& Management

"This course is a powerful tool in the understanding of self and the management and leadership of people." Balfour Beatty Projects (Taking the Lead)

In the current climate, it is essential to get even better results from people within the constraints of limited time and resources. A planned development framework is the best way to provide a strong foundation of management and leadership skills, address skills gaps, manage your talented people and ensure continuation of leadership and management excellence throughout the organisation.

Management and leadership are different, but complementary, skill sets. These skills are often not explained to people, and they are expected to pick them up alongside technical and task-based knowledge as they progress through their careers.

In reality, many managers and leaders find they have skills gaps, which have an impact on their ability to perform to their best in their roles and to get the best out of the people around them. We offer programmes from newly promoted team leaders who need to make the step up to management, through to senior executives.

"You can tell [those] on the course compared with those who are not, from the level of control, their interaction and their overall understanding."

Leading across boundaries

As more companies expand into the global market and increasingly organisational structures become flatter, your leaders need to be confident and effective working within a matrix and complex environments. 'Traditional' skills are no longer sufficient to guarantee personal and corporate success, because people at all levels face even greater challenges in ever more demanding roles. Leaders and managers need to work with awareness and intelligence in key capability areas that directly impact their effectiveness and therefore your organisation's performance. Capability areas such as political intelligence, stakeholder alignment, ambiguity management, leadership accountability, interpreneurial creativity, conflict handling and relationship intelligence are critical. Keystone have devised a suite of development solutions to address each of the areas mentioned and we also design leadership programmes specifically related to your organisational focus.

Whether you work in a traditional environment or within a matrix or complex organisation, developing your managers and leaders will support your success and we can show you how to do this more effectively.
