The programme covers performance management, managers role in context, one to one coaching and creativity and innovation. It is designed to build a cohesive management team and enhance the skills of their senior managers. The programme links into both the officers and assistants development programme to show the relationship between the different sets of employees and enhance day to day interaction between managers, officers and assistants. As a result of the programme all employees have the same expectations. A staff counselling scheme is available internally and externally to assist managers with their development.
