Often, managers have all of the strengths they need to succeed in the job – except the ability to manage employees well. If they are not equipped with management know-how, it can be a surprisingly overwhelming transition from individual contributor to people manager.
Being able to manage well can help minimize the stress that comes with the role, and a good manager can successfully handle staff, projects, performance, conflict, and themselves while they evaluate and continuously improve their effectiveness as a manager.
Learning to Manage walks participants through the process of successful management by introducing the tools and techniques for effectively handling five target areas – people, projects, performance, problems, and personal development. Each of these areas is essential to minimizing the stress associated with the transition from individual work as you learn to delegate, communicate, and most of all, develop your employees – laying the foundation for productivity and organizational success.
