The first step in people management is often reported as the most challenging. This course aims to give newly appointed managers and those in their first year of managing one or two staff the core knowledge and basic tools to make it a truly rewarding experience. The course will be highly interactive and give participants the opportunity to share experience with peers. We will use case studies, based on real publishing scenarios, to help you further your understanding, and you’ll get to apply the tools that you have learnt throughout the day. Participants will also gain an insight into their own personal development priorities and how to achieve them.
You will learn to: use a framework to develop and maintain the performance of your people; understand your own management style and flexibility; understand how to develop and maintain motivation; use and develop the job description to drive job achievement; set better objectives with your people; manage your time effectively; understand some of the current and future management challenges in publishing; and identify your own next development priorities.
This is a one-day course for first-time managers in publishing with one to three staff. Ideally suited for those who are newly appointed or in the first year of managing, although those with greater experience who want to refresh the basics will also benefit.
