Managing Managers
Overview:

Why a program about managing managers? What is it that’s difficult? #1: Balancing daily tasks with long-term strategic thinking. If you have managers reporting to you, lots of their “stuff” ends up being “fires” for you to put out. #2: Your direct reports may manage a wide variety of functions, and it’s difficult for you to create a sense of unity and cohesiveness for your entire group. #3: If you’re typical of most mid-level managers (and of most people!), you would just as soon ignore sticky situations such as dealing with difficult people. In fact, you may even back away. Managing managers takes courage, and in this course we give you a simple, but effective two-pronged approach — focusing on developing your business strategy, while also improving your leadership skills.

Mid-level managers seeking to improve their management skills and abilities.
