Discover Which of Happy's Leadership Courses is Right For You

In: BlogDate: Feb 19, 2024By: Claire Lickman

We have workshops to suit all management levels and experience - but it can be hard to know which one is right for you.

All of our programmes use the same basic principles, as outlined in our CEO's book, The Happy Manifesto. We are leading a movement towards teams built on trust and self-management, as we know this allows people to do their best work. We have helped hundreds of organisations improve their staff productivity, lower costs, increase retention and dramatically increase profits.

Here is our guide to some of our leadership programmes, and when they are next running as public dates (open to all), wherever you are on your leadership journey.

Hi, we are Happy

We are leading a movement to create happy, empowered and productive workplaces.

How can we help you and your people to find joy in at least 80% of your work?

More about Happy

Managing for the First Time

This is one of our most popular workshops, designed for those who are new to managing teams. Set yourself up to succeed with this two-day workshop to help you understand what makes a great manager. This is designed for new, junior or future managers, team leaders and supervisors. Join us next online on 4th July or in the classroom on 24th April. Learn more

The Happy Workplace Leadership Programme

Our flagship programme, it's designed for those who currently have direct-line responsibility. It will give you the skills to coach your team and enable them to work at their best. You will also gain insight into your own leadership and communication styles, and discover how to be more productive rather than just busy. We have several different delivery methods - but generally it is 4 x 1 day sessions over 4 months. Learn more

Brave Leadership Programme

Brave is our one-year development programme for women. It's designed to help women in the workplace unleash their brilliance while also identifying and enabling greatness in others. It will help you to gain the confidence, knowledge and sustainable skills to lead others. It includes access to a library of online resources as well as a network of other female leaders. It's held over a year, with one half-day session per month and work inbetween. The next cohort starts in March. Learn more

Level 7 Senior Leadership Apprenticeship Programme

Our Level 7 programme is designed for senior leaders who want to make a real cultural change in their workplace. It is practical and hands on, and will support you to create a self-managing organisation. You need to be at a senior level, such as a CEO, Director or Head of Department. Our next public programme begins in September. Learn more

These new programmes are also available as private group events so you can help your whole leadership team to gain the skills they need to create happier, more productive workplaces. We can customise all programmes to suit your needs and work with you to transform your organisation. Contact us by email or call us on 020 7375 7300 for a free quote.
