Training Effective Managers

Great managers are key to the success of any organisation. They lead their teams to ensure the work gets done, they uphold organisational standards, and they directly support and develop their team members.

STILLHR provides high-quality, bespoke interactive management workshops, reflecting best practice, compliant with legislation and tailored to organisational policy.

Innovative, stimulating, engaging and effective, delegates tell us they love our highly participative workshops which combine presentation, discussion, group work, and simulated scenarios using actors that put the theory into practice.

Often supporting a culture change or launching new HR policies, we work closely with our clients, listening and questioning to understand their requirements fully. By aligning ourselves to the client organisation, and understanding their management issues, we design workshops with impact and deliver agreed objectives in a cost-effective way.

Each training workshop is designed and tailored to the specific organisation. This is achieved by first gaining a deep understanding of the clients’ needs and the way it works in practice.

Our highly effective programmes have enabled better leadership and people management in many organisations including:

Nationwide Building Society East Kent Housing
Natural History Museum Oxford NHS
Refugee Council UNISON
Harper Adams University London Southbank University


Janet and Julie lead on leadership, Robert and Paula on our HR-related people management, Esther and Robert on Respect.

Our clients tell us good leadership and people management is central to improved organisational performance, and that managers are being given an increasing role to play in the implementation of good HR management practice embedding this into all departments.

Practice sessions

Managers must know what to say and say what they mean.

Whilst individual members of your staff may not be natural or skilled practitioners in some specific situations, the use of our especially designed practice sessions allow them to become more accomplished to achieve what they need to when faced with difficult challenges.

STILLHR management training workshops give participants the opportunity to practice conducting effective meetings on such issues as sickness, attendance, bullying, grievance, poor performance, misconduct, or selection interviews. To remove the embarrassment of participants being asked to role play, we work with a small group of role playing actors who fulfil the role of the employee.


After consultation and preparation with the client, scenarios are created which then allow managers the chance for ‘real life’ application of the policy and practise through one-to-one meetings.

Please contact us to discuss fully the needs of your organisation and your staff.
