What’s the course about?
People don’t work hard for a weak manager. Teams fail under the leadership of weak managers. And weak managers themselves have unremarkable and unsuccessful careers.
But great managers are the opposite. People love to work for a great manager. Great managers help lift their teams to new levels of performance. And those managers are highly valued in companies, ensuring they’re the ones that get the promotions and the lucrative salaries.
What’s the difference between the weak manager and the great one? It’s simple: great managers are not born that way; they have to work at it – they’ve studied how to become great. In this e-learning course your learners will gain the fundamental ideas, techniques and mindset they need to become a better manager.
