HR for Managers

Managers are often surprised to discover that a significant amount of their time is spent using skills they thought were mostly required by the HR team.   This programme is designed for people with responsibility for recruiting and managing the performance of others.

HR for Managers begins with raising awareness of people management responsibilities and ownership of team performance.  The key elements of HR follow: getting someone into the organisation, setting objectives, managing performance, and finishing up with a meaningful performance review.

The final section holds a hidden gem: knowing how to get feedback on your own performance as a manager (assuming this is the skill you want to develop and the reason for signing up to this programme).  

 

HR for Managers is a perfect foundation programme to all our other management programmes, or a good refresher for managers who may need to re-charge or re-focus.

“The Four Keys of Great Managers: (1) When selecting someone they select for talent, not simply experience, intelligence or determination.  (2) When setting expectations, they define the right outcomes, not the right steps. (3) When motivating someone they focus on strength, not on weakness.  (4) When developing someone they help him find the right fit, not simply the next rung on the ladder!”   Marcus Buckingham
