The role of the manager

“Covering all the Bases”

Introduction:

Many introductory management seminars are excellent and so are those intended for senior management. However, there is an universal need for comprehensive middle management training since many courses in this field are either too specific and often cumbersome or too general to be of any real use to those that already have some managerial experience.

This course attempts to fill this need. It is based on a model developed by Petur Gudjonsson, an internationally known lecturer and consultant. This model is both specific and comprehensive at the same time and it can be applied to any size firm, a division or indeed a department.

The course covers all areas of management such as role delegation and training, information flow, decision making and coordination. It deals with the nature of human communication and it trains the participants in team work and team decision.

Objectives:

At the end if this seminar the participants will be able to:

  • Identify and find solution to most management problems.
