Product Description

Introduction to Management

Management is a profession in its own right, with its own skills, techniques and knowledge, and like any other profession it has to be learned. This highly practical introduction to management course focuses on the human relations aspects of management. A superb foundation course for managers from any function.

 

The move into management is a big step for most people. They want to do well and deserve top rate training.

 

No one would entrust expensive equipment to an untrained person yet often new managers are put in charge of departments with several people and budgets of many thousands without any management training. This usually means they learn the hard way.

 

Just because a person is very good at their job does not automatically mean he or she will be a good manager. Additional skills are required – motivating and directing people, training new employees, handling conflict, delegating, giving praise or criticism, communicating effectively, evaluating performance, working to deadlines, building team spirit.

 

This introduction to management training looks at these skills in detail and is ideal for newly appointed or soon to be promoted managers and those with experience but no formal management training.

 

“Excellent – Encouraged thought process and common sense logistics which can be applied to every day scenarios. Adaptable approach and realistic expectations. Guidance to achieve my full potential through easily structured principles.”  – JW, General Manager, Advantage Office Supplies Ltd
