Essential Management Skills Programme (EMSP)

Essential management skills programme

This programme is designed to give supervisors and managers key learning and new skills, which will enable them to improve and continue to drive performance through people with the overall aim of helping them to engage more effectively with their teams and colleagues. Also to enhance managers & supervisors people skills and performance management capabilities.

EMSP – Essential Management Skills Programme

  In other words, to “get the job done” through willing commitment of individuals. The style of training is very much interactive and practical – allowing rapid and beneficial translation into the workplace. It is important that a good baseline understanding of the skills of management and leadership, coupled to effective team working, make up the first two days. This is important in order to assess a base line level of knowledge and skills from which to move forward. Understanding when to manage and when to lead can be crucial to success and this will be a focus for all who attend. Essential Management Skills Training Programme Overall Outcomes

True leadership is … “getting people to do what you need them to do, in the way it needs to be done, in the given time frame – because they want to do it!”  




“I have just completed the Essential Management & Leadership Skills course organised by Clemorton Consultancy Ltd. This was a 5 module programme spread over a few months. As a new consultant (appointed 18 months ago) I have found it hugely informative and rewarding. The course is extremely relevant for all staff – nursing / medical or administrative who have to manage personnel, and I personally found it very relevant to my practice. As a confident extrovert, it allowed me to understand how my “dynamic” management style can affect different personalities, and how to get the best out of staff whom are very different to me. I have recently put my training into practice with a trainee in difficulty and had to explain to them why I felt his behaviour was unacceptable and what I wanted to change. Rather than having any conflict, due to me adapting my style as trained, I was rewarded with the individual thanking me for pointing out their failings as now he understood why things weren’t going well for him, something which he had never been told in his last two jobs! With regards to the course, the organisation was excellent and the delivery of the format done in a professional, interactive, thought provoking way which allowed every individual to maximise the benefit gained from the course. I was particularly impressed about how the trainer / facilitator managed to balance the group to allow the quieter members to participate as much as the more vocal. Despite everyone being from different backgrounds and seniority, this was never a problem and in fact, lessons were learnt from each others experience as well as from the trainer.”
