As a professional, achieving results is very important. It's often necessary to call on employees to help you out, but at the same time those employees can also create certain challenges for you. How do you make a close team out of a group of people? How do you motivate and guide them to perform even better?

'People management training' familiarises you with the complexity of working relationships. You will learn about the ingredients that create successful leadership, an optimal working climate and ‘winning teams’. Models based on practical cases and numerous practical tips mean that you will be able to see immediate results in your own approach.

Objectifs

Theory? Yes. But mostly practical tools and tips.

How can I tackle the situation better? Why do I react like that? All new managers who strive to do things well often question themselves. This training programme teaches you all the tools that will enable you to analyse your style of leadership, communication or conflict resolution and help you to distinguish the positive aspects of leadership from the pitfalls. Tips for self improvement are included along the way and you are continuously given the chance to put the theory into practice with the aid of familiar examples and shared experience.

I enjoyed this training a lot. It gave me a solid theoretical framework in the field of leadership and communication. I also have more orientation where to look for more information on the content. It inspired me to apply the knowledge I got during our sessions in my professional and personal life, with positive outcomes. The group was very motivated and added a lot of positive energy to the whole training. The exercises helped me understand people's (and my own!) behaviour better! Highly recommended.
