To meet the current needs in the Hospitality Sector within the South-East, County Wexford Chamber Skillnet and County Tipperary Chamber Skillnet are collaborating and working with LEAP Leadership to deliver a tailored programme to support the development of emerging team leaders and supervisors within the sector.

With the ongoing growth in the hospitality sector, the requirement for all managers to excel at their role is becoming more critical to the growth and development of individual companies. With the diverse nature of the ongoing responsibilities of managers in the hotel sector and with the increasingly diverse workforce, there is considerably more pressure on hotel management to ensure best practices in People Management, are deployed across the organisation.

At an individual level, like most people new to management, the Emerging Managers need to excel at understanding how to deliver an excellent service in its multiple forms to the customer. However the Emerging Managers also need to have significant knowledge, skills and capability gaps when it comes to:

• Managing their team

• Improving the performance and contribution of their area of responsibility on an on-going basis

• Applying proven practices to improve people management capabilities


The Emerging Hospitality Management Development Programme will provide the participants with the skills and knowledge to:

Significantly improve People management skills, specifically in the areas of:

o Communication

o Delegation

o Conflict management

o Giving feedback

o Providing direction and focus

o Problem solving

Develop and deploy proven business disciplines such as:

o Use of targets and KPI’s to drive performance

o Regular review of progress by the team and agreement to actions to address issues

o Taking responsibility for the successful development of their team

o Become an enabler and facilitator of positive change to ensure the potential of the Hotel’s product offering is maximised

o Think and act collaboratively with fellow managers for the overall benefit of the Hotel and the full team


The format of the programmes is outlined below, please also refer to the programme schedule for all 15 online sessions.

Five online workshops as outlines below.



Great managers understand that there is a direct link between employees who take an active interest in what is happening in the business and the achievement of business results. Thus the challenge for the great manager is to ensure that employees remain engaged and focused. They need to determine ways of motivating employees to take an active interest in what they can do to perform their jobs to the highest level and deliver on the agreed targets. When managers do this effectively they become great managers. It is critical that the great manager knows how to select the right person for the defined role, set clear expectations, motivate employees and develop the person in line with the direction of the business. This workshop will address these key areas and will assist you in determining how you will become a great manager.

Objectives: As a result of this workshop participants will:

 Determine effective approaches you can use to select and recruit the right people for your organisation.

 Align expectations for individual roles to the defined business objectives.

 Identify motivating factors and determine ways of applying them to your organisation.

 Set a clear and practical action plan for developing your skills as a great manager.


Communication is more than speaking words. It is about listening to understand and then using that information to influence action. It’s about letting the other person know they are heard and then responding in a way that encourages co-operation and collaboration. It’s about enhancing working relationships as people employ effective styles and approaches to communication.

Objectives: As a result of this workshop participants will:

 Understand how communication works and what you can do to enhance your skills

 Recognise the impact of different communication styles and determine ways to develop the optimum approach

 Address difficult situations with increased confidence and skill

 Use communication skills to enhance team collaboration and co-operation


Employees respond to the behaviours of their managers. It is therefore imperative that managers understand their behaviours and identify ways to manage those behaviours successfully. This workshop will focus on personal understanding: what motivates you and what are your blind spots? What coping mechanisms have you developed that are serving you well and what ones need to be replaced with more effective methods that enables you to manage your team effectively? While you need to manage your team you also need to understand how to develop a strong working relationship with your manager.

Objectives: As a result of this workshop participants will:

 Understand their personality type: their strengths and their blind spots

 Determine approaches to managing their blind spots

 Recognise what motivates their team members

 Develop strategies for building strong relationships with their team members and their manager.


What are your greatest time wasters? How do you tap into the resource of time and use it efficiently and effectively? How do you maintain excellent customer service while meeting the demands of your job? Develop strategies for managing your time and apply proven approaches to time management to your work situation to enhance your productivity. Determine priorities and map out how to effectively manage those priorities. Ensure your approach to managing time is workable and practical. Identify an action plan that will assist you in increasing your work performance.

Objectives: As a result of this workshop participants will:

 Analyse their current work practices to assess overall effectiveness

 Identify areas and practices that are “time wasters” and develop alternative approaches to handling them effectively

 Prioritise work resulting in more effective use of time

 Eliminate the “Urgency Addiction”

 Balance work demands and the provision of excellent customer service

 Minimise distractions that negatively impact work and progress


This workshop will provide the opportunity for team members to explore what it means to deliver excellent customer service. Engaging in a process of determining each “Moment of Truth” and setting the standards of care for each moment will facilitate team involvement and inclusion. It will also ensure that the care provided is based on the knowledge of The organisation and its customers. Providing employees with the tools to effectively respond to customers and manage challenging situations with professionalism and care is important.

Objectives: As a result of this workshop participants will:

 Determine the standards of care customers expect and will receive

 Agree on approaches for managing difficult situations effectively

 Commit to actions to enhance the care provided: following up on commitments given, demonstrating accountability for identified actions

 Appreciate the value and complexity of different cultural requirements

 Demonstrate effective customer care communication skills
