Management short courses


FMI’s New Manager Training Program is designed to support team members making the transition to a management role. During the program participants learn about the role of a manager, people skills, how to lead the team to work effectively and how to enhance team performance.

This practical, work based program is typically delivered over 6 -12 weeks and combines 3 to 6 or more days of workshops with a Management Application Project (MAP). The workshops cover topics such as time management, communication, emotional intelligence, conflict management and delegation. The program content can integrate examples, case studies and resources from your organisation to enhance relevance and practical application.

Following the workshops, participants will complete a Management Application Project (MAP) over two months. The self-directed, experiential project supports participants to identify management related opportunities, issues, tasks and problems and take the initiative to address them in a timely and cost effective way. Projects can be designed to benefit peers, customers, the wider organisation and other key stakeholders.
