CPD & ILM Approved

Course Description 

A leader doesn’t necessarily have to be a ‘manager’, but it’s difficult to see how a manager could be truly effective without having at least some leadership skills. 

This course starts by introducing the basics of leadership and explores where the concept originated from. It then goes on to discuss various leadership theories, including situational leadership, contingency theories, transactional and transformational leadership and more. It then moves on to discuss developing teams including and team members by looking at the role leaders play in this. The final two modules cover the role communication plays in effective leadership and finishes off with a module about moving forward together to achieve a shared vision. 

Target Audience: 

This course is aimed at supervisors and managers that want to develop more effective relationships with members of their teams.  The course can be a great starting point for people new to their leadership role as well as more established managers that want to enhance their skills. This acts as a great introduction to the subject.
 
This course can be sold to individuals who are doing the training for themselves or it can be pitched to businesses who might want to put all of their first line management team through the training, so they are all work in the same way and have the same skill set.

Advantages: 

CPD approval means that this course can be used by those that need to prove they are continually developing themselves.
ILM approval means that this course can provide candidates with a recognised management qualification.

A strong leader will motivate their team, improving morale and efficiency and ensure that their team is of a common purpose. 

Online training is flexible, efficient and cost effective meaning the candidate can progress through the modules at their own pace and in their own time, so they can fit the training around their work and personal life

Further Progression:

For candidates that want to add more qualifications to their CV our Introduction to Emotional Intelligence course is a great introduction to that aspect of Leadership and management. 
 
For candidates specifically interested in developing resilient teams our Developing Teamwork course goes hand in hand with this one and expands on some of the key ideas and how they can be applied to teams.
 
For candidates new to management roles Managing Meetings would be a great next step although working through any of our range of Business Skills courses would be valuable.

Duration: 90 minutes

FEATURED COURSE – Conflict Resolution in the Workplace

Conflict resolution

CPD Approved

Course Description 

The Confederation of British Industry estimates that the cost of workplace conflict is around £33 Billion each year. It also estimates that up to 20% of leaders time is spent dealing with conflict and then there are the intangible costs such as reduction in loyalty, commitment, motivation, teamwork and morale.


This course starts by explaining what constitutes conflict in the workplace before moving on to look at some of the most common causes and the effects this can have on the workforce. 

It covers the stages and build up to a workplace conflict and contains several extensive modules that outline conflict resolution techniques that can be applied at any stage of this build up. 

As well as the negative impacts of conflict  the course also explores how effective management of conflict can result in positive outcomes in the workplace. These can be the development of shared ideas, the ability to reach compromises through increased trust and creating an environment where differences of opinion are celebrated and considered rather than shut down. 

Target Audience

This course is aimed at supervisors and managers that want to develop effective conflict resolution methods. The course can be a great starting point for people new to their leadership role as well as more established managers that want to enhance their skills. This acts as a great introduction to the subject and covers the key concepts and theories relating to conflict management.
 
This course can be sold to individuals who are doing the training for themselves or it can be pitched to businesses who might want to put all of their first line management team through the training, so they are all work in the same way and have the same skill set.

Advantages

Left unmanaged workplace conflict can be damaging to relationships, team morale and ultimately the company’s bottom line. Having a knowledge of effective conflict resolution techniques and strategies and taking a proactive approach to resolving issues will lead to a better work environment and more effective teams. 

CPD approval means that this course can be used by those that need to prove they are continually developing themselves.

Online training is flexible, efficient and cost-effective, so candidates can progress through the modules at their own pace, in their own time, making it easy to fit the training around their work and personal life.

Further Progression

Beyond this topic we offer a range of other business skills courses that could all be useful in developing and improving as a manager. The ones that directly compliment this course include Developing Teamwork and Introduction to Emotional Intelligence.

Should employees be paid to be trained?

Online training

The UK’s health & Safety Executive has this to say on the subject:

“The Health and Safety at Work etc Act 1974 (HSWA) requires you to provide whatever information, instruction and training is necessary to ensure, so far as is reasonably practicable, the health and safety at work of your employees.

If training is identified as part of a control measure and relates to safety (for example moving and handling, dealing with challenging behaviour, or fire training) attendance must be treated as work time and should take place during working hours.  If it is necessary to arrange training outside an employee’s normal hours, this should be treated as an extension of time at work. Special arrangements may be needed for part-timers or shift workers.

Section 9 of HSWA prohibits employers from charging employees for anything they have to do in respect of carrying out specific requirements of the relevant statutory provisions.  The requirement to provide health and safety training is such a provision and employees should not therefore be required to pay for their own training.”
