People management in the workplace
People management is a hotly contested topic. As a soft skill, academics question – are you born with this ability or can you learn it? We believe it’s a little bit of both and with this course you will learn how hone your innate ability to get the maximum return on investment from staff and to maintain an efficient, harmonious working environment.
This course is particularly useful if you’re in a role where you hope to step-up to manage staff later in your career, you’re already a team leader or if you’re an owner or manager in a small-to-medium sized business.
