This workshop gives you in-depth insights into your work preferences, strengths and areas for development as a manager. It will also help you to better understand, communicate with and manage your team.

You will receive a personalised Team Management Profile (TMP) highlighting how you prefer to relate to others, how you use information and make decisions and how you organise yourself and others. You will reflect on these preferences and take part in a series of case studies, discussions and experiential activities designed to maximise your strengths as a manager.
