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?

lifted colleagues

We were looking for a management training programme to provide to all line managers across the charity.  We liked Claire's approach - engaging and not too formal - and appreciated her experience in charity fundraising and people development, and her flexibility.

The management training workshops and Claire's delivery were fantastic. Her own experiences and the examples she shared really helped people understand the importance of the subject areas.  Doing the training as a colleague cohort has really helped  us to lift management style and approach right across the charity
