Managing Your Team is the second of the three SWITCH courses within our PATH Programme, Managing for Success. Managing for Success has been endorsed by the Chartered Management Institute (UK), an organisation that for over 60 years has been dedicated to developing and supporting world class leaders and managers throughout their careers. It is the only chartered professional body dedicated to promoting the highest standards in management and leadership excellence.

Leading for Success and Managing for Success are the two programmes we have developed in conjunction with CMI which enable you to be awarded the CMI Level 5 Certificate in Management and Leadership. If you already have 5 years management experience, obtaining this Certificate will enable you to apply for globally-recognised designation of Chartered Manager. Yay!

Course overview

Being a manager means achieving objectives, goals and targets THROUGH and WITH people and we start with helping you how to achieve this. We look at what it means to be an effective manager and how to boost both individual and team productivity – and as a result contribute more meaningfully towards your organisation’s success.

We also provide an overview of the process involved in recruiting, selecting and managing your team. And illustrate how by considering team members to be key stakeholders in your success you can ensure a smooth progression in your career.
