The Maximum Performance Management Development Programme

A practical approach to managing yourself and those around you, this unique ‘bite-sized’, ILM-recognised programme will help managers step up and make a difference.

Aimed primarily at new and aspiring managers (and also a very good refresher for managers who have not been through a structured development programme before), the programme takes a ‘bite-sized’, modular approach which gives participants plenty of tools and strategies for dealing with everyday challenges in the workplace as well as the opportunity to learn from others’ experiences, reflect on their own, and benefit from the inspirational advice and guidance of your choice of expert trainer.


A 10-day programme covering 17 different skills modules.

Can be run face-to-face or virtually.

Available in several different languages.

Can be tailored or we can design a bespoke programme just for you.
