Management Development Programme

Are you looking to improve your management skills?

 Do you wish you had the tools and techniques to deal with challenging people situations?

 Do you want to know how to drive performance at the same time as engaging your team?


Come and join our Management Development Programme:

Interactive classroom based sessions, one day a month for seven months, in which you will learn the skills and gain the confidence needed to effectively manage yourself and your team.

  • Your management style
  • Managing performance
  • Effective Communication
  • Employee relations
  • Leading teams
  • Personal organisation

The seventh module is a group learning day in which you and fellow delegates will share insights, experiences and successes gained in using the tools learnt throughout the programme. This is an opportunity to demonstrate the measureable impact you feel the programme has had on you as individuals, your team and the business; an opportunity to reflect on your new found management capabilities.

We have created our Management Development Programme to ensure feel supported and engaged during modules. This is done through discussion via a private chat group allowing you to stay connected with your trainer and fellow delegates throughout the programme and beyond.

Read what one of our current participants has to say about the programme

I am fortunate to be a member of the current group undertaking the Dakota Blue Consulting Management Development Programme. Having completed the first 4 modules, I have already learnt about  the strengths and weaknesses of my style and approach to management, and how I can approach situations in a more versatile manner to influence change. The biggest take away to date is the additional confidence the programme has given me.

Jackie Brooker from Dakota Blue Consulting just has the knack of knowing how to deliver a balanced training session.  I was naturally apprehensive about attending, wondering; is this going to be a benefit to me, my company? Who else would be in the room?  My apprehension was quickly dispelled.

The Management Development Programme has an abundance of theory on the specific topic in handouts which form part of the discussion, with slide presentations and video content to expand the subject further.  An extremely important element of the programme for me is the time allowed for the cohort to bring into the room, real world experience and questions. This collaboration has been a valuable tool to help us bond as a group, and as a result  there is a lot of respect and openness which brings an additional dimension to the learning environment. 

I feel it would be wrong not to mention the food! The quality of all the food is amazing, the cake in the afternoon session is to die for!
