Great course for new and existing managers!

I have recently been promoted to a manager and had no managerial or leadership experience. This course was very informative and has given me great confidence for my new role. With the course being Read More practical based, it was much better to learn than having a presentation. Questions raised were answered with a helpful and informative manner. I definitely feel that what I took away from the course will have an impact on my role and will help with all aspects, from giving tasks to staff to having those conversations regarding performance.

-Kylie – 15th June 2019 – Leadership Skills Training Course

Leadership course

The course was beneficial, learnt a lot from it, stuff that i have already implemented

-Thomas Strows – 22nd May 2019 – Leadership Skills Training Course

Leadership skills

Was only a small course with 3 people there. Liked Andrew a lot but psychological theory of people/employees time took over the actual pointers in how to deal with situations in the workplace. I did Read More appreciate the need for the background research on employees behaviours and subsequently how to handle their behaviour but it felt too much for the short course I’ve atttended.
No reflection in Andrew just too big a topic for one day,

Great Course – Just What I Needed

Thanks for a great course. I learnt a lot during the day, some of which I’ve used immediately and seen instant results.
