Course overview

Our two-hour interactive workshops are for managers of any grade wishing to focus on developing specific skills in their management toolkit.

Are you a helping or hindering to your team to prioritise? 

This short workshop looks at the manager’s role in supporting their team with prioritisation. It includes giving clear direction and guidance, avoiding and/or managing clashing priorities, managing ‘random’ factors, and considering where prioritising sits within the 4 skills of workload management. 

What to do before you attend: To maximise time in the workshop, there will be some pre-work to complete prior to attending which we will email to you approximately a week before the course.
