In this two day programme, we will deal with people management questions and challenges. And the content is probably best described in trying to identify answers to some of the following questions. Can you motivate your employees without using formal authority? Can you persuade and influence them in an effective way? Can you flexibly tailor your leadership style to the needs of your employees at given points in time? And are you able to breach resistance to change for important initiatives that you’re leading in your organisation?
We will explore answers to those and other questions by drawing on a diversity of tools, frameworks, some theoretical ideas, but most importantly, the experience and the input from the delegates in the classroom. This programme aims to create value for anyone and the line management role who likes to explore fresh perspectives, new approaches, new tools, and methods in order to address leadership challenges.
So the teaching philosophy of the programme is heavily participant centred, which means that at the end of the day, this course is really about the challenges, the issues, the problems that participants face in managing and leading their employees.
This programme counts towards the Cambridge Judge Business School General Management Certificate of Achievement. On completing the GMCA you will be eligible to become an associate member of Cambridge Judge Business School’s global network of graduates and business-focused University of Cambridge alumni, faculty and staff.
