included, when it happens and who does it.


    Immersive training… real-life scenarios

    Focusing on the why, what and how of management responsibility, your managers will enjoy innovative and engaging workshop sessions run by qualified trainers from Maximum Performance International.

    We know how people learn best, and that’s through bite-sized learning that engages and excites… a mix of formal and informal learning, all based on real-life scenarios and challenges in your business.

    Custom-built training… to steer your managers to success.

  • The following Modules are not the final list, we will adapt, add and omit modules to create the program which meets the needs of your organization.


    Each module will be designed to be delivered over a 90 minute session and can be delivered virtually.

    These are suggestions and a starting point for discussion.
