HR Skills for Managers Training Workbook
Your team, your responsibility!
When our trainer says this in the HR skills for managers training course there’s usually a little resistance (to say the least) from the managers and leadership teams sitting the course.
Why do you think this is?
Fear of dealing with staff issues or a bad habit of relying on the HR team to do everything.
Probably a bit of both
In our experience HR teams are over stretched and managers don’t have the knowledge to deal with some of the simple day-to-day issues that can be resolved without any dramas. Or they don’t understand why processes like a back to work interview is so important
Once the managers have the knowledge so many things can be resolved effectively and informally without just being ‘brushed under the carpet’.
On a previous session one of the managers completing the training said, “I didn’t realise how much managers can and should be doing within their own teams” – what a result!
The author, who has worked as a HR lead is the businesses that he has managed and has represented himself (and won) during an industrial tribunal, covers the following topics in this 50-page workbook:
- The introduction (The why)
- My HR Philosophy
- Roles and Responsibilities of a HR Practitioner
- Employment Tribunals
- The Equality Act 2021
- The ACAS Code of Practice
- Discrimination Definitions
- Parental Leave
- Dependency Leave
- Flexible Working
- Performance Management
- Difficult conversations
- The 7 things
One of the key messages apart from ‘Your team, your responsibility’ is ‘Improve, Not Remove’. There is a system with the pages that managers can use to help the team member improve in their role. If you have a system in place that’s great, if you haven’t you can use the one in the HR skills for managers workbook

What one of our clients thought:
"A very thought-provoking session given by Adrian. A large amount of takeaways and some interesting anecdotes to help back up the theory. Would have liked to explore the managing vs coaching theme in a deeper way probably because I am a Man Utd fan. Some good interactive elements. Most important thing is that we use these takeaways regularly". Tom - The Creative Engagement Group - (Singapore)
