The Effective Manager Two-Day Program Overview:

The Effective Manager - Part One
Building self-understanding and then translating it into an organizational context is easier said than done, and getting started is often the hardest part. Part One this Course focuses on the individual and introduces participants to methods of looking inward as a way of examining their unique modes of operating and what makes them tick. We know people have their own inner lives, including their beliefs, priorities, aspirations, values, and fears. These intrinsic elements vary from one person to the next and significantly influence their decisions in the workplace. Knowing oneself establishes a strong foundation for successful management of others, the subject of Part Two of this Course.

The Effective Manager - Part Two
Organizations don’t hire people—people hire people. Part Two of this Course introduces two disciplines that focus on the people side of running an organization: Management and Team Building. The management session clarifies the relationship between the organization and the individual. The strategies that govern successful hiring, including 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. Part Two will close with a session on Project Management. The five stages of a typical project and the importance of leadership are covered and participants will develop and present a Capstone Project Plan, closing the Course with a hands-on and meaningful experience.
