Leadership and Management training courses

Our range of leadership and management training programmes help you discover and fulfil your potential in order to create happy, productive and successful workplaces.

Happy’s range of leadership and management training programmes have been designed to help you to create a work culture based on staff engagement, trust and autonomy. This is based on our own practical experience at Happy, a top 20 UK Best Workplace for five successive years, as well as learning from some of the world’s greatest workplaces like Google and WL Gore. These ideas have been proven to improve staff productivity, lower costs and increase staff retention – and dramatically increased profits.

Based on the principles of the Happy Manifesto book by our CEO Henry Stewart, our Happy Workplace Leadership Programmes focus on enabling leaders and managers to put their team at the heart of what they do. You will identify your strengths and those of your team for better results, become a credible and trustworthy leader, and create higher levels of trust, accountability and job ownership within your team.

We offer Management and Leadership programmes for first-time managers all the way up to Director and Chief Executive level, to support and empower you and your staff. Each of our programmes is spread over a number of months to enable you to transform your workplace and positively impact your business long-term.

Private group courses

If you have a group of five or more learners, a private group course may be a better option for you.
