OD - Organizational Development module

CoachingOurselves: Reflection Cafe - Managing on the Edges

Duration: 0.25 days
Target population: M's and Excluded positions
Cost: $0
Course objectives:
Managers generally spend as much time “managing on the edges” in other words out of their unit, relating to the rest of the organization and to the outside world – as they do inside their unit. Here we consider various roles related to this important work, with the concentration on “buffering”: how to manage the delicate balance of outside forces coming into the unit.

The objectives for this session are to:

•Appreciate that managing on the edges, is as important to most managers as managing the unit itself
•Understand the the key roles by which managers do this
•Probe into “buffering”: how managers can better protect their units from outside forces without disconnecting their units from these forces
