Who should attend
This programme is for managers early in their career (12 months to 2 years) who would like to develop their competencies around a key set of essential skills.
Ideally participants will have completed some form of foundational management development training before coming on this programme, such as IMI’s Front Line Management Foundation Skills programme. The Essential Skills of Management programme builds upon such foundations and provides learners with an engaging and active learning experience as they build their managerial skills.
