Management Essentials Program

The absolute baseline management program that every manager and leader needs.

Develop your practical leadership skills

Every single day, people are promoted into management roles. Often, they get there because of tenure or individual contributor performance. It’s likely that they have never been provided with guidance or support on how to actually manage and lead. We call this the “accidental manager”. This program provides the building blocks to solve that problem. It’s short, sharp and builds confidence straight away.

  • 2 full days of face-to-face or virtual learning
  • 2 diagnostic reports: DiSC Behaviour Profiling and the IML 360 Feedback Survey

Take me on the journey

Are you interested to see what the journey will look like? Here is the typical Management Essentials Program experience.

Prework

A critical component of your entire journey. This stage requires you to undertake online diagnostic surveys. These are more than a basic personality quiz; they are powerful tools that will set you up for success.

You'll also receive access to our online learning portal where you can read and engage with articles and video presentations. These online sessions form an introduction and deeper dive to reinforce your face-to-face learning.

Facilitated learning

Module 1 – Understanding yourself

To be a great leader you must start with knowing how to lead yourself. You’ll learn why the power of managing your own time and priorities has huge impact as well as how to make decisions and problem solve. Understand how you can look after your own wellbeing and build resilience.

Module 2 – Leading people

The most difficult shift from specialist to leader is the management of people. We've dived into managing ourselves and now we are ready to turn to how we lead others. In this module, we cover important topics like setting expectations, managing performance, conflict resolution and effective communication.

Module 3 – High impact teams

In this module we move from managing individuals into how to best manage a team as a cohesive unit. We'll provide you with tools and techniques that will help you build teams, nurture different personalities and motivate your team. You will also learn how to step into the role of a coach.

Module 4 – Maintaining momentum

With all of these new tools in your toolkit, you'll want to keep momentum. For our final module, we will teach you how to delegate effectively so that you can develop your team. We will also walk you through how to create and maintain a positive work environment.

Ongoing support

12 months of Membership with the Institute gives you access to our award-winning Mentoring Program and a network of thousands of managers and leaders from every industry across Australia and New Zealand. Receive thought leadership, access to Development Days, networking opportunities and discounted short courses.
