Essential Managerial Skills and Competencies
At the forefront of organization effectiveness, employees are one of the most important dimensions in determining any outcome. You are truly a VIP – belonging to a group of people in your organisation who must be good in the basics of managerial skills, whether or not your title is “manager”. This can be anyone who has subordinates or who needs to work with a group of people (eg. in a project, or team-based collaboration effort). It is those people in the middle – sandwiched between top management and subordinates – who are the golden keys in the handling and execution of organisational and departmental goals. This course aims to equip you with practical tools to handle work, people, and performance. The top management staff of any company sets the vision, and they depend on people who are efficient in the execution of the vision. It is always the execution point that differentiates between the good and bad consequences, outstanding results or a complete disaster.
