The role of the manager and clarifying expectations, natural career path for great engineers!!!

Intensive Workshop on June 14th - 15th, 2017

Designed to progress and support people from a variety of vocational backgrounds, to increase their management and communication skills within a technical environment - molding them in to effective team leaders and managers.

Going from being a technical expert to a leader of people often requires a different focus. Technical experts have often been promoted to leadership roles because they are very knowledgeable and experienced in their subject matter, but when it comes to people things often seem a bit more complex. Rather than being the expert, the technical leader needs to transfer technical expertise to team members to support their development and to increase performance which may require some new behaviours. Fortunately, the skills that most technical managers already possess can, with the right understanding, be used to enhance performance, address issues and create an engaged workforce.

A fundamental challenge for most leaders is motivating good performers to keep up the good work and coaching poor performers to do better, as well as managing the people above. In short, a leader has to be skilled at managing human behaviour. Fortunately, we don’t need a psychology degree to effectively manage performance. What we do need is a basic understanding of the rules of behaviour and some practical strategies to apply those philosophies.

This two-day training course is designed to provide an understanding of how people behave in the workplace together with simple but effective tools to guide and motivate staff and to deal constructively with performance issues. The workshop is skills based, interactive and even entertaining.

In order to be a good boss, it is important to be able to manage people effectively. After all, it is ground-level employees that are responsible for much of an organization's physical output - whether this is in term of goods or services. Managing people effectively is vital if they are to work to optimum productivity levels each day - remember happy staff members tend to be more hard working and loyal to their organization.

So if you are working in a managerial position, what should you be doing to encourage the best possible performance from your team? What exactly do the best bosses do to be successful? Here is our list of top behaviours and characteristics for effective people management:On the other hand what makes you a great engineer usually makes you a poor manager at the same time. If you spend all day long coding, you don’t have enough time for people in your team. And they do need your attention. They do much more often than you’d think. If you’re going to be a decent manager big part of your time will be reserved on managerial tasks. There won’t be enough time left to keep on technical track!!! This two-day course will provide managers with proven techniques of people management which are directly applicable to the workplace!!!
