For any manager – team leader, supervisor or corporate leader – the central challenge is to harness the skills and energy of others to the aims of the organisation. At every level of seniority, effective management is a key component in an organisation’s long-term success.
That means that being an effective, professional manager is one of the most important and well-rewarded skills in modern business life.
The best managers are able to get the maximum possible effort from their team, whilst maintaining happy working relationships and a sense of shared purpose. But achieving this balance is not easy. Even the most talented natural leaders need to develop an understanding of a wide range of skills, from identifying individuals’ key strengths to how to manage under-performance.
