Required Text: First, Break All The Rules: What The Worlds Greatest Managers Do Differently, by Marcus Buckingham

Just how does one select the best candidate for a position, then motivate them to perform at their full potential? Management of employees is one of the most challenging yet rewarding activities in any company. Up until now there’s been no owner’s manual available for perspective mangers that could guide their actions and ensure effective supervision. Thanks to a Gallup survey of world’s top 400 companies and 80,000 managers, the secrets of effective management have now been revealed.

In this course you will be introduced to the keys of effective management that the majority of the world’s great managers employ. Whether you are an experienced supervisor, or recently promoted to a supervisory role, this course will provide critical information and practical examples to enhance your skills as a manager.

Specific Course Learning Objectives Include:

  • Understand the insight of the world’s great managers.
  • Understand the principles (4 keys) that all great managers employ.
  • Learn practical techniques to implement the 4 keys to improve effective management.
  • Understand the difference between being a manager/supervisor and exercising leadership.
