Emerging Manufacturing Leaders Program -Module 2: Working with Different People

Type: Programme

Location: Christchurch

Emerging Manufacturing Leaders Program - Soft skills development tailored to the manufacturing sector

In response from requests from members The Manufacturers Network, along with Fox Management Solutions, have tailored the following programme especially for our sector.
This programme is designed for first line managers/team leaders/supervisors and candidates for these roles. It recognises that these people have good technical skills and experience, but that leading people is a different challenge.
The programme consists of 5 modules and attendees who complete the programme will be given a certificate. While we recommend attending the full programme, you can also select individual modules to attend.

Module 2:  Working with Different People

We all understand that people are different and that we get on with some people better than others. A critical skill for effective leaders is being able to interact successfully with a wide range of people so that those differences do not lead to conflict or limit performance.
This module looks at what makes us different and the different behavioural styles. We learn how to identify the styles and the strengths, weaknesses and preferences of each style. Based on this knowledge we then learn what we need to do to adapt to these differences, so we get better results with all our people. We also look at practical ways to deal with conflict when it arises. 

Below is an overview of all the course modules:
