Description: Some say management is more art than science, that you must dive in and take your lumps to learn it. In fact, management ranks among the most difficult roles, quickly exposing your weaknesses and humbling any sense that you’re in control. You never have enough time and there are ever-changing priorities tugging at you. As a manager, you must balance pleasing your superiors, while also maintaining the respect and trust of your reports. All the while, you need to stay focused on the big picture as you push to realize today’s goals.

While experience is key to successful management, so too is training. In this course, Useem and Cappelli examine the structure of work, the psychology behind motivating people, the decision-making needed to achieving goals and proven strategies for developing talent. In particular, the instructors will focus on how to “motivate individual performance and design reward systems, how to design jobs and organize work for high performance, how to make good and timely management decisions, and how to design and change your organization’s architecture.”

Review: “Incredible course. The material taught and discussions held where practical and applicable to the real world situation today.” For additional reviews, click here.
