Lunch and Learn!

Are there new managers or team leaders in your organisation who you feel show potential and who, with a little extra help and guidance, could bring more to the business?

Do you want to develop these managers, but can't spare the time away from work for training? Well .... We have the solution!

We have recently completed the second year of our 2017/18 Progress Club and the feedback below shows how much our participants gained from the programme. 100% of those who completed the programme found it useful and have already used what they have learned within their roles. Specific feedback includes:

  • "I found time management to be the most useful webinar as I use the grid to manage my tasks at times of high workload."
  • "Motivating others has helped me to re-evaluate and think/use other ways to deal with people."
  • "I was concerned that some of the webinars would not relate to my job role, but all could be related in every aspect."
  • "Been lovely to be part of this journey and to have the [face to face] meeting at the end. Great end to the year".

Our next CHaRM Progress Club will begin in the spring of 2019; dates yet to be confirmed. The Progress Club is a series of bite-sized learning sessions of 90 minutes each. Delivered via Webinar, over the lunch time period, there are 10 interactive sessions during the course of the year. The final session is a networking meeting, with guest speaker. Feedback from earlier participants includes:

"I would like to thank everyone at CHaRM for their efforts. Have enjoyed the programme."

"The Progress Club has really helped develop my confidence in my job role and my career. This has been apparent in my work, to my colleagues and to my manager also."

"I found the Handling Conflict webinar most useful because I can relate it to my role currently and so can use the skills learnt directly."

"I was able to take a lot from the prioritising workload webinar and apply it to my current role."

"Motivating Others gave an excellent insight and enlightened me on the fact that people are motivated by different things."

There are several benefits of being a member of the CHaRM Progress Club:

  • Short, punchy and interactive Webinars
  • Up to date management techniques that really work
  • Access to management expertise and advice
  • Opportunity to network with other managers
  • Excellent value for money (at only £395.00 plus VAT for the whole year's membership!)
  • Become part of an online management learning community and learn from others.

Each Webinar takes place on the last Friday of each month from 11.30 a.m. to 1.00 p.m. There is one session every month except for August and December. All you need is a headset and microphone to learn in the comfort of your own office!

Topics include:

  • Managing Meetings
  • Prioritising Workload
  • Effective Delegation
  • Influencing and Persuading
  • Setting Clear Objectives
  • Giving Effective Feedback
  • Motivating Others
  • Fundamentals of Presentations
  • Celebrating Success.

This is an extremely cost effective way of providing training for people who you cannot really allow to take time away from work for training. Participants also benefit from interaction with other participants on the Webinar and get some really good learning from the experience.
