Become a successful line manager
Whether you’re a natural leader or want to improve your management skills, this 5-week course will teach you the people management skills you need on your journey towards becoming a successful line manager.
It can be daunting to become a new line manager, but preparation and confidence are key. The aim of this course is to make that transition easier and stress-free so that you can thrive in your new role.
Discover your leadership style
To become a great line manager, you must first discover your leadership style. You’ll gain an understanding of different management styles and learn how to adapt your style when necessary.
The course will also teach you how to adapt your management style to COVID-19, as many work environments have had to grow or change in the wake of the pandemic. You’ll learn how to manage a remote team and find out how gamification can help keep your team motivated.
