  • If you are new to project management, this program provides an introduction to the discipline and what is required to manage projects from a project team member’s perspective. The program will introduce the ten project management knowledge areas and the project lifecycle.

    Using a supporting case study you will work through the basic project management processes and discuss how these processes relate back to your own workplace experiences.
  • This program is designed to develop the personal insight necessary to work effectively with people, to avoid unnecessary conflict situations, to read people’s reactions and to modify your approach when appropriate. Maximise your ability to be viewed positively at work, and in all aspects of your life. Once you have grasped the basic concepts, you will find all of your relationships improving and your stress level dropping accordingly.
  • A regular challenge for every supervisor and manager is having a difficult conversation with a direct report, peer, boss, supplier or customer. These conversations can arise in a variety of situations including performance management, discipline, personal issues, redundancy, interpersonal conflict and customer service. This program aims to give you the skills and confidence to tackle these conversations and increase the likelihood of a successful outcome for all parties.

  • This valuable and practical program offers a deep exposure to the skill set of a successful coach. Participants gain exposure to the models and frameworks which are essential to the toolkit of any coach. The content is covered in a highly practical and interactive style that will enable everyone to acquire skills and expertise that can be applied immediately when they return to work.

    You may also be interested in the Coaching Masterclass program. Attendance on Building Your Coaching Skills is a pre-requisite for attending the Coaching Masterclass.

  • High performance is a paradox of the past. Sustainable performance is the paradigm of the future. Lead as the best version of yourself in 2019 and for the rest of your life!
  • This program teaches the fundamental concepts, terminology and basic features of Adobe InDesign. It shows participants how to produce documents, place text or graphics and how to create custom colour swatches.

    Participants will format text, work with layers, print documents and package documents for commercial printing.

  • In today’s world of accelerating change and increasing demands, our ability to process and embrace change is more critical than ever.  Often the pressures of change hold us back, fearing we can’t change, or perhaps that the old way is better.  The key is to think differently – to see change as an opportunity to grow – and believe that we can be the best we can be, regardless of the changes and obstacles we face.

    The question now becomes, “What are the barriers that are keeping us from success?”  It turns out that a lot of our success has to do with the way we think – our mindset.
  • Meetings are an established part of organisational life, but that doesn’t mean they are done well. This program explores the essential aspects of preparing for and recording the outcomes of efficient and effective meetings.
  • This program is designed for non-trainers who are required to deliver soft skills, induction, new work practices or other instruction in the workplace. The role may require coaching of individuals or small groups.
  • People management skills are an essential element to getting the best from your team. Although there are a large number of skills required, some are more important than others. This program is designed to develop the personal insights necessary to lead, manage and interact with your colleagues effectively and productively. Participants will have the opportunity to identify and practice the key skills of communication, motivation, delegation and problem solving so that they can learn to maximise their own potential and that of their staff.

    This premium program uses a blended learning approach which includes face-to-face sessions, access to our online learning platform and 12 months Professional Membership of AIM WA. Learn more at aimwa.com/blendedlearning
  • This highly practical and interactive program will provide participants with a clear framework to prepare a successful strategic business plan and to tailor it to the needs of their organisation or business unit. The program examines the key strategic business areas that a successful plan must consider, plus take into account equally important issues such as core values, purpose and mission statements.
  • The effective HR specialist needs to be not only a skilled practitioner, but also a skilled negotiator and adviser. This program will develop the skills and knowledge which must be acquired by HR professionals early in their careers, and provides the opportunity for line managers to widen their knowledge.
