(Approximately 75 to 90 minutes)
This webinar is about how to manage people. Managing people successfully is at the heart of every project, every team, and every management or leadership position. Management “science” is useful when it is based on a deep understanding of human nature. But management cannot be examined just as a set of rules we can apply like a mathematical formula. The answer to many of our questions about managing is, “It depends, but there are some fundamental approaches anyone can master and apply to take the mystery out of the “depends.” Learn a simple way to analyze what will enable people to get the job done and be “managed” effectively.
