Management and Leadership

Management and Leadership

The key to any successful business is good leadership and management. Good management brings efficiency and effectiveness which ultimately breeds success for the company. Good leadership motivates and inspires.

The de Burgh Group offers courses that focus on management, providing reflection and discussion as well as techniques to improve management skills. Our courses are relevant across all businesses.

In addition to our Management and Leadership course, we also run Getting to Partner, a popular course with clients from the legal sector.

As the management topic is very general the de Burgh Group offers flexibility, working with clients to identify areas that need focus. This is of particular benefit for Human Resources needs and we regularly work with HR departments to tailor management course material for relevance.

What are the qualities of a great leader? How does leadership differ from management? What is your role as manager? Our management seminars address the different styles of leadership and management, the importance of flexibility and what distinguishes effective leaders and managers.

Courses tend to be half day (3 hour) and are available for large and small groups. Smaller groups tend to be 6-8 people, and larger sessions will also be split into break out groups. Course material revolves around the following general areas:

Getting To The Next Level

Making the step up to director or partner brings a new set of challenges that require the learning of additional skills. This popular de Burgh Group session is a half-day workshop that focuses on the things that potential partners need to know.

New responsibilities that come with being a leader can include managing budgets, setting targets and managing teams which entails having to deal with resulting HR issues that arise. For some prospective partners this can be a daunting prospect.

De Burgh Group’s Getting To Partner course will allay fears and give practical advice. A popular session we have many clients that come back to us time after time.
