Being a Manager today is far more than just being technically sound at doing your job. Peter F. Drucker, the American management writer states that … “So much of what we call management consists in making it difficult for people to work.” Well, it needn’t be.

This program has been developed for your staff who want practical, comprehensive and easily-accessible management training. It will provide them with the skill-set that will be in high demand for their current and future career.

Topic 2: How to Manage Your Time
We all see ourselves as being quite reasonable in the area of time management.

Motivation is the desire to act. Several different influences and forces motivate everyone. A good manager should realise this and influence their staff to align their own motivations with the needs of the organisation. This topic will show that good managers recognise and reward good work.
