Practical management skills training programs

No class found


The challenge of leading and managing other people is both exciting and demanding. Leaders and managers (both new and experienced) play a vital role in making sure that the team performs. They need good team and people management skills as well as a thorough understanding of the technical aspects of their work. They need to plan and organise work and time well, often in turbulent rapidly changing environments. Leaders and managers must make effective work decisions using a range of strategies and decision making tools. They also need to lead teams through change and continually improve the way work is carried out.

Reading a training program overview is often not enough to make a decision about whether that program is suitable for your team or organisation.

Here at FMI we have a wealth of knowledge and experience in management and leadership which we are happy to share with you. If you would like to chat about your particular needs we can advise you on suitable learning and development solutions for you, even if it includes services that we do not currently offer.
