In the course you will engage with some HR theories and then see how they translate into every day working life.

At the end of the course we hope you will be better equipped to choose a suitable employee, to motivate and appraise your team, to manage conflict in the work place and to lead and make decision on a day to day basis.

I highly recommend this course to all People Managers and executive leadership.

I will strongly recommend this course for every manager irrespective of the number of staff, small, medium or large organization.You also need this in managing even conflicts in the home and society in general, not just in the work place.
