The full set of competencies and accompanying behaviours that make a great manager, and how they map to our courses.
With chapters on (to name a few):
Aligning people and strategy
Many failed business strategies fail not because they are flawed, but because they are poorly communicated. Find out how to make sure your managers are communicating your strategy well, and living and breathing it throughout your business.
Can your managers play the role you need them to play? Not when you hired or last upskilled them, but now? If not, learn how to help them develop and adapt. It starts with identifying the competencies and behaviours they need to work on in order to shine.
Turbo-charging your people’s learning
Change is more difficult to implement without support. Understand exactly what coaching/mentoring is, how it works, and what you want from it. Team this with a strong working environment, and you’ll have enthused managers who are motivated to learn and improve.
