Managing Yourself and Others

Engineering context

We give leadership and responsibility a great deal of attention these days - and rightly so. But so much of that attention is placed on the management of others. When a person understands how their own attitude and demeanour affects colleagues, it makes a great deal of difference not just to a team but to an organisation.

Understanding and managing our own behaviour is therefore a central element of being a good and well-respected team leader. It can lead - directly or indirectly - to improved productivity, reduced staff turnover, lower absenteeism, increased individual wellbeing and improved team cohesion.

This one-day workshop aims to develop your skills in managing your own and others’ behaviour, with an emphasis on day-to-day interactions with colleagues.

Upon completion you’ll be able to identify principles of emotional intelligence, have an improved level of self-awareness, understand what drives you and others, deal more effectively with difficult situations, and have developed a range of strategies for dealing with conflict.
