New peer learning group is planned for new and junior managers

Are you new to a management role – or about to move into one? If so, you could benefit from sharing experiences and developing your skills with like-minded people in our newest peer learning group.

Peer learning has been so effective that Network members requested a similar group for new and junior managers. Interested people are invited to attend a special Taster Session on Thursday 26 March.

What is it?
Emma explains: “The programme starts with a two-day intensive workshop, followed by seven short peer learning sessions over the course of the year.

“These address the real issues, challenges and opportunities encountered by participants and the meetings include guest speakers, round table discussions, book reviews and visits to member organisations.

“Agendas are always set in consultation with group members and sessions are facilitated by a very experienced management coach, Colin Chrebelski, who has himself worked in industry and also had a very successful career in learning and development.”

Topics covered in the new managers’ group last year included

  • Performance management
  • Reward and benefits packages
  • Employer branding
  • How to conduct one to one meetings
  • Company core values and missions
  • Work/life balance
  • Personal development
  • Survival in a time of organisational change.

Who is it for? It’s aimed at emerging managers and those about to start a management roles; who are keen to explore and develop their all-round leadership performance.

We want to to create a high-quality group that will bring together individuals from different organisations and business sectors to work collaboratively and reflect the knowledge, skills and behaviours they need to be effective managers.

Ideally, participants will already be in a role requiring them to manage others, and they should be prepared to commit to the group for every session as far as possible.

Who is the facilitator? Colin Chrebelski – Facilitator/Management Coach, DG International
Colin is passionate about helping people and organisations reach their full potential. He has a successful career with a lifetime’s experience in learning and development. He has an MBA, a Certificate in Education, is a Fellow of the Chartered Management Institute and is a member of the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development.

How much does it cost?
Fees for the new managers’ group are £950 + VAT per person per year.
