Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

What is management training? chevron

Management training is a learning and development activity focussed on developing the skills, knowledge and understanding of Managers so that they can better fulfil their roles.


Management training programmes are not to be confused with Leadership programmes, which focus on the skills needed to be a leader. It is important to understand though that management development will most often include leadership since great managers will also have leadership skills.


Many training programmes forget the importance of attitude in becoming a great manager. A good management training programme will include a good helping of self-reflection and assessment, allowing managers to consider their strengths and areas for development.

People undertaking Management training can be at different levels; they may be aspiring managers, experienced managers and anything in between. They may also be line managers, responsible for a person or team of people, or a functional manager, responsible for a particular area of work.


Management training does not have to be delivered in a classroom, there are many ways to develop a manager including:


  • Virtual and classroom courses
  • Coaching
  • Mentoring
  • Action Learning Sets
  • E-learning
  • Business Simulations
