Open Courses - Big Company Training at Small Company Prices

Owners of small businesses can often feel stuck in a Catch 22: They want to step back from the day-to-day management so they can work ON ther business rather than IN their business so they can grow it. But to do that, they need a safe pair of hands keeping things going whilst they're focusing on the future. Most staff are good in their jobs, but are out of their depth when left alone. They know the right thing is to develop their staff (so they can step away from the day-to-day and develop their business) but staff development is limited to technical skills OR it is way too expensive and aimed at big business.

Super Supervisors Programme

Luckily, there is way to get big company training for small company prices AND in bite-size chunks, to keep costs and disruption to a minimum. 

Our Super Supervisor Programme is just 12 hours long, and is covered in 3 half-day sessions and covers the ESSENTIAL skills supervisors need to step up from being a team player to a team leader, including:

  • How being a supervisor is more than just holding the keys and till codes
  • Planning ahead to make the best use of your OWN time (learn to manage, not DO)
  • Communicating clearly so people know what's expected of them (and therefore more likely to do it)
  • Giving feedback to team members so minor issues don't become big problems
  • Delegating work fairly to allocate work fairly
  • Motivating people to encourage great performance every day


The programme will start in January 2019 and will be run by an experienced management development expert, Raj Mehta, who wants to help small businesses GROW.

Location and dates are still to be confirmed, BUT the first programme will take place in the North West (South Manchester). Prices are expected to be no more than £300 per person for the WHOLE programme.

Once you can leave the day-to-day business of your business in a safe pair of hands, just think about what you can do!
