Courses for Young Professionals

Young Manager Skills training course


Young professionals who are being groomed for management positions must develop new skills quickly. However, they often have too little time in their hectic schedules for proper management training programmes. HollandVanKessel&Partners has the perfect solution: a training course that gives young, up-and-coming managers a real edge in their personal and professional development: Young Manager Skills.


Why a basic skill course for young managers?


Many medium-sized companies have no formal training programme for their managers. People who perform well for the company get promoted to managerial positions. Things often go like this: there is a mound of work that must be dealt with quickly, so highly motivated workers jump in to lead the team or project. And they take on these responsibilities without management training, because few companies can afford an in-house instructor or have the resources to send their managers on multi-day training sessions. Some of these ‘instant managers’ rapidly lose their footing after their initial trial by fire.


Courses for Young Consultants


Our one-day Young Consultants training course teaches the target group how they add value to your business by underscoring your company’s vision and commercial goals. They will improve their sales acumen and their professional presentation skills, enabling them to meet and exceed commercial goals while maintaining a relaxed composure. They will develop themselves as professional consultants, which includes the acquisition and building of customer relationships in the business-to-business sector.


Better in sales, communication and customer management


Your Young Executives will learn skills that will enable them to:

• present their expertise to further your commercial goals effectively
• improve their social skills
• become better attuned to your customers’ wishes and needs by listening more intently
• elicit and identify customers’ questions and respond to them appropriately
• present their know-how persuasively
• engender confidence among your customers
• take measured risks thanks to their analytical abilities
• enhance their social skills in the area of customer relations

Following completion of the programme, your Young Professionals will have far more confidence when dealing with prospects or clients, and they will be able to present your company, product or service with aplomb. They will be able to forge solid relationships with customers based on a solid foundation of trust.
