Leadership and Management courses

Inspire and motivate with strong leadership
Get the best results through your people

Some people find it easy to step up to management and leadership – whether it’s a first-line supervisor role or a C-level appointment – but most people need training or coaching to maximise their effectiveness.

Leaders need to be able to communicate a vision, articulate a winning strategy and ensure alignment to organisational goals. Managers play a crucial role in solving problems, organising resources and managing performance. Both leaders and managers are central to employee engagement, motivation and retention.

Speak First offers a suit of courses designed to give participants the knowledge and skills required to build high-performing teams that drive business success. We cover everything from the basics of coaching, giving feedback and carrying out appraisals to managing change, inspiring the workforce and inspiring them to excel. Those new to management learn how to step up to their new role and make an effective transition. Mid-level managers acquire valuable tools and techniques they can put into practice immediately. Senior managers have an opportunity to share best practice with their peers and take their skills to the next level.

Our interactive and engaging courses are delivered by experienced, charismatic trainers and coaches, with each learning solution standing on its own as a high-quality and high-impact intervention, but they’re at their very best when delivered as part of a wider programme. We can work with you to build a personalised programme that meets your own specific needs. We can seamlessly blend together virtual classrooms, face-to-face sessions, 1-2-1 and group coaching and more, to give you choice and flexibility.
