Often, new managers have little practical working knowledge of what to expect in their new role, or if they are an existing manager, already in the role, they can be uncertain of the best methods to use in managing other staff, resources and services. Leaders sometimes emerge from management. Yes, some leaders are born, but others can be trained.
“Who Manages, Who Leads” is a four-week interactive program to introduce and enlighten both new and existing managers and leaders to theory and practice. This course benefits front-line staff that excel in their positions and are promoted to managerial positions, or for those who have a great resume, which expectedly leads to an interview – resulting in being hired into a coveted management spot. This course discusses managerial and leadership opportunities in between this spectrum, those promoted to those hired into management positions.
As part of the learning process, all participants will join in discussions and complete short assignments in order to receive a completion certificate. Additionally, you will be provided an opportunity to research the literature specific to your own professional. All students will also complete a series of short answer questions and a small final project.
