Who Should Attend:
This program is helpful for new and experienced managers who want to become better, more effective leaders.
Managing others may not be complex . . . but it is certainly not easy. What often appears to be simple, straightforward principles can be deceptively difficult to implement. Designed for practicing managers, this program focuses on the very practical understanding and application of management principles and teaches the fundamentals of management from different angles – managing oneself, managing organizational life, and managing others (managing upward, downward and sideways). Management is contextual and requires judgment and participants should expect to grapple with ambiguous situations that do not have simple solutions.
