Managing others is a challenge. It always has been, and it always will be. If you are lucky, you have worked for a fabulous manager. Someone who was fair, competent, pleasant, and understood how to create a motivating work environment for his employees. Great managers are fabulous role models for their employees. Unfortunately, not everyone who is in a management position, is good at managing others. There is a difference between management and leadership. Managers do things right, leaders do the right things. This brand new workbook is about management development.
There are a variety of reasons people end up in management positions.
They took a test, scored well on the test and received a promotion to manager/boss. (This method is typical in civil service organizations. A police officer takes a test to become a police sergeant.)
They were born into the family business.
They were a fabulous individual contributor, so they received a promotion to manager.
There was no one else available to take the management job.
They received an MBA and were hired to manage.
Rarely does a person get promoted to a management position because he has fabulous management skills. Most managers learn how to become an effective manager while they are on the job gaining experience and making mistakes. If managers are lucky, they receive some training along the way or have a mentor who is invested in their development. The purpose of this workbook is to give you a few tips about how to be a better manager. A few of the topics covered include:
Dealing with Difficult People
Creating a Motivating Work Environment
Leading a Multi-generational Workforce
Sexual Harassment Awareness
The workbook is currently available on Amazon http://www.amazon.com. You can use the workbook in one of your management training programs or you can hire one of our trainers to facilitate a training program.
