An Intensive 5-day Training Course

The Art of Managing People

Craft, Vision, and Communicating with People

Course Introduction

This Oxford Management Centre 'The Art of Managing People' training course challenges the earlier concept that management is no longer simply a responsibility. Today there is an increasing recognition of the importance of the skill of people management. How well or badly a team is managed can affect employee retention, productivity, creativity and even your employees’ health.

This practical, interactive, and participative 'The Art of Managing People' training course will enhance your management skills in order to motivate your team members by projecting a charismatic and inspiring approach to your role. With practical insights into managerial and behavioural styles, you will explore the core competencies needed in effectively managing an organisation, managing people, and managing change.
