Management Fundamentals course is geared towards New Managers who has just been promoted from a non-managerial (technical specialist) role to one where they have to manage others. However, it can also be used as a preparation for when they do get that managerial role i.e. aspiring managers, as well as by current managers to brush up on some skills that might have become a little rusty! It provides the tools and techniques necessary to the transition from a manager of self to a manager of others.
Amongst the key topics covered, it explores the mind set shift and change in focus needed, managing the perceptions and changes in relationships, common managerial styles and how to use them to manage effectively, the complexity of team dynamics and creating the right culture for your team.
Organizations tend to promote people into managerial roles without setting them up for success by ensuring that they have the skills required to make this fundamental shift. A dangerous assumption is made which can result in a very difficult and demotivating few months for both the new manager and the team, …or even worse, a high performer can end up being promoted into incompetence. The end result can be a lack of motivation, a loss of confidence, non-delivery, performance management and potentially the exit of a previously high performing employee.
I use examples and practical experience gained from my 25 years of being a Human Resources Director and Human Capital Specialist to illustrate the points covered.
This course will give you the tools, steps and techniques that you will need to set yourself up for success!
