Managing Workplace Health

  • How to implement wellbeing strategies
  • Awareness of employee health and wellbeing needs
  • Signposting employees

Project Management Basics

Programme summary

All managers work with projects in some way, shape or form, but conflicting demands often means they can be derailed from schedule or lose their focus in the relative scheme of things. Staying on track is often a simple of matter of knowing the simple steps associated with sound project oversight. Over one day you will cover:

  • Project Initiation Documents
  • Objective writing
  • Planning and Milestones
  • Communicating and negotiating conflict
  • Risk management, Leaning log and closure/exit

Managing change

Programme summary

Successful change management depends on effectively engaging the people involved, whether this be mergers, consolidation of work, or a restructure of current services. Recognising and acting upon the human dimension in managing change is critical to success. Over one day you will cover:

  • Change management essentials
  • Change management theory
  • Effect on staff wellbeing
  • Pre-change strategies
  • Implementation
  • Communication and conflict

Performance Management

Performance management is fundamental to the effectiveness of organisations. It is about creating a culture which encourages the continuous improvement of business processes and individuals’ skills, behaviours and contributions. It requires a multifaceted approach linked to organisational strategy. Over one day you will cover:

  • Strategy, whole organisation approach including business aims, job description, person specification, recruitment, induction, talent management, succession planning

Time management and Prioritising

  • Time management strategies
  • Negotiating priorities
  • Exercising self-discipline
  • Controlling interruptions by shaping the behaviour of others whose priorities are not your own
  • Being time effective versus time efficient

Making good decisions and problem solving
