    I'm not sure if this is the right forum for my question?

    I'm looking for recommendations for London-based face-to-face training providers / courses in areas such as:

    - People management
    - Leadership skills
    - Conflict resolution

    This is for a manager in a smallish retail shop (overseeing four staff), so ideally shouldn't be too focussed on the corporate / office world.

    Grateful for any recommendations or tips on where to look. I'm wary of just choosing a provider off Google without reading reviews / recommendations.

    Thanks.

    This sort of stuff tends to be very expensive and of questionable benefit. If you search enough, you'll find plenty of free get togethers for business people and you're better off spending the money either on yourself with a professional qualification (there's an institute for anything) or just a budget for dealing with "conflict resolution" like a dinner or something.

    I mean, it's a small team and unless performance is really crucial, it's not money well spent unless, say, you're selling automatic rifles, case in which I'd really be worried about disgruntled employees as well.

    I think you can probably learn as much from books as you can from face to face training courses. There are lots of free online resources as well
