Manager's Launch Pad (MLP) – Join one of Henley’s management courses. 

The shift from managing oneself to managing others requires a new value system and this management course will help you bridge the gap. It is often said that managing assumes a higher value than doing self-managed work. People often trip up here. The biggest problem is that new managers keep doing what they were doing before but at a more frantic level. This causes the people who report to them, and who are looking for leadership, to become disillusioned with management. A common pitfall is that line managers often end updoing line work which is counterproductive and thwarts the necessary transition that new managers need to make.

A leader’s job is to help others do their work well. New managers need to learn the value of making others productive so that they can be better at managing and leading. The Henley New Managers programme aims to give managers a solid foundation from which to launch their business management careers and to become more effective in their roles.
