Managing People online course:
Episode 4. Induction
An induction sets the tone for a team member’s time with you. Get it right, and they’ll be happy and productive in their role. Get it wrong, and there could be lasting issues with their performance. The last thing you want is for anyone to feel out of their depth – so how can you give your new hire the best possible start?
Set your team up for a successful career with you
A good staff induction offers more than an introduction to the business. You need to make sure your new team member understands your company values, and the ins and outs of their responsibilities. Is the role what they expected? And are they demonstrating the skills you were assured they had during the hiring stage? This is the time to spot any issues, celebrate early successes, and make sure both parties are happy to move ahead.
Episode 4: The story
Team member Gemma’s performance and attendance haven’t been great. As it turns out, she wasn’t given a proper induction when she first joined the business. Charlotte needs to listen to Gemma’s perspective on the situation, and decide which steps to take next. It’s also been revealed that a staff member recently inducted by Charlotte has been helping herself to some stock – something that needs to be tackled fast. But how?
Key takeaways from this episode
- Ability to plan a solid staff induction
- How to listen to and motivate team members
- The best way to monitor and review performance

Skills served up fresh at the Rise and Dine
Welcome to Rise and Dine – a fictional cafe with a whole lot of real-world challenges. In each course, you’ll make decisions for their new manager, Charlotte. She needs to turn the team around and restore the cafe to its former glory.
While our story takes place in a cafe, the situations Charlotte faces will be familiar to any manager, in any sector. We guarantee your managers will relate all-too-well to her plights – and be invested in helping her succeed.
What to expect from the whole 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.
Throughout the course, we measure how your people perform against seven competencies, and 69 behaviours. We swap the usual long-winded text, slides and videos for challenges straight out of your reality.
- Team working
- Adapting to change
- Planning and organising
- Ability to analyse
- Delivering results
Motivating managers to change behaviour
As well as videos, we use animations and downloadable course packs to make sure every lesson we deliver makes an impact with every kind of learner. Your managers will think, solve, and conquer. And complete the course with the ability to face the trickiest of situations.
Completing this course gains a recognised Continual Professional Development (CPD) point.
Taking the accompanying Mastery Check gives valuable feedback, and the all-important measurement data, and earns your manager an additional 0.5 CPD points.
