Fundamentals transparent.png

a 6-module programme for those moving from contributor to manager roles or who've already made that move but not had any formal support or training

Moving into people-management can be hard!

Going from being awesome at your own particular specialism area, to line-managing one or more other people who are also awesome in that same specialism area, isn't always as easy as you might expect it to be
There are lots of new things to think about and balance


How do you balance your time between delivery of your own operational workload AND providing the support needed by those you people-manage?

How do you learn to celebrate their successes as your successes?

• How do you delegate and give opportunities?

How do you manage difference of approach and opinion?

How do you give them the support they need to learn and grow, especially if this might not be in exactly the same way as you do things?​

How do you learn to love these new parts of your role?

Fundamentals of Management gives you and your peer managers the practical and tactical skills and tools you need ease the transition from Contributor to Manager

I loved the Fundamentals of Management programme and Claire has been an absolute pleasure to work with.


The knowledge, expertise and tips shared within the programme have helped me immensely in my journey as a line manager improving both relationships, results and my self-confidence
