Over the past decade, Gallup has surveyed more than 10 million people worldwide on the topic of employee engagement (or how positive and productive people are at work), and only one-third "Strongly agree" with the statement: "At work, I have the opportunity to do what I do best every day." Studies indicate that people who do have the opportunity to focus on their strengths every day are six times as likely to be engaged in their jobs and more than three times as likely to report having an excellent quality of life in general. Having managers who focus on Strengths decreases the odds of employees being miserable on the job. Disengagement is a curable disease.

XBD 0206 - Managing Managers

Why a program about managing managers? What is it that's difficult? #1: Balancing daily tasks with long-term strategic thinking. If you have managers reporting to you, lots of their 'stuff' ends up being 'fires' for you to put out. #2: Your direct reports may manage a wide variety of functions, and it's difficult for you to create a sense of unity and cohesiveness for your entire group. #3: If you're typical of most mid-level managers (and of most people!), you would just as soon ignore sticky situations such as dealing with difficult people. In fact, you may even back away. Managing managers takes courage, and in this course we give you a simple, but effective two-pronged approach-focusing on developing your business strategy, while also improving your leadership skills.
