Will I mess it up? What if I’m wrong? Will people think I’m an idiot? Making decisions is difficult. And there are many reasons we fail to make good decisions. We might over-think or over-complicate an issue. We may take too long to reach a conclusion and we’re often struck will a terrible fear of making mistakes.This short course will help your learners solve this problem.

In the increasingly complex working environments that many people find themselves in, the resilience of individuals, teams, and organisations, is becoming critical for business success. We all have times when things are difficult. It might be a particular incident or tragedy which delivers a single blow, or it could be a series of smaller events which, over time, grind you down.
There are different definitions of resilience but a common theme among them is the idea of adaptation, recovery and bounce back. It’s often said that resilience is the ability to cope with challenges, problems and set-backs, and to become stronger because of them.
People use a number of different strategies to be, or become more,
resilient. These include rational thinking skills, taking care of their
physical and emotional health, and also making sure there are support systems
in place to help them should they be needed.
This developing resilience e-learning course
sets out to provide your learners with these strategies. Giving them everything
they need to build their resilience and be better placed to face challenges
that they might face in work and at home.

But the consequences of poor or absent feedback can be very serious.This short course helps solve this problem, giving learners the practical tools to provide constructive feedback that causes positive change. They’ll gain the self-awareness to grow as an individual and to help others improve their performance. Feedback is the way we improve as individuals, as teams and as companies. So, it’s important that we take the time to master these skills.

Yet as managers, supervisors and team leaders, we often get so caught up in day-to-day operations that coaching slips down the to-do list.This short course will help you solve this problem. You’ll learn a simple tool to help you better coach members of your team. Whether it’s a formal 1-2-1 or a more informal discussion, you’ll be equipped with a practical technique to help you achieve the best possible outcomes.
Leading Virtual Teams
Why do we need to work in the same building? That’s the question many companies now ask. The use of virtual workers is exploding in popularity. And the potential benefits are clear. Workers gain a better work/life balance, while having the freedom to do great work. And employers reduce their overheads, while creating a happier, more productive workforce.
Which all sounds great. But it’s easy to get it wrong. Managing a virtual team comes with a unique set of challenges. The biggest of which is not dealing with the physical distance between your team, but to reduce the psychological distance between everyone. This course is perfect for anyone who has to manage a team that works in different locations or over different shift patterns.
Management Skills programme
People don’t work hard for a weak manager. Teams fail under the leadership of weak managers. And weak managers themselves have unremarkable and unsuccessful careers.
But great managers are the opposite. People love to work for a great manager. Great managers help lift their teams to new levels of performance. And those managers are highly valued in companies, ensuring they’re the ones that get the promotions and the lucrative salaries.
What’s the difference between the weak manager and the great one? It’s simple: great managers are not born that way; they have to work at it – they’ve studied how to become great. In this e-learning course your learners will gain the fundamental ideas, techniques and mindset they need to become a better manager.
Being able to manage your time effectively is often what sets the best business people apart from the rest. By implementing good working practices and working to an improved time management plan, people have more time for the tasks that really get results. Not only will learners be able to allocate more time to important work, they’ll also free up personal time and thus reduce stress.
In this e-learning course, learners will work with some practical approaches to improve your time management. Identifying where the pressures are now and what can be done to help structure an approach that is efficient and effective. They’ll be given all the tools and techniques required to turn their time management goals into reality.
What each person considers important and how they want to spend their time is personal. For this reason, a one-size-fits-all approach to time management is less effective. With this in mind, an essential element of this course is the workbook, which focuses on helping the learner reflect on their own circumstances. It helps them put together strategies to address the issues they’ve identified and create action plans for success.
Mentoring, in a business sense, is a relationship between two people with the goal of professional and personal development. The mentor is usually an experienced individual who shares knowledge, experience, and advice with a less experienced person – the mentee.
There are many similarities between coaching and mentoring, but perhaps one of the main differences is that a mentor is often an expert, or at least highly experienced, in the area they are mentoring in, whereas a coach needn’t be.
Some mentors focus on helping their mentees develop their career path by giving advice on things like how to progress ‘up the ladder’. Others see their role as supporting the mentee as a person and focusing on how they can help them develop as individuals. There’s a great deal of variety in mentoring situations and the approaches mentors use. Some can be quite challenging and require the mentor to adapt to the situation and be flexible.
This mentoring e-learning course sets out to provide your learners with a wide understanding of the role of mentoring as well as a key set of tools that they can transfer to the workplace.Although this e-learning course is predominantly aimed at the mentor, it is equally useful for mentee and will give both an understanding of what is expected of them. The e-learning will ensure the learners have everything they need to ensure they establish effective mentoring relationships.
Performance management is simply about managers and employees working together to plan, monitor and review specific work objectives in order to maximise that employee’s contribution to the company.Often mistreated as a box ticking exercise, performance management is a powerful tool to improve a company’s bottom line. And being able to build happier and more productive teams will improve your learners’ overall management skills. In this course the participants will learn how to effectively manage other people’s performance to increase successful outcomes for the company they work in.
