FIA and Rathbone Results collaborate on Management Development Programme

25 September 2023

THE FIRE Industry Association and Rathbone Results have announced the forthcoming launch of a new Management Development Programme created for – and in conjunction with – business owners, leaders and managers in the fire safety sector. To be introduced on 26 October, the five-day online Management Development Programme aims to equip fire and security managers with the skills necessary to attain higher performance levels.

In essence, the Management Development Programme is aimed squarely at fire safety and security managers who need to confidently lead their staff, teams and organisations towards the delivery of enhanced operational regimes.

Entitled ‘Equipping Your Fire and Security Managers for Higher Performance’, the online Management Development Programme consists of a series of seven half-day modules delivered via Zoom, plus two half-days of self-work, covering the following areas:

*Change management and change resistance

*Time management and priorities

*Delegation and performance management

*Clear communication and effective meetings

*Building high performance teams and great places to work

*Developing a ‘whole business’ perspective

*Understanding business finance

With a view towards ensuring high impact, the powerful and practical course is limited to just 12 participants. This will then optimise participation, the application of learning in the workplace and the formation of new ‘business as usual’ Best Practice.

Landmark initiative

Fire Industry Association CEO Ian Moore explained: “We are pleased to collaborate with Rathbone Results on this landmark initiative. Our primary focus has always been on technical competency, but given the ever-evolving dynamics of our industry, equipping its leaders and managers with top-tier management skills is paramount. This tailored Management Development Programme reflects our steadfast commitment to fostering excellence across all facets of the fire safety sector.”

Moore continued: “Our ambition is to create an holistic ecosystem of professionals who are not only technically proficient, but also have the vision and capability to steer their teams and organisations towards higher horizons when it comes to performance. With this Management Development Programme, we are elevating standards and paving the way towards a more resilient, efficient and high-performing fire industry.”

Jim Rathbone, chair and founder of Rathbone Results, stated: “We’ve worked closely with the Fire Industry Association to fashion this Management Development Programme and make it relevant for fire industry businesses. We’ve drawn on our extensive experience of working both within and alongside clients in the sector and identified the key milestones and challenges fire and security companies face during business transformation and growth.”

Rathbone concluded: “This Management Development Programme has been designed to practically equip managers and leaders in these growth-focused business sectors to understand and achieve the high performance needed from their teams such that they can then seek to scale upwards.”

Attendees of the full Management Development Programme will receive a Certificate of Participation and Completion, co-badged by the Fire Industry Association and Rathbone Results, plus 28 CPD hours awarded by the Trade Association.
