TRAINING METHODS AND PROCESS
The training programme involves an intensive two-day seminar with practical examples and active participant involvement in various practical tasks. It is a great opportunity to share ideas and opinions with colleagues from other companies. Between the first and second day of the seminar, participants will be asked to complete an assignment related to their current work projects.
day 1: A practical seminar during which employees will learn about a manager’s professional competencies, discuss their essence and significance in their current positions, and determine their own competencies for development. By analysing various human resources management situations, participants will get to grips with various management styles, determine their own management style, and learn to choose the most appropriate style for a given situation. The day will be closed out with reflection on the training received so far.
day 2: A practical seminar during which participants will learn about management functions and roles. Through individual and group work, participants will analyse elements of management functions and develop a management model suitable for their situation within their own company.
