Leadership and management are critical components for any successful business, particularly in the precision engineering industry. As Directors, it is crucial to our business to ensure that our team is equipped with the necessary skills to manage and lead their colleagues effectively. This is where our introductory leadership and management skills programme comes into play.

The programme comprises of eight modules, each designed to enhance the skills of participants in different areas. The modules were developed in collaboration with Steve, with a focus on making them specific to the needs of the Quest organisation. Although some modules may require further development, the programme covers a range of vital topics for our precision engineering business.
