The Straight A Manager
The Straight A Manager examines communication and work ethic characteristics that individuals must employ to excel at their jobs and, as managers, create an environment of excellence. The three characteristics of a Straight A Manager include attitude, ambition and accountability. Beginning the course with this examination provides a solid foundation for participants to develop the understanding, values and competencies necessary to become effective and results-oriented managers.
The Effective Manager – Part One
Part one of the program introduces two disciplines that focus on the “people” side of running an organization: Managing People and Team Building. The Managing People session clarifies the relationship between the company and the individual. Companies never hire people. People hire people. The strategies that govern successful hiring, effective coaching and mentoring, useful performance evaluations, and fair progressive discipline and terminations must be clearly understood by every employee – managers and subordinates alike. Four primary elements of managing people are examined in this session:
The Team Building session covers what it takes to build and run an effective team. Before managers decide to build a team, they must understand that people are fundamentally different. Likewise, team members must not only possess the appropriate skills, but they must understand their “team role” to meet expectations and deliver outstanding results. Five essential elements of team-building are examined in this session:
The Effective Manager – Part Two
Part three of the program continues with two elements that lead to organizational success; Sales and Project Management. Just because your customers know about your products or services doesn’t mean they will sign on the dotted line. Marketing is merely the thinking process behind selling. A sale requires a blend of product/service knowledge and interpersonal skills. Three stages of selling necessary to achieve certain sales goals of an organization are examined in this session:
Project Management is somewhat of a performing art. The course closes with a sessions that examines the role of the Project Manager, the five stages of any project and the importance of leadership in the Project Manager role:
