The Unorganised Manager: Organising Others

Duration : 2 hours Course Level : Introductory Delivery Method : Online
Course Cost : £40.00

A survey conducted in 2007 [1] revealed that more than one third of British directors believe their organisation is ‘paralysed’ by ineffective managers. The research estimated that under-performing middle managers cost the UK economy a massive £220 billion a year.

To ensure that managers are an asset rather than a liability, businesses must give them the skills they need to organise effective, efficient and productive teams.

The Unorganised Manager: Organising Others is a valuable introduction to the skills of organisation. Managers will be shown how to set team objectives, focus on key result areas, define standards and establish targets. By the time they have completed the course, they will have new organisational skills to help them lead their teams and drive the business forward.

Course features

Famous faces including John Cleese, Nigel Lindsay and Beatie Edney show you how to and how not to organise your team, and why it is worth taking the time to do so. Through a visit to St. Peter our manager learns that although he can organise himself he is failing to organise his team. Following the three steps to successful delegation, the manager is able to improve the performance and results of his team and the organisation.

Set in everyday surroundings, well-known performers act out realistic situations in a light hearted and entertaining way that will help you recognise some common errors and understand how to correct them. The familiar settings and witty role play will help you to apply the material to your own workplace.
