Line Management Course FAQs

Line managers are the first layer of management in an organisation.

Line managers manage small groups of front line workers.

They are responsible for overseeing these workers and act as their first point of contact for any issues.

Line managers communicate information between more senior managers in the organisation, HR and their team.

Line management includes:

  • Setting goals.
  • Providing feedback and coaching.
  • Setting and maintaining quality standards.
  • Providing reports on their team’s progress to senior management.
  • Coordinating their team’s activity with other line managers.

 

Good line managers understand that they will be successful when the people on their team are successful. 

They ensure that everyone in their team understands what is required of them, understands how to do it and is motivated.

Line management is a varied role. To do it well you need to:

  • Stop doing front line work. Doing it is not a line manager’s role.
  • Communicate clearly. It requires a lot of transmitting information between people.
  • Trust your team. Nobody likes working for a micromanager.
  • Solve problems. Good line managers fix problems for their team so that their team can be more efficient.

We keep our classes small. We limit them to four people per workshop. 

The fastest way to develop new skills is with plenty of individual attention from a trainer.

Keeping our classes small is the only way we can guarantee that you get the attention you need.

Yes. We offer our line management course as classroom training and online training.

The courses are identical, except for how they are delivered.

The online course includes all of the content that we use in our classroom line manager course and your trainer will be present throughout the course.

Yes. Our line management course teaches fundamental management skills that are very widely applicable. 

The management skills we teach are tried and tested and do not change.

This is because what drives and motivates human beings doesn’t change.

However, exactly how these tools should be used will vary according to the situation.

For example, reviewing your priorities is a key part of time management. However, the frequency with which you need to review your priorities will vary depending on how fast your role changes.

The reason for producing a Personal Action Plan during the training day is that it is a change to think through how you will implement what you have been taught in your specific situation.
