Effective management skills go far beyond the ability to simply supervise a group or organization and coordinate resources. In addition to hard skills like budgeting and forecasting, soft management skills are as important, and sometimes more so, to create a smooth-running, productive enterprise. Indeed, the number one reason why people leave their jobs is an incompetent or uncaring boss. Unfortunately, few organizations have programs in place to provide managers at all levels, but particularly new managers, with the adequate skills and tools they need to properly lead people. And nowhere is this more prevalent than in the software development and engineering industries.
In this fast-moving video course designed for both newly minted managers as well as leaders at any level, your host, Dave McKeown, CEO of Outfield Leadership, takes you through the fundamentals and well-researched best practices of management and provides you with a set of lightweight tools to use immediately with your team.
