Many new managers are surprised at how challenging it is to be a good manager, so if you want to improve your skills, take this course.

One of the biggest challenges of managers is interpersonal interactions with your employees, your co-workers and your boss. Studies have shown the most common reason managers get derailed is they lack solid interpersonal skills. This course is based on your continually learning more about yourself, through self-reflection, and then how to perform more successfully as a manager. If you do not have the ability to self-reflect, then you become a prisoner of your impulses, always reacting. Here you will learn to respond thoughtfully and intentionally, rather than always merely reacting.

The course is divided into 9 sections in three main areas: 1) Learning your strengths and managing yourself to get things done; 2) Managing your team for high performance; and 3) Managing processes and implementing your values. All of these are necessary to become a high-functioning manager. Each lecture discusses various SKILLS needed to be a good manager, and gives ample examples.

After each course section, three resources are available:

1) A multiple-choice test will be given, and it is designed to help you remember what you learned. Therefore, these tests are a learning tool.

2) A series of professionally-produced management videos, Coffee & Crullers (written by Dr. Marcic), illustrating challenges for the manager of a coffee shop/bakery chain.

3) Learning exercises and instruments.

This Management Skills course has a total of 22 of these learning exercises and assignments, designed to help you apply the principles you’ve heard in the lectures. The instructor is the author of several books on teaching management through experiential learning and she has used these principles in developing the exercises and assignments. The purpose of these exercises and assignments is not only learning how to be a manager, but to facilitate the habit of learning how to keep learning.

In addition, the course is designed for you to learn through a study group and a coach, both of which will add enormous power to the learning from this course. If you want to get the most out of this experience, organize a study group and recruit a coach.
