Learning objectives

This programme concentrates on skills and knowledge required by managers to be effective in their role. By the end of this course you should be able to:

  • Have the tools to communicate strategy, gain buy-in and set common goals
  • Practise effective planning skills
  • Utilise networking skills to foster professional links both inside and outside the University
  • Use effective decision-making tools to manage priorities
  • Build on the experiences and skills of speakers and fellow participants

Session approach

This is a three-day interactive workshop which fosters learning within a practical environment. The course includes speakers and will introduce you to some tools and concepts to build your personal manager’s toolkit. There will be opportunities to discuss issues or problems you are encountering and to build a toolbox of strategies and resources to assist you in your role.

Extra workshops for participants in this programme are being run under the Sharpening the Saw programme.
