7 Keys to Managing Other People

Many strong and talented individual performers find it difficult to make the transition from relying on themselves to getting work done through other people. Managing other people can be a tough challenge, especially when the styles and work patterns of different generations clash.

In this webinar, supervisors will learn techniques in seven key areas for improving both their one-to-one relationships with their direct reports and motivating strong performances from them. They’ll be able to delegate more effectively while avoiding the micromanagement trap.

On December 12, join Gary Duke as he provides simple rules for delegating work to get the right results and keeping people feel positive about the experience.

Key takeaways:

  • Learn how to keep people motivated to do their best and to go beyond what’s asked of them
  • How to develop a simple coaching plan to help direct reports rise to their best performance
  • How to delegate work so that it brings out the best in your direct reports
  • How to avoid becoming a micromanager, while still keeping track of everything you’re responsible for
  • Why it’s more effective to be a coach versus manager of direct reports.

Who should attend:

This webinar is suitable for people in any discipline who have direct reports, or who will soon be supervising other people. It’s also useful for those who already have up to five years of experience in supervising others, as it will help them refine and hone their skills.
