A rigorous and demanding course central to the development of lodge managers and leaders of hospitality teams.

The intent of this course is to explore and analyse the operational principles and practices of managing a game lodge. The functionality, interrelationships and management of various divisions/departments of lodging operations and their respective roles and functional components are examined - including general management of staff.

During the course students focus intensively on Customer Service and the means of introducing Best Practice  Management Principles to daily operations at a lodge. Students will also learn how to apply Quality Assurance and Standard Setting initiatives to the operational and management strategies of the lodge. As part of the course curriculum students are also introduced to the theories and application of Influential Communication, Meeting Management, Staff Motivation and Job-role Selection techniques.

This rapid development program ensures that students are fully equipped with the essential Management capabilities, leadership skills and confidence to achieve success in the role of lodge manager.

We pack a huge amount into this course over the thirty day period offering participants a blend of easily accessible, pragmatic theory and practical thought-provoking exercises whilst ensuring that everyone goes away having had a really enjoyable and rewarding experience, and that you have a specific action plan to apply your management capabilities in a management role - with distinction.
