Complex Workplace Issues Managers Struggle With
Five, 60-Minute Webinars
Begins Wednesday, April 20 @ 2PM ET
Ask any manager what’s the hardest part of their job and you’ll hear the same thing: “Managing People!”
Not the technical aspects of their job, not the budgeting, or even the dealing with customers. It’s the people aspect of it. Managing people is just plain hard.
And it is. You can read a lot of articles and books discussing the theory of management, but when you’re face to face with an employee, theory, fads and the latest gimmicks go flying out the window, so you better really know what to do.
For over 25 years I’ve advised managers and supervisors on what to do and say when faced with an employee. I’ve always provided practical, understandable and uncomplicated techniques designed to deal with the situation, making the job as a manager easier and ultimately making managers better at their jobs. And it works. I know because managers repeatedly tell me I’ve helped. And I even wrote a book about it, which you can get.
I know that when you understand what you have to do, how to do it and what to say (and not say) to your employees, you can ultimately improve overall performance, solve problems, and make your job as a manager easier. And that’s what this webinar series is all about.
- Manage your people well, and they become happier and more productive.
- Manage your people poorly, and performance tanks and your life is miserable.
In these 5, information packed webinars, I’ll show you how making a few essential changes and improvements to how you manage will vastly increase your effectiveness as a manager.
