Who should attend this course?

Those new to or with limited experience of line management, or perhaps those that want a refresher on some of the key topics.

What to expect

If you register for one of our training courses you don’t only get a day of in-depth and practical training from some of the industry’s most respected professionals, you also get a ticket to Europe’s biggest specialist SEO event.

100% Money Back Guarantee

There’s simply no worse feeling than putting aside a day out of the office to go to a training course, handing over your cash and a course failing to live up to your expectations.

We do all we possibly can to make our courses the best you’ve attended but if you ever feel we didn’t live up to your expectations, we’ll give you a total refund, no questions asked.

Course overview

In an industry where talented Executive-level employees can quickly be promoted into people-management roles, those with little hands-on management experience can end up being responsible for someone else without the necessary skills.

This course will help to equip those in either line or team management roles with the tools they need to develop their employees effectively. It will cover various theoretical ideas, along with practical group exercises to keep engagement strong throughout the day.

Most importantly, it will provide takeaways that participants can immediately apply to the management-elements of their roles when they return to the office.

Course details

The day will include a mix of theory and workshops, covering topics including:

  • Our role as a manager
  • Current management challenges and tackling common problems
  • What makes a good manager vs. a bad manager
  • Communicating openly and honestly
  • Importance of onboarding and training
  • Giving effective feedback
  • Importance of one to ones
  • Setting expectations
  • Dealing with difficult conversations
  • How to build ‘candid’ relationships (separating being a ‘friend’ from being a ‘manager’)
  • How to build trust
  • Management styles
  • When to take different management approaches
  • The benefits of coaching
  • Managing difficult employees
  • Managing ambitious employees
  • Team dynamics
  • How to increase your employee’s/team’s productivity
  • Combating procrastination and how to make marginal gains
  • Effective team culture and the importance of psychological safety
  • Managing mental health (for you and your employees)
  • Building emotional intelligence

Why Train with BrightonSEO

Experts, not Trainers

We won’t waste your time sitting you in front of full time trainers who haven’t got their hands dirty for god knows how long; we get experts from different fields of the industry on board to give you the information they know works, not just the theory of what’s supposed to.

Specific, Detailed and Unique

Most training providers are looking for a course they can run month after month, week after week, so they end up being general and catch-all. Not our courses … they’re more detailed and in-depth than you’ll find anywhere else.

You Drive the Agenda

We don’t drive the agenda, you do. Before each training course, we ask what you want to be taught, and we actually listen. All the workshops we run have been selected because they’re the most commonly requested training subjects useful to you.

Group Sizes

The group sizes are ideal, more than a handful to offer a bit of diversity and substance to the day, but small enough that the training can remain hands-on and personal, making sure all questions are directly answered.

The Perfect Duration

The day runs from 9.30-4.00 to keep it punchy. Any longer than that and it starts to drag, any shorter and you’re not able to properly sink your teeth into what you’re covering. Don’t worry, you’ll also get plenty of breaks to network.

Proper Food & Drink

There’s a couple of coffee breaks, morning and afternoon, and we also provide a proper lunch. That’s right, we’re talking real food with beer and wine rather than soggy sandwiches or mush slopped from a tray.

Testimonials

Duncan’s CRO training was fantastic. He demonstrated the conversion optimisation process in a methodical and engaging way, using relevant case studies and activities to bring it to life. I definitely left with a reinforced appreciation of how important CRO is for us and also the confidence to strengthen our own optimisation programme.
