About this course
This course aims to equip first-time managers with practical tools and techniques in management. As a manager, you will find yourself not only accountable for yourself, but responsible for the management of others as well. Should you come across as friendly and approachable, but risk your subordinates taking advantage of your good nature? Or should you keep your distance and let them know whose boss?
To be a competent manager, you have to be effective in various management functions. These include communication, planning, team building, handling conflict, decision making, managing performance and coaching others. You also need to adopt a systematic approach towards managing people.
Through this course, you will have instant access to best practices and techniques of management. In addition, by working with other new managers participating in this course, you will get a unique opportunity to sharpen your managerial skills, update your knowledge and gain valuable insights into everyday management challenges.
Furthermore, knowing how to effectively manage remote colleagues and stakeholders has become an essential management skill. During the course we will review options to manage remotely and also what tools can be used to optimize schedules in the new ‘work from home’ area.
