The Essentials of People Management


This one day course is designed to help new managers learn the fundamentals of effective people management. From initial appointment through to exit, new managers are often unsure about how to recruit, induct, motivate and monitor the people in their team. More often than not, new managers will avoid the ‘difficult’ conversations about performance or attendance, through lack of confidence and experience.
