Understand your role and responsibilities as a manager.


Managers need a solid foundation in the key functions of management - planning, organizing, leading, and controlling - to meet management challenges. This practical course examines these functions and translates them into the skills needed to perform successfully. You will learn how to take a "situational approach" to leadership-that is, how to choose a leadership style that is appropriate and effective for the situation. Using the Leader Behavior Analysis II (LBAII), you'll also gain an understanding of how others perceive and experience your style. This course is designed for managers who want to increase their personal effectiveness and the performance of their work groups.
