Open Enrollment Programmes for Your Professional Development

Developing Managerial Effectiveness

To be successful organizations need to have both effective leaders and effective managers. Whereas leaders need to be focused on moving the organization forward with inspiring visions and the ability to influence people to believe in and work towards achieving those visions, managers are required to keep the organization running efficiently. To do this, they have to be effective at analyzing information and making the best decision in light of what they know. 

Managers must therefore have the capacity to think of their organization in broad terms and make the best decisions to achieve agreed goals and objectives. They need to be willing to take responsibility, make decisions and stand accountable for the outcome whether good or bad. In short, they need to be able to get things done, on time and under budget. Equally important they need to be consistent and to be known for being results focused. 

This two day programme is therefore designed to help new managers build their capacity in functioning successfully in their new role. In addition, it will provide a guide for individuals who are preparing themselves to enter that role in the near future. Participants will work in teams and on their own. As such they will be able to receive feedback and guidance both on an individual basis and as part of a team. 

The programme will therefore be highly interactive and participants will be required to actively engage in all practical application sessions.



By completion of this programme participants will be able to:

  • Describe the functions of management and the comparison with Leadership
  • Demonstrate greater effectiveness in the managerial role.
  • Practice holistic and strategic thinking in the daily work environment.
  • Effectively achieve objectives through others.
  • Improve the efficiency in managing the organization’s



This is an interactive programme. It uses the principles of reflective action and adult learning to ensure that participants are able to achieve the levels of growth desired. Participants will be required to actively participate in case analyses, discussions and presentations and to use their skills and knowledge to make decisions and solve problems. 

As part of this methodology, case studies, practical application sessions, exercises and other experiential activities will be used throughout the programme.



The programme will cover the following topics:

  • A Strategic Overview of the Manager’s Role
  • The Management – Leadership Connection
  • Keys to Demonstrating Managerial Effectiveness
  • Managing Your Time and Your Energy: The Key to Getting It Done
