Talent Management for managers

Talent Management is not the sole domain of the HR or Learning & Development team. You need the commitment and understanding of your line and business managers to deliver your people strategy.

Made for managers

Our Talent Management for Managers programme is for those organisations looking to engage and upskill their managers to become more effective in the day-to-day recruitment, development and deployment of talent within the business. It is also designed for those tasked with designing and implementing talent academies.

Your people, your challenges, your strategy

Held at your premises or at a venue you select, this course consists of four half-day modules. As the programme draws on the challenges, experience and opportunities within your organisation, it’s vital that attendees have some management experience or talent responsibility.

Practical skills – not just the theory

This programme is unlike any other training course or programme on talent management.

Led by a business psychologist with experience across sectors and company size, you’ll learn about the theory and research. But more than this you’ll apply it practically to your business. There’s time for discussion of your organisation’s challenges and you’ll get pragmatic comment on how to put this into practice.


Cultivate shared ownership of talent development and internal mobility by empowering managers with the skills to unleash their teams’ potential.
