Programme objectives.

Acorn’s Line Management course is suitable for newly appointed line managers and those with experience who want to improve their effectiveness. It is specifically designed to help delegates understand and engage with what a line manager is supposed to do.

Through demonstration and practice using tools and techniques, delegates gain confidence in their ability to manage others.
