At Lincoln International Business School we are committed to supporting businesses of all sizes and sectors in the development of the key skills required to lead and manage others effectively. This six-month programme is designed for people wishing to become more confident and skilled in managing others, and become better leaders either now or in the future and combines workshops, personal reflection and company visits to develop skills, confidence and professional networks.
Businesses and individuals can realise the following potential benefits to them and their organisation:
Anyone wishing to develop their fundamental management skills; learners range from recent graduates and first line managers, to middle managers to senior leaders all with the shared aim of becoming better managers and leaders for their organisations and career aims.
The six-workshops give delegates the opportunity to understand management tools and have the chance to try new ideas and ways of working in a safe environment with the support of an expert tutor and the support of your co-learners from a range of companies in the region. The time between workshops gives you the chance to try those new ideas out in the workplace, and reflect on your successes, and share your challenges next time.
The company visits give delegates an insight into how some local organisations lead and manage their people giving you the chance to take away a few ideas back to your own business and a behind the scenes look into the regions’ successful organisations.
The webinars give further insight into key management and leadership topics, lasting just an hour, you and your mentor/line manager can log into these webinars and learn from leadership experts on a range of topics such as delegation, personal impact and networking.
