Management and Leadership

Due to the current political situation in the Kurdish Region of Iraq, unfortunately our Management & Leadership training has been postponed. If you are interested in attending this course, please email Lara from our team on so we can notify you when a new date is set.

People are the key to any effective humanitarian response.  Managing people can be difficult at the best of times, but during the chaos and stress of a complex humanitarian emergency, the ability to manage people is crucial for the success of any programme.

During this course, participants will have the opportunity to explore theories and practices of good management, and will learn how to employ different techniques of communication, negotiation, team building, and conflict management to develop a concrete set of management skills.

What does the course cover?

  • Roles and responsibilities of managers and leaders
  • Building and supporting a team
  • Communication and negotiation skills
  • Conflict management
  • Leadership and motivation
  • Performance management

By the end of the course participants will be able to:

  • Describe the role of the manager in humanitarian programmes and what it takes to be an exceptional manager
  • Demonstrate skills and attitudes needed to manage people effectively in emergencies
  • Utilise techniques for building and leading teams and learn ways to gain greater commitment from their team
  • Identify ways to motivate individuals and maximise their potential
  • Improve team performance through effective coaching and feedback
  • Demonstrate how to negotiate to achieve a WIN-WIN outcome and how to resolve conflict
  • Identify personal strengths and weaknesses in relation to managing in emergencies and draw up action points for further learning and development to improve their management style

Course structure:

Registration is from 8:45am, with the course starting at 9am and concluding by 5:30pm. Each day is broken up into four sessions, separated by a lunch break and coffee/ tea breaks in the morning and afternoon.

Participants will be actively encouraged to participate in classroom discussions and group work. The trainer will draw on both theoretical and practical knowledge in order to make the experience and learning applicable to the realities of the humanitarian sector.
