This intensive session is specifically designed to meet the needs of new managers in the College with responsibility for other staff.
You must attend this course before attending Introduction to Managing Groups and Teams (Core 1) and Leading Successful Teams (Core 2).


To give line managers relevant knowledge, skills and confidence to effectively lead and manage others, understand their own impact on others and be able to adapt leadership and management style.

Who should attend

The course is aimed at those who have been recruited or promoted to a first position of management (i.e. having responsibility for the work and PRDP of another staff). The course will also be relevant to more experienced managers who are new to the College and/or those wishing to refresh their knowledge.


This workshop is based on a blended learning approach. Blended learning combines online educational materials with traditional instructor-led, virtual classroom methods. Through this teaching method we will provide you with a rich and reflective learning experience that will enhance your development.

This course will follow a structure consisting of:

  • pre-session – to introduce you to some theories and models used in leadership and management, and applying them in your role
  • virtual session (replacing face to face) – focused on further developing skills and practice
  • consolidation – to internalise your knowledge and skills and inspire you to take action. 

Psychometrics used in this workshop:

  • The Myers Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) provides a framework and language for ourselves and others and working effectively with differences.  MBTI underpins much of the theory on this programme and completion of the online MBTI questionnaire is required prior to commencing the programme.

The course has been designed to match specific elements of the Management and Leadership National Occupational Standards.


By the end of the course, delegates will be able to:

  • Understand the Imperial Expectations and how they relate to their role as leader/manager.
  • Increase self-awareness, reflect on personal preferences and how this impacts management style. 
  • Understand different leadership styles.
  • Know what constitutes excellent communication skills
  • Understand all the elements of People and Performance Management Cycle and how to apply it.
  • Know how to develop and motivate individuals.
