OD - Organizational Development module

CoachingOurselves: Reflection Cafe: Dealing with the Pressures of Managing

Duration: 0.25 days
Cost: $0
Course objectives:
The pressures of managing are constant, not temporary: in other words, pressure in this job is business as usual.

This topic looks at the popular myth of the manager as fully in control and replaces it with some of the facts about the characteristics of managing: the hectic pace, the fragmented work, the orientation to action. How is anyone supposed to think, let alone think ahead, amidst all this?

The objectives for this topic are to:

•Bring managing off its pedestal, into its realities.
•Appreciate the inherent characteristics of managerial work.
•Consider how best to deal with these challenges.
