"But why should I take your course, Alan?"

And that's an important question. Now, it may seem counter-intuitive, but I'm going to paraphrase something George Bernard Shaw said "Those who can, do. Those who can't, teach", but some do both.

I remember when I was doing my formal qualifications in my chosen profession quite a few years of my lecturers often started his sentences with "When I was in industry..." He was a great guy, no doubt a brilliant academic, but he hadn't practised what he was teaching for over 20 years. I think it's a perishable skill.

I could tell you I've worked at a senior level across several very different industry sectors: automotive, manufacturing, FMCG, healthcare, pharma, and service industries. I've worked in both the public and private sectors. I've been head-hunted by blue chip companies, Times Top 100 companies...but all of that is history. The important thing is...I still do it.

This isn't a course on management theory. There are lots of those already. It's a practical one. It's hands on.

  • I will guide you through my Three T's Methodology for creating super-star teams, complete with 9 actionable exercises that you can do today.
  • I'll share with you my interview process for recruiting great people.
  • NLP techniques for effective communication.
  • We will cover the best ways to motivate your team.
  • Practical day-to-day leadership and management.
  • What to do with under-performers.
  • I'll even share all the best lessons I've learned from my great managers.

This course is the result of 30 years of ongoing experience.

  • If you currently lead, or manage people, you should take this course.
  • If you aspire to lead, or manage people in the future, you should take this course.

Enrol now, and become the leader I know you can be!

See you in the course!


"Alan's experience is very valuable. It holds some eye-opener situations when you have to focus on process & solutions, not people to blame. Also a very easy-to-follow course, divided in small chunks easy to hear. Helpful course to have if you don't have great amounts of time at your disposal." - H. Paúl Cervera-García

"Good stuff. More practical stuff than most leadership books." - Joseph D. Rotman

"...a terrific course for someone at any level of management. Does a great job in focusing on true leadership with business examples; not simply pointing out 'management' tactics that specifically apply to the workplace. Highly recommend!"- Thomas Riley

"Simply awesome course, I loved the examples and how Alan explained everything. Well worth doing.!" - Stephen Lugar

"I really had some fun and learned a lot...Thank you for sharing your experience!" - Pedro Henrique

"I love Alan! He is easy to understand and learn from" - DeLisa Newstrom

What does study method mean?

Study method describes the format in which the course will be delivered. At Reed Courses, courses are delivered in a number of ways, including online courses, where the course content can be accessed online remotely, and classroom courses, where courses are delivered in person at a classroom venue.

What are CPD hours/points?

What is a ‘regulated qualification’?

A regulated qualification is delivered by a learning institution which is regulated by a government body. In England, the government body which regulates courses is Ofqual. Ofqual regulated qualifications sit on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF), which can help students understand how different qualifications in different fields compare to each other. The framework also helps students to understand what qualifications they need to progress towards a higher learning goal, such as a university degree or equivalent higher education award.

What is an ‘endorsed’ course?

An endorsed course is a skills based course which has been checked over and approved by an independent awarding body. Endorsed courses are not regulated so do not result in a qualification - however, the student can usually purchase a certificate showing the awarding body’s logo if they wish. Certain awarding bodies - such as Quality Licence Scheme and TQUK - have developed endorsement schemes as a way to help students select the best skills based courses for them.
