efficient management training
Go beyond managing. Thrive.

Focussed management and leadership training to individuals and to organisations
We provide stand-alone courses, each one with a discrete aim and objectives.  These provide knowledge and skills which attendees can implement straight away.  We pride ourselves on supplying you with time efficient training, so we can help you cover as much ground as possible.  The information is complete and constitutes a self-contained training package.

Some of our management and leadership courses
  • Project management in a nutshell, our ‘No Fuss’ skills course
quick intro to project management
Aim:  Learn the basic ethos, tools and techniques of project management, in an informal atmosphere where we can share learning and the benefit of our experience.
Summary:  Almost everything we do has some element of ‘project management.’ This course is an amalgamation of useful project management concepts and tools, learned through training and from applied experience. In essence, the content goes beyond what you may think of as ‘project management’ and should be applicable to whatever you need to do. It can even be applied to your life outside of work. Standard duration:  3 hours 15 minutes (half-day training course). 
  • Project Risk Management, our tools and techniques for immediate use
Standard duration:  3 hours 15 minutes (half-day training course)
Check out our case study page about the Project Management in a Nutshell course.  This is within the context of an individual person booking onto a course, but equally shows how a business or other organisation could benefit from it.  Or - watch our short video here:
"A truly educational experience, which allowed me to engage with the design of research projects in a more efficient and logical fashion. In academia, we are not generally taught how to manage a project although it becomes fundamental at both design and delivery stages. An interactive and stimulating course to get the basic knowledge and apply it in the real world."
project risk management training
Aim:  Learn an approach to manage risks, along with tools and techniques that you can apply immediately.
Summary: This course provides you with an insight into the idea of ‘risk,’ providing you with an approach, and some tools and techniques that you'll be able to apply immediately in your role. If you've been asked to put together a project risk register, or if this is an area of project management you need more support with, then this course is for you. 
Watch our short video about the course for more insight.
Standard duration: 4 hours (1/2 day management training course)

  • New to management? Vital skills for successful managers
how to be a better manager
"A great session with helpful guidelines, processes and tips! Delivered in a personal and relaxed way that enables you to engage and contribute." Stef M, Service Manager
"Really useful session, and useful to discuss other peoples' experiences." Skye N
"With a clear and focused approach this course has helped me to revisit some past management experience, while introducing new strategies, ideas and methods for more successful management practices." Willa King, Kothaar Kitchen  
Aim:  Get an insight and learn tools and techniques that you can apply today, to help you to improve your performance in your management role.
Summary:  We don't really get told how to 'manage' at work, it is assumed.  So when we are promoted from specific roles into management roles, people can struggle, and often with no help from their boss or the wider organisation. This training opportunity isn’t about learning to pass a test or getting a few letters for the CV.  It is about you acquiring management essentials in a short period of time, without massively impacting on your busy schedule.
Go beyond the traditional ‘how to be a manager’ and make a real impact.
Standard duration: 3.5 hours (half day management training course)

  • Better Management through Inclusive Behaviours
inclusivity training
Aim: To give attendees an insight into their biases and to know themselves, and to use this understanding to benefit their team through inclusivity, in line with the Equality Act 2010.
Summary: Are you inclusive in all that you do? Or do you just associate with those that are just like you? Knowing yourself, before you know others is a great place to start. Whether you manage or lead others or are part of a team, understanding yourself and your biases will allow you to challenge behaviour that is not inclusive. This course delivers personal awareness training, underpinned by the Equality Act 2010 and the need for businesses and teams to recognise the business benefits of an inclusive and diverse workforce.
Standard duration: 3 hours
