Course Overview

Making the transition from doing work yourself to supervising and managing others can feel overwhelming at the start. It wasn’t that long ago you were working alongside your colleagues as one of the team and now you’ve been given the role of supervisor or team leader. For many new supervisors this can be a real challenge.

How to Manage and Motivate Your Team (for new supervisors) is a course designed to help minimise the stress of being a new manager, by targeting five specific areas. You’ll learn to successfully handle staff, manage team projects, conflicts and manage your own time and priorities. Many attendees have told us that this is the training they should have received at the very beginning of their new role, not months or years after starting and struggling.
