Is it worth investing your money on a Chartered Management Institute Qualification?

Watch this 3min video below with Stephanie Leigh-Rose and Malcolm Johnston.

Your confidence and developing leadership skills – Malcolm

Getting some formal training in management and leadership is a good idea. You cannot grow into it naturally.

Many companies do not invest in helping their teams to become better leaders. Tools and techniques can help you become a better manager and leader.

The formal course will give you confidence in your leadership abilities and help you develop your leadership skills.

The tools are powerful for leadership training – Stephanie

You cannot underestimate the importance of having a toolkit and tools at your disposal.

Taking the time to review, learn, hear different perspectives, different ways of being a manager, and different ways of being managed. Its impact on the business as a whole, on the individual as a whole.

Being able to take that in, and then later on, as you progress through different management styles, teams, and levels, you can pick and choose what’s going to serve you and your team best.

Benefit at every stage of your Management career – Malcolm

Learning with others is another benefit.

Being a middle manager or junior middle manager, one doesn’t realize that pretty much every other junior and middle manager is in the same situation.

By sharing your story and your time with others, you will learn more about yourself, more about other people, and look at the various ways in which you can lead, since there isn’t just one way to lead.

Learn new ways to manage – Stephanie

There’s more than one way to do it, and when we talk about international business, you begin to understand, “Oh, other people manage their teams differently.”

It’s then possible to find a middle ground or a compromise, and I think we talk about changing tack or going with the flow, and you become more relevant in the organisation.
