For Managerial Effectiveness & Performance

Management Development Modules


It is the Manager’s task to invest all the resources wisely to obtain the best possible return and performance.

People are often promoted into management roles not because of their potential to be a good manager, but because they were successful in their previous role. Others have been managing for a while but have not been trained to manage properly.

Some managers are very poorly organised, they know the job and their heart is in the right place, but they just don't seem able to pull it all together.

Some are not good with people. They tend to upset others more than motivate them; their style is more autocratic than democratic, the result being poorly motivated team members and eventually frustrated would-be managers.
