The role of a middle manager has changed. It’s gone way beyond technical expertise and operational oversight. Today, it’s about balancing management skills with decisive leadership to read and respond to the many people and performance-based challenges they face daily. In short, middle managers are more pivotal to the success of an organisation than ever before and their role has become infinitely more complex.

Our advanced management skills programme has been designed to help your managers master emotional intelligence (EQ) – enabling them to adapt their management style so that their teams can succeed.

Bridging the gap between day-to-day management and strategic leadership, this programme shows your managers how to lead their teams with purpose and empathy, bringing out the best in those around them.

Leading with emotional intelligence will help them build stronger relationships, manage their teams’ performance more effectively and achieve more together now and into the future. EQ is a non-negotiable core skill for managers, and our programme will help them master it with the same dedication as any other professional competence.
