Why a CMI qualification is worth it

Most team leaders and managers go through their career without any formal training. CMI says approximately 70% of people are what they term accidental managers. This term encapsulates those who haven’t got any formal management training but have become managers. The qualification ensures you don’t fall into these categories and are equipped with the core knowledge and the right sort of skills to be able to manage. These skills include, people’s absence and performance, the development of your team and handling difficult conversations. Key management skills that are really worth knowing when you’re starting out.
