Do you struggle to understand those management terms but were always afraid to ask? It can almost feel like a secret society, but this one hour session will demystify the management speak and make it crystal clear what they mean. You can then attend any business meeting confident in the knowledge that you can hold your own. We will take a really close look at Visions & Mission statements. Company values and cultures come under scrutiny and how they link to behaviour and attitude. We examine the 'Balanced Scorecard' approach to management and finally we will look at "Strategy & Tactics". By the end of this 1 hour session you will be talking like a top executive!
By following the examples of some very successful people who adopted a positive mental attitude, we will see how they achieved great things. By using the same techniques you too can achieve whatever you set your mind to and be the person you want to be. This includes performing at the very highest level you can.
When things go wrong in a business, everyone loses out. Employees are frustrated at having to continually fix problems and correct mistakes, the business loses money and often the customer is affected by a reduction in quality or a late delivery. Some major business issues can start from a small error being made early on in the process, going undetected and not being corrected until it is too late. This is where Right First Time is vital if you want to avoid costly mistakes.
As a manager in a business, we need to accept we cannot do everything ourselves. We need others around us to take on work and responsibilities in order to achieve business objectives. This may sound simple enough, however it is probably one of the least understood management skills and one many managers find difficult in practice. In this session we learn techniques to delegate so we can be more effective.
This follow-on session delves into the successful management of change. Knowledge of cause and effect allows us to plan for change in a positive way and keep ahead of the competition. We will look at how to manage people through the difficult times and a process for organisations to follow which provides a blueprint for successful management of change.

What makes the difference between success, high profits, a well- motivated and engaged workforce, satisfied, loyal customer base and an organization which is struggling to meet its targets, has high levels of conflict, a poorly motivated staff and an ever diminishing return on the effort to succeed? Much research has been carried out on what gives successful companies the competitive edge. Positive psychology used in a structured way has demonstrated, beyond doubt, it gives individuals, teams and organizations across the board the "Positive Advantage". If you want better outcomes there need to be a better quality of thinking. Perspective, motive, emotional intelligence, choice and responsibility are all major elements within our thinking. This session offers a structured approach to "mindful" thinking.

Project management is a methodology that helps teams and organizations define, plan, organize, and ultimately complete projects in an efficient, systematic manner. It is an invaluable process that defines a project, identifies key stakeholders, differentiates the constraint drive (time, budget, or quality), and pinpointing the knowledge, skills, and abilities necessary to complete the project. Organizations use project management to effectively allocate and manage team resources. This presentation will give an overview of the main principles of project management and how to implement them in your organization today.
In this class, we will look at the difference between being reactive and being proactive, as well as the benefits of being more proactive and how that helps us to improve our use of time. Also, we will offer some techniques that help us to fix problems and prevent them from re-occurring. This concludes with the dynamic of continuous improvement and how it can dramatically reduce the time we spend on tasks.
Wherever you may work, whether it is an office, warehouse or offshore, we make prioritisation choices every day. In this chapter, we are going to look at an example scenario which will test your prioritisation skills and how you apply them.
Learning to prioritise your work is a fundamental skill of successful time management. In a busy workplace there will be many competing priorities, and occasionally some difficult decisions will need to be made about what to work on next. Additionally, there may be a number of interruptions which you need to manage in terms of how they affect your priorities.
Following on from the previous class, we will be taking a look at one of the biggest ‘time bandits’ when it comes to ineffective use of our time – meetings. We will consider the cost of meetings, and ways to make them a more effective use of time.
