Course Description

"Management Essentials" is a course that's designed to help new and recently appointed managers better understand their role in leadership.  Through this course you will find out exactly what you need to learn about managing teams, as well as whether you can recall the information at the end of each lesson, and how to apply this information to your specific situation.

This course will cover several important topics, including: Setting the Tone, Directing Others Effectively, How Leaders Communicate, Delegating Responsibilities, Developing Your Team, Confronting Difficult Employee Behavior, Managing a Diverse Team, Treating Your Direct Reports Fairly, Caring about Your Direct Reports, Acting Decisively, Dismissing an Employee, and Managing During Transitions.

Not only will you learn about building confidence, making the best decisions, and how to interact with all members of your company, but you will also find out how to manage teams in a global environment. In addition, you will find out about how to handle difficult situations and when you need to let an employee go.

This course will also help you find out more about what it takes to be a manager when your team includes your friends, and how to develop your team into managers and supervisors.  You will also learn more from an extensive list of resources at the end of the course, including both book and website recommendations for further study.

The more you learn about being a manager, the more effective you can be. No matter what your management status or goals, "Management Essentials" can help you be the better leader who creates teams that deliver better results.
 


When you're asked to lead other people, it's a big responsibility. Not only are you in charge of the activities of others, but you're also responsible for the outcome of those activities. For many, moving into management is a process that happens after they've held  certain roles for certain periods of time, but that doesn't always mean they're ready for the position.

They might know how a company or an industry works, but if they don't know how people work – and how to work with them – the would-be manager may not do as well as they might like.

Learning how to lead others needs to be a part of the process. Certainly, there is room for a person to make mistakes, but having a framework in place, and some knowledge, can help a manager become more of a leader and less of a hesitant person-in-charge.

Managing others is a skill set that will evolve over time, and it's certainly a skill set that is unique to others. In this course, you will learn more about the essentials of management, but then you will put them into practice, which may cause you to change their details and their method of implementation.

Remember, it's not about following all of the advice in this course. At the very least, you can learn more about what managers do, how they do it, and how they can do it well.

This conversation includes you. You need to be ready to take on the role of leading others, and then looking at who you lead to see how you might need to adjust the way you do things.

In the end, it's about helping the company thrive. And you can't do it alone. You need the help of others. Here's how you can begin to show that you're the one that can lead them into success.
