Effective Management Training

We provide businesses with practical training for managers, supervisors, and team leaders. Our management, HR, and soft skills courses are designed and delivered by our team of highly qualified and experienced HR and management training consultants. Since we also run an HR Consultancy, we actually do the things we talk about in our training on a day-to-day basis. As a result, we can adopt a down-to-earth and business focused approach, bringing theory to life with numerous interesting real-world examples. Which means that rather than boring you to sleep with a load of dull theory, we'll show you the best ways to effectively deal with the types of tricky management issues that you're actually likely to face in practice. Our training fully involve participants through interactive exercises, case studies, and Q&A sessions. No ‘death by PowerPoint’ here.

We supply the full lifecycle of training services, ranging from initial training needs analysis through to post training evaluations and followup support. We don't view our training as simply an end in itself, but rather as an integrated part of achieving your long-term organisational goals.

Highly Rated Management Training

Not only is our management training an engaging and effective experience for those who attend, but it also offers an excellent return on investment for your business. But we would say that, wouldn't we? So, don't just take our word for it. Our testimonials speak for themselves.

The MHFA Two Day course is superb

The MHFA Two Day course is superb. Loates trainer Amanda delivered the course in a relaxed and enjoyable manner, engaging everybody and making difficult subjects very easy to discuss and learn about. The practical exercises were actually fun but with a serious point, the Hearing Voices one really brought home to me how some people suffer. The course covers depression and anxiety, suicide, psychosis and gives you a framework to use to help people. The course book is huge, well produced and contains more detailed information than you need for the course, you take it away and dip in it at your leisure. Loates training rooms allowed for small group work and large discussions with large screen and good sound.

This course opened my eyes to what people go through, and that many people are affected. Everyone was open which added to the learning atmosphere. I recommend this course to everyone, all levels and all roles. The more we talk, the stronger we all are.

Comprehensive and engaging

We recently had the privilege of attending one of their training workshops on the subject preparing for GDPR. The workshop was incredibly well planned and delivered in a comprehensive and engaging manner, the workshop included the supply of valuable assets and documents for attendees to take away and use within their business. I have come away from this workshop feeling far more knowledgeable and prepared for the new GDPR legislation.

Fantastic interactive/inclusive teaching style

Deb have now used Loates Management Training to deliver 3 management coaching sessions, each of which has been very well received. Sarah has a fantastic interactive/inclusive teaching style which really gets the best out of the group and helps to underpin the core learning. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Loates Management Training to others, they are professional, and deliver effective, fun training sessions – a breath of fresh air.

Informative and interesting course

Sarah provided training to a group of line managers in our business with the aim of giving them more confidence in dealing with everyday situations which they come up against. Sarah delivered the training in an informative and interesting way and engaged the managers which made the day go by in a flash. Sarah was also very flexible with timings in order to accommodate the different shifts. I would recommend Loates Management Training to any business.

A great training session

I just wanted to say thank you to Sarah and Annie for a great training session yesterday for Timms Solicitors partners, associates and the management team. We thoroughly enjoyed the session and the energy in the room was brilliant. I have learnt a great deal about my team and they have learnt about themselves and how to manage their behaviour in the office and gain respect from the staff. I must say I was very proud of the way they all engaged and the contributions they made. Thank you so much for bringing out the best in us.

The training was brilliant

The training was brilliant – took away a lot of information. Tell Sarah she scored 5 star all areas – polite, professional, knowledgeable and I wouldn’t change a thing

Annie is a really bubbly character

The webinar was led by Annie from Loates. Annie is a really bubbly character and engaged with the participants in a relaxed and friendly manner.

I found the content of the webinar really helpful in making suggestions to tweak our performance review process. As a business we are in the early implementation stages of carrying out performance reviews so it was a very timely session. Employee engagement is one of the key issues to the business succeeding. The webinar gave us an opportunity to do some little breakout exercises which gave us an opportunity to reflect on how we could help to develop our colleagues. With this being more of a workshop session we also have the opportunity to interact with others on the session. It was interesting to learn of the challenges others had and how they were trying to resolve them.
Annie is clearly a bookworm and made a number of suggestions regards to reading material to consider. My Audible account is now down to zero credit and Amazon have delivered some bedtime reading.

Thanks Annie & Loates for running this session; I found it really helpful.

Fantastic course

I found the course very interactive and there was a real open forum for discussion with clear ‘learning points’ throughout. The team felt energised from the session which enables us to come us with some realistic action points from the sessions. Fantastic course, what I found most impressive what how it felt like the session was being run by someone who really understood the organisation.

Management Training Courses

In the day-to-day work of our sister brand Loates HR Consultancy, we see over and over again numerous real-world examples of workforce issues which would have been so much cheaper and less stressful to resolve, if only managers had been equipped with the appropriate skills and confidence to recognise and effectively deal with them at an early stage. We appreciate that management training is both a time and money cost for businesses though, which is why we've developed a wide range of convenient and cost-effective 'bite-sized' online training webinars. So, what are you waiting for?
