The Staff Training and Development Unit are offering two courses aimed at Senior Managers, designed to support you in your management role: Senior Managers 360 Feedback Programme and Coaching Skills for Senior Managers.

Senior Managers: 360 Feedback Programme

This is an opportunity for Senior Managers to obtain 360 feedback in order to identify any personal development needs. This includes identifying and building on their strengths and looking at their potential development areas.

The programme consists of an initial briefing session to enable participants to select the most appropriate colleagues to provide feedback. They will also have the opportunity to discuss any concerns they may have about the process.

The questionnaires are collated by an external company and a follow up 1:1 meeting will be scheduled with a Staff Development Advisor from the STDU who will work through the report with them.  Coaching support will be offered in order to help identify the next steps in their personal development.

Executive Coaching support may be provided if required.
