“People join businesses but leave managers.”

The truth is inescapable, the outcomes often devastating and yet so many businesses suffer self inflicted wounds by not giving those responsible for the performance and direction of others the one thing they need : To be empowered and supported then given a structured and personalised management development programme to enable them to lead.

Whether new to a people management role and grappling with some of the issues of no longer being the coworker or still finding that getting the best from the team is not proving as straightforward as you had hoped, you know that managing performance and engagement, leading and dealing with people is a complicated and often difficult role.

Our team do not give you a set of models and templates, they don’t tell you how to do something. They share ideas and tools that work, explain how and why they work and then help you interpret those into practical applications for you. Things that fit not only you and your style, but your challenges, your environment.

Effective managers are people who get things done because their teams to want to do the things they need them to do. They don't just manage people, they lead them.

Example Sector Specific

Oil & Gas

21st Century Leadership in Oil and Gas

Manufacturing and Technical

Engineer to Manager ~ The Toolkit for Success                                 

Moving from the role of an Engineer to that of a Manager is a significant step and requires specific support and training different from that often found in commerce.

The challenge of how to move away from being the technical expert and into a manager of people not processes and systems is a remarkably tough. Again, with Atman coming from an operational effectiveness perspective leads to directly to transformation.

Although originating in manufacturing this support has evolved to deliver productivity uplift in sectors such as Construction, IT, Defence and Education

Professional Services

The Leaderpreneur                                 

Law firms, accountants, advisors and consultancies are all experiencing a constant and growing wave of change in the way their practices operate. The pressure to change is immense and a key strand to the strategy for success is often working with the Atman team to ensure that staff at all levels are able to enhance performance, capitalise on challenges and maximise opportunities by developing their people management, talent development skills, organisational architecture and operational effectiveness.


Bid Management and Evaluation  ~ The Responsible Customer      

Procurement managers the world over complain about the quality of bids they receive, suppliers the world over complain about the narrowness of tender processes. In both cases neither party are convinced of the effectiveness of the process and as such nobody really wins.

Break that mould by combining structured tendering best practice with the skills of effective management and build a roadmap to successful tendering for vendor selection and development.
