Is Management for You?
This introduction to management is designed for anyone who is considering taking the step into management and leadership, but is unsure of what that entails, and whether it is the right step for them.
Put simply, management is the organisation and coordination of the activities of a business in order to achieve defined objectives.
Management consists of the interlocking functions of creating corporate policy and organising, planning, controlling, and directing an organisation’s resources–which includes the people employed within the organisation-in order to achieve the objectives of that policy.
This course will provide you with an opportunity to decide whether managing others is right for you. You’ll learn about some key skills and behaviours required to effectively manage others, enabling you to make an informed decision on whether management is a step you want to take.
Having attended this workshop learners will be able to:
- Define management
- Understand how management has evolved over time to its current form
- Identify what needs to be managed in today’s organisations
- Identify key behaviours managers demonstrate
- Understand some of the key challenges managers of today must deal with
This is a one day workshop which covers a wealth of knowledge to better enable leaders and managers to perform their role successfully.
Using a combination of group work, one to one discussions and sharing personal experiences to which this learning could be applied, the knowledge is embedded with activities and practical exercises, and the day ends with a plan for actioning this new learning in the workplace beyond the workshop.
