Online PR News – 24-November-2009 – – Project and programme management training provider, NES AIM Academy, is urging managers to act now to address weaknesses in their leadership capabilities or regret it in the future, after the findings of a recent survey by the Chartered Institute of Management (CIM) revealed that almost 50 percent of people have left a job because of bad management.

NES AIM Academy is urging managers to equip themselves with the skills needed to motivate, engage, understand and influence their staff in an environment that will have undoubtedly felt some impact of the recession.

“Managers must be able to create an environment for open communication; they must understand conflict management; and they must fully appreciate their own leadership style and acknowledge that now could be a time that this needs to change,” says Emma Nixon, training services manager at NES AIM Academy.

“Redundancies don’t just affect the people who leave a business, they affect those left behind too,” Emma continues, “…and a disgruntled workforce requires the guidance of an excellent manager,” she adds. “Managers don’t want to be disliked, they don’t want to be the reason that their staff leave and they don’t want to have to hire replacements, but they often don’t have any formal training – which is where professional courses can help,” Emma concludes.

NES AIM Academy runs a course called Leading and Managing in Unprecedented Times, which has been specially designed to deliver formal training in just two days to managers, giving them the core skills they need during what are, for many, truly testing times. More information about the course, including schedules and rates, can be found on the company’s website.
