What is the HR Skills for Line Managers Course?

On the HR Skills for Line Managers training course you will develop decisive people management skills to get the best out of your teams whilst avoiding costly HR issues.

It has always been too easy for line-managers to throw their HR issues over the fence to Human Resources. Managers often haven’t been equipped with the skills, knowledge and confidence to own their own team challenges.

We have worked with hundreds of managers who want to take ownership of their team’s development, and that includes managing the tougher sides of people management. This is not about taking risks but owning the problems and liaising with HR to ensure the ideal outcome is always achieved, quickly and effectively.

This two-day programme is a highly practical and action-oriented development opportunity for anyone who is expected to develop others, which will leave participants feeling more confident and excited to apply their ability to develop others more effectively.

Who is this Course For?

This course has been purpose-designed for Team Leaders, Supervisors and Managers who have to perform HR duties as part of their role but have not received any training in the area.
