Managing Managers, takes a special type of leader.
When you get to higher levels of the manager’s ladder, chances are that some of your direct reports will be other managers. The manager’s actions have a bigger impact on their teams and therefore you need to set expectations differently. Managing individual contributors as part ofa team or work group is the common path to management. Then you get promoted and instead of managing individual contributors, you’re managing managers. Some things remain the same,but many things change. As a second-level manager, your concern broadens and your focus turns more to the future, away from the details of the day. Managing Managers, takes a special type of leader. This workshop will expand participant’s knowledge and provide a way for them to teach and lead new and experienced managers.
Leadership and management of managers has become more demanding: strong personalities demand autonomy, self-responsibility, and self-actualization. Active,professional, and motivational leadership is needed. Only those who are able to convey organizational goals — so that they are passed on to the larger team by managers who report to them — achieve engagement and commitment in all levels of the company.
