On the 11th May ProConnect Manchester is hosting two workshops for leaders of Creative Businesses and first time managers in the creative industries. These sessions are designed to equip managers and leaders to develop their team and drive better performance across the company.
ProConnect is supported by ERDF (European Regional Development Fund), and held in partnership with Greater Manchester Business Growth Hub with event partners Media City UK.
Managing people for the first time
Becoming a manager is a crucial stepping stone in most careers but, for creatives, can be one of the most challenging. Making things and managing people can require two very different skillsets. This practical seminar will give participants insights into how to manage effectively, or more effectively if you're already doing it.
Taught by former BBC producer Sue Ahern, it will cover how to hire the right people and create a complementary team, getting off on the right foot - and the importance of inductions and orientations, agreeing and monitoring objectives, giving and receiving feedback, dealing with underperformance, achieving emotional control and how to develop and retain staff. As a partner at Creative People, Sue now specialises in coaching and helping managers and individuals in creative businesses realise their full potential, and works with many of the UK's leading indies.
