Becoming a Manager
The role of the new manager demands a new mindset, new activities, and new relationships with people throughout the organization. Becoming a Manager guides the first-time manager through these and other challenges. Part One, Making the Transition, explores how to make the critical shift from individual contributor to manager; what it takes to build a successful partnership with your boss; and the key elements of managing time, which is every manager┐s scarcest commodity. Part Two, Developing Your Management Skills, examines how to use influence and persuasion to manage without formal authority; how to develop a leadership style; the elements of planning and setting goals; and the critical roles of work processes and continuous improvement. In Part Three, Managing Others, readers learn how to master the performance management process; adopt a process for making sound decisions; and handle difficult people and situations, including high-value customers or a difficult boss. Throughout the course, examples, exercises, Think About It sections, and topical sidebars provide readers opportunities for practice, feedback, and application.
