This course is specifically for Brighton & Hove City Council managers and staff who are moving into or aspiring to management roles in the near future at the council

This two day course will provide an opportunity for managers to discuss and debate the challenges they face in managing performance at Brighton & Hove City Council.

Part of the course will involve finding out about the HR policies and procedures you need to know and carry out to deliver your role effectively.

A central component of the course will be analysing our performance as managers by identifying our strengths and areas for development in our managerial roles.

Additional information

Staff who have attended this course have said:-

  • The course was on point and very applicable to my new job. Roland was very knowledgeable when talking about management and his own experiences. I found it very useful as a new manager as he understood what it felt like to start this kind of job. He offered practical solutions and joined HR into the training. The skill/ will matrix was very interesting and I think I'll be using that for my team in future. I've also shown it to my line manager who was very interested.
  • The confidence to deal with staff appropriately and endeavour to get the best out of my team using the methods suggested in the training e.g. SMART feedback. Very good on dealing with difficult/challenging team members.
