This course provides students with the building blocks for future success as a manager. It will begin by looking at the origins and approaches to management and the influential models that have shaped both the academic and practical study of management. This framework will be used to enable students to locate their current assumptions and behaviours against research findings and consider the implications for their preferred style of management.
Diagnostic assessments will be worked on collaboratively with peers in order to raise awareness and provide a 360 degree perspective as regards students’ current understanding of themselves (and in particular their ‘blind spots’) and how their behaviours are perceived by others: the resulting gap will then form the basis of an action plan that will not only define developmental areas but also, and perhaps most importantly, their strengths.
From here students will explore the difference between leadership and management and look at the value of developing an influential, ‘inspirational leadership’ style that wins over hearts and minds and will consider the question-can one lead and not manage, or vice versa? This analysis will be linked to the critically important role that Human Resource Management plays in being a successful manager and leader of a high performing team-being able to motivate and engage staff is a particularly important quality in these challenging times.
Along with Finance, managing the actual delivery of your products and services to customers and clients is a core capability and this course will hone students skills through an applied organisational operations case study.
