Bringing the drama to L&D
Real life isn’t simple – it’s complicated. So why not embrace it? Our seven immersive Managing People courses are a master class in real-life, scenario-based learning. We bring energy, positivity and expertise to every course. All we ask of you is to raise your expectations of what L&D can deliver.
- Immersive, scenario-based learning – not just long-winded text, slides and videos.
- Automatic measurement built in.
- Courses that enhance anything you’ve already got in place.
Real working life comes with tricky situations, and a demand for strategic thinking. So we park the theory, and tackle reality head-on.
What to expect from the whole Managing People course approach
It starts with a Quick Skills Check to show your managers’ skills now. Then a blend of online learning and remote coaching/facilitated sessions. Next, Mastery Checks show what behaviour change has started to happen. It’s all brought together with a final ‘Where next?’ coaching session, to review and launch their further development. The final evaluation comes from assessing the impact of the coaching, combined with feedback from the courses. Pick what works for you.
Checking every manager’s competency level
What does ‘good’ people management look like? We deal in seven competencies:
- Team working
- Adapting to change
- Planning and organising
- Ability to analyse
- Delivering results
Within these, there are 69 key behaviours. We assess your people’s skills for managing a team in the context of each competency and behaviour, and measure performance against them. It’s complex in nature, but simple in practice.
The power of going granular
The answer is in our learning approach. When people are faced with real-life narratives, they respond authentically. No guesses, no shortcuts, and no zooming through courses simply to ‘get them done’. Instead, we arm people with the practical skills they need to make an immediate difference.
Put a smile on your team’s – and the board’s – faces
Our competency model has resonated with every client we’ve ever worked with. Not just because it digs into the vital details, but because we set up automatic reporting on our findings. So there’s no extra work for you – just a whole lot of reward.
We see this as a launchpad for good managers becoming exceptional managers. It boosts skills from every angle, and lets you focus on the people, not the admin.
Change behaviour and build confidence
Standard online learning courses give your people knowledge, but this alone isn’t enough to change behaviour. That’s why we value skills over just information. Our Managing People courses motivate your people to perform better, from a place of understanding and determination.
Learning is multi-faceted, and worth the investment. So give your managers the vigour they need to keep growing.
Beyond the courses and measurement tools, anyone can step into our hub: a modest but powerful collection of tips, insights and resources to make the best people managers. All in plain language, with lots of practical suggestions.
