Our next course details

"Scrub up well as a manager: A no frills guide to being a better manager" is our new course. Go beyond the basics you might find in a google search or a formulaic 'how to be a manager course'... this Manage and Thrive Training course offers tools and skills to make a real difference to your success as a manager.

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.

Aim: To provide insight, tools and techniques that you can apply, to help you to improve your performance in your management role.
Manage and Thrive Training offers 'short and sharp' focussed training. The idea is to give you the essentials, so you can apply them and start to thrive in your management role.  

So invest in yourself, go beyond 'just managing' and start to thrive - at work and at home. Book your place now.

At some point, the annual ‘employee engagement questionnaire’ is emailed around by an HR manager.  Members of staff are instructed to rate their experience for a number of key aspects. Responses are analysed.  A summary is later sent to senior management, and perhaps the rest of the employees.  For the employee, its forgotten for 12 months, apart from perhaps a brief email about results.  Everyone feels very jolly, miserable or indifferent.

People are often recruited or promoted into management roles with little or no training and support. The skills of 'doing the job' are one aspect of success (or even just making life a little bit easier for now). Looking and being the part can be as important though.

This course includes elements of project management, time management, team and people management, and other hints and tips. You gain knowledge and skills that you can implement immediately.

This is great for people who are new into a 'management' role, or for those who are being loaded up with more and more 'management' tasks.


Some testimonials:

"A great session with helpful guidelines, processes and tips! Delivered in a personal and relaxed way that enables you to engage and contribute."

"Really useful session, and useful to discuss other peoples' experiences."

"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."


The content is for managers in any sector or business, of any age, at any point in the organisation's career ladder. The benefit that transcends all of this is improving your core skills and knowledge. This benefit can be taken and applied immediately, regardless of the manager's actual specialisation.
