This new programme complements the Learning Institute’s existing management and leadership development provision, and provides people with some of the core skills for managing both themselves - including time and workload management - and managing relationships with colleagues. The seminars which form the new Managing Yourself programme are particularly aimed at and relevant for support staff, staff supervisors and first line managers.
Participants can sign up for everything or pick and choose the components which are of most relevance.
Details of the seminars are as follows:
Assertiveness: managing relationships in the workplace: this seminar aims to build confidence through discussions in pairs, groups, self-assessment and by practising real-life situations.
