As a  new manager, you face many challenges. You need to manage your team, manage up and fulfil your leadership role in relation to other stakeholders such as senior managers, colleagues and external partners. This training for new managers teaches you how to have the necessary conversations and develop your own effective leadership style.

The training starts with a fundamental skill of effective leadership: active listening. Then you practise coaching, giving feedback, influencing and explore how you can adapt your style to lead effectively in different situations. We look at leading teams, dealing with conflict and negotiating. You also deepen your understanding of your role and what your priorities are within it.

As well as theory and tips, there is lots of practice. Throughout the programme we apply the theoretical components to real-life situations.

The following subjects are covered:

  • Active listening
  • Coaching
  • Giving and receiving feedback
  • Situational leadership
  • Developing personal authority
  • Leading teams
  • Setting priorities and goals
  • Dealing with conflict
  • Influencing
  • Negotiating  
  • Decision-making in teams
  • Influencing people with “difficult” behaviour

You can also continue to work on your own personal strength, communication and leadership skills on your own initiative. Everything at your own pace, wherever and whenever you want. 


  • You have a clear vision of leadership
  • You communicate effectively with individuals and groups
  • You have more influence

Start and end measurement

This course improves your skills. We can guarantee that. How? Before you start your course, you take a scan. This determines your starting level and helps set the right goals. You receive a personal report. That way, you know exactly where you stand, what you want to accomplish, and how to get there. Your trainer helps you to focus and develop, in order to reach your full potential. After your training is done, you take another scan. This end measurement shows how much you’ve grown, and where you can still develop your skills further.

The total duration of the training course is 9 weeks. The training course consists of an online kick-off, 1 block of 2 days and 2 blocks of 1 day. Your time investment is approximately 2,5 hours of self study a week: theoretical and practical through the MijnSN learning community.

Block 1

  • day 1 from 9.30 AM till 5.00 PM
  • day 2 from 9.30 AM till 5.00 PM

You train virtual? Then we modify the course days: a training that original takes one day, will be virtual in two days of 3,5 hours. In this way we ensure that you do not spend full days behind your screen and you stay fresh enough to absorb the information. View the schedule for your course days and times.


The maximum group size for the training course is 12 participants.


Real learning starts with the practical application of what you have learned. You will commence several practical assignments within your own organization, selecting a mentor to supervise and stimulate your learning process - before the first meeting. The mentor could be your manager or a (senior) colleague. For more information on the mentor's role please visit www.sn.nl/mentor. After three weeks you will take your experiences in this regard to the next meeting.


On completion of the training course and subject to attendance and active participation, Schouten & Nelissen University of Applied Sciences will award a certificate. Our certificates are highly regarded in the business community.
