In modern business, there’s a lot of emphasis on leadership, and the vital role that leaders play. They do, but successful businesses also need good management.
Managers are vital in today's organisations; they are the link between the business strategy and the actual work that is done. It is their job to translate the wider business goals into day-to-day tasks and ensure that they are completed in the right way, to the right standard, at the right time, by the right person.
This Power Hour Session is all about identifying what managers need to do to be successful, in addition to being technically competent. By completing this Power Hour delegates will be able to:
- Explain what managers DO in specific terms.
- Describe an 8-step Management Cycle that is relevant for all management roles.
- Define what they need to do at each stage to be a successful manager in their organisation.
