When you strip it back, the secret to excellent leadership lies in cultivating high-performing teams around a common purpose and vision and managing yourself so you can manage others better.
Our Manager Excellence program is ideal for rising managers and high-potentials who need practical and comprehensive support to drive lasting change and growth within their teams. Whether you have managers that are new to their role, require upskilling to perform at their best, or would simply benefit from a refresher, this program is an immersion into the practice of management within a coaching framework. Unlike other training and development programs, Manager Excellence can be customised to your business needs - the training can be purchased as an entire program or you can select the modules you believe will add the greatest value to your senior team's development.
“Cat's team-building session engaged us with so much energy and positivity that we're now ready for the next level of agile work and kickstarting our new business goals.
33 Talent's training programme was not only tailored to our needs but gave us the opportunity to discover ourselves and our peers at a deeper level. The programme did not end in the workshop - we were each given reading material specific to our development and to discover our strengths even further."
