Who Manages, Who Leads Part Two

Who Manages, Who Leads Part Two: Mentor, Progress, Succeed is the second of a two-part series of four-week interactive programs, to introduce and continue educating existing managers and leaders to advanced theory and practice. 

Some managers face a continuum of managerial issues, tasks and nightmares on most average days. 

Managers see mission. Leaders see vision. To every leader you will have a manager and to every manager a leader. Issues in managing other staff, resources, and services, as well as leadership roles and expectations are daunting tasks. Yes some leaders are born, but others can be trained. 

This course also benefits those who have a great resume, which expectedly leads to an interview — resulting in being hired into a coveted management spot. This course discusses advanced succession, mentorship, and promotion in hiring and selection. Managerial and leadership opportunities in between this spectrum range from those promoted into manager leader positions and those hired as manager leader positions.

By the end of this course the participant will be able to:

  • Explore and discuss theories of management and leadership 
  • Understand the differences between leadership and management and gain insights in how to move from one role to the next and how to be both simultaneously.
  • Tie in practical issues that present to managers and leaders, such as hiring, firing and suggesting corrections to existing behaviors among staff.
