Some managers inspire, some motivate, and others fail miserably to engage their employees. To be a great manager, you must have an extensive set of skills – from planning and delegation to communication and motivation. An effective manager takes responsibility for ensuring that each individual within his/her department succeeds and that the team or business unit achieves results. Successful managers require both talent and skill. For your business to grow and remain healthy, your managers must master certain basic skills in management and leadership. The basic skills include problem solving and decision making, planning, meeting management, delegation, communications and managing themselves. Because the skill set is so wide, it's tempting to build skills in the areas of management that they are already comfortable with. But, for your long-term success, it's wise to analyze their skills in all areas of management – and then to challenge them to improve in all of these areas.
Building effective management skills can help you and your organization succeed in today’s environment. This workshop will offer you management competencies to help you develop and refine the skills you need to manage people more effectively—and be ready for unexpected change. The program will explore both traditional and non-traditional management styles through education, best practices, and developmental activities.
