ACU and Blanchard International Management Essentials Program
An opportunity is available for staff to participate in a ‘Management Essentials’ program based on the #1 best-selling book The One Minute Manager.
ACU has partnered with Blanchard International to deliver a ‘pilot’ of the Blanchard ‘Management Essentials’ program. Places are strictly limited to 18 participants per workshop so please register early to avoid missing out on this professional development opportunity.
What will you gain from attending this workshop?
Becoming a manager is one of the most challenging and critical career transitions. Managers are often chosen from high-performing individuals. These highly proficient doers often become struggling managers, without the methods or skills needed to succeed.
In Management Essentials, based on the #1 best-selling book The One Minute Manager, participants are introduced to the three secrets of successful managers: Goal Setting, Praising, and Redirecting.
This program develops those secrets into a conversation framework that is easy for managers to understand and master. The program also adds a fourth conversation, Wrapping Up, which is needed to complete the core conversations and help managers boost the engagement and autonomy of their people.
Compare and contrast the workplace roles of an individual contributor and a manager, and identify the mind-set required for being a successful manager
