Feedback:

This session was excellent and I would highly recommend it along with the sessions I attended previously.  Please continue to provide these sessions as they are an invaluable resource for those developing in management roles and those in management roles dealing with a new issue for the first time.

I found this programme very beneficial and feel more confident as a manager now to deal with issues as they arise.  It was very useful to be able to speak to the group and the HR presenters for advice and guidance. I would really recommend this course.

I really enjoyed the course and have taken away some excellent strategies that I can put to use immediately.

I found it very informative – an eye-opener!  It has certainly made me look at managing change in a whole new light.
