Course Overview

The Managing People Skills Programme is designed to assist managers in developing their management and interpersonal skills and to build on many of the core skills introduced in our earlier Managing People Programme. Participants will gain a greater understanding of their communication and management style and its impact on those they manage.

Learning Outcomes

On completion of this programme, participants will be able to:

  • Gain an insight into their own behavioural style and approach to others by carrying out a detailed personality profile
  • Develop the key communications skills and the confidence to use them
  • Improve personal presentation skills through practice and feedback
  • Develop and improve key management skills, motivation, managing meetings, team building and time management
  • Develop a greater understanding of their own preferred interactive style and recognise the dynamics of interpersonal relationships.


Ibec has designed this programme as a follow up to the Managing People programme. This programme consists of four modules to enable participants to practice the cores skills of management. All presenters on the programme are practitioners who deal with a variety of real life situations on a daily basis. Extensive use is made of practical exercises, case studies and role- plays to secure a high level of discussion and self-learning. You will be encouraged to express your views and experiences. A large proportion of the time is spent discussing issues to ensure a thorough understanding of the key points and their application. Actual case histories are used to draw up the case studies and role-plays.

Who should attend

Front-line managers, supervisors and managers who want to develop their people management skills further.

Colm Molloy, Director of HR, Storm Technology: "We engaged with Ibec to design a programme for our Line Managers that not only gave them the skills to perform their people management skills more effectively but also to provide them with an accredited programme. The programme hit the mark fully on both levels as it gave the tools to help manage themselves and their teams better but also gave them the accreditation for their efforts."
