Event description


About the workshop - How Do I Excel At Managing My People

Less than 20% of all managers in the UK are trained to do the job. And yet people-management is non-obvious. It’s to be learned.

This workshop comes at the end of a six-session series of manager development webinars. It aims to review all the main points raised in the webinars, adding meaning and explaining the management science further.

You will be able to identify from this workshop, areas where you are already proficient and others where you need further development and support.

Refer to our overview description of our Level 7 Manager Development Programme for full information.

Topics for discussion

We will introduce systems dynamics as a business tool for use in HR and OD. We will discuss the ideas of causality in managing people and how it is that many variables interrupt the simple idea that once thing causes another to cause complexity.

In addition, we will review the past webinars covering the following topics:

  • Contracts
  • Psychological contract
  • Commitment
  • Innovation (climate)
  • Engagement
  • Culture change
  • Reward
  • Objective setting and management
  • Motivation
  • Leadership

We will be soliciting questions from webinar attendees on those topics.

Our aim is to have delegates leave with a good understanding of the issues and the ability to use the tools discussed.
