Training & Development

Colin has developed a huge portfolio of Management and Supervisory development programme content. This allows for programmes to be heavily tailored towards client needs. The modules

His work in this area falls into a number of different categories:

Work Attitudes and Ethics

This programme has been designed to assist new starters, especially U.A.E. nationals make the transition from full time education to full time employment. It examines the relationship between knowledge, skills and attitude and looks at the business and work ethics that are required to achieve success.


The self-management programmes that Colin delivers focus on a participant’s ability to manage his or her own activities and performance within pre-specified timeframes. The programmes look at individual work styles, procrastination, time challenges, as well as understanding and establishing their own roles and goals with the organisation, and then working towards achieving them. He believes that if an individual is going to become a successful manager of people they must first be able to manage themselves.

Team Leadership and Communication

The ability to optimise employee performance is fundamental to the success of any business leader. During this programme, participants learn the importance of communication as well as of assertive behaviour. They discover what motivates them as employees, what their own natural leadership behaviour is and the impact that this behaviour is likely to have on the motivation and teamwork displayed by their subordinates.

Managing Relationships

The importance of interpersonal relationships and the behaviours that can be adopted to improve them. The impact of good and bad relationships on organisational performance is discussed and ideas generated on how best an environment of internal cooperation and support can be established.

Individual Man Management

Now that a manager is able to manage him or her self, and to lead and build a team of people, the individual man management skills become the focus of the development programme. Selecting, interviewing and recruiting team members and then developing them as rapidly as possible are key areas for this programme, as are appraising performance and then counselling individual team members.

Problem Solving and Managing change

How can managers adopt a proactive approach to finding solution for the challenges that they are facing in relation to team and organisational objectives. Various models are discussed and used as a basis for the development of strategies and actions to overcome employee resistance to change.

The above development programmes are ideally delivered as part of a management development process; however, they may also be delivered as stand alone development programmes.
