Managing Difficult Colleagues

Managing Difficult Colleagues - and Yourself!™

A 3-day course.

Intensive coaching, practice and feedback in delivering prepared input to groups.

Over its 33 years existence, APT has learned a lot about leading structured groups and this course is designed to impart as much as possible of that knowledge to people who need to run groups themselves. There is relatively much less lecture input on this course than on most APT courses and much more emphasis on role play. Rather like learning to drive a car, you learn more by doing it than by discussing it, so, over the three days every delegate has a chance to (a) run a structured group, (b) be a participant on a structured group and (c) objectively analyse other people running groups. By the end of the course our aim is that firstly you know a lot about running groups, but, more importantly, you are able to do it well: the tutor will spend much more time in coaching than in lecturing.
