Team Central Short Courses
Who should attend
Managers new to the University or with little previous management experience. Also suitable for those with supervisory responsibilities or those looking to move into management.
Moving into management can be daunting. So much to learn, and so many extra responsibilities. This course will help you to ease into the role, giving you knowledge and considering the skills you need in a number of key topics.

Topics covered will include:
The people side of management - taking people with you
Managing remotely - the extra challenges
Motivation - what are the things that are likely to motive your team members?
Team building - turning a group into a team
Developing your team members
Personal effectiveness - getting it all done!
