Performance Oriented Coaching
- Management Training
Management is essential in all organized cooperation, as well as at all levels of organization in an enterprise. It is the function of not only the CEO of a corporation and the army general but also of the small business owner and the corporal managing a team of 6 soldiers.
The basic task of all managers at all levels and in all kinds of enterprises is to design and maintain an environment in which individuals, working together in groups, can accomplish selected missions and objectives efficiently.
Is management an art of a science?
If you consider managers you know, or have worked for, the very best seem to be able to combine a systematic (scientific) approach to management while getting the best out of their people in terms of motivation and relationships (artistic). Managers leaning too far to either side will fail to get the best out of their team. Under this section, we are considering the scientific side of management and how a "systems" approach can create a set of processes that provide consistent results. Under the Coaching behaviours tab, we will consider how a coaching culture can best develop and motivate a team to succeed. We also cover one of the classical processes, leading, under the Leadership Development tab.
In considering a systems approach, we need to understand that an organized enterprise does not exist in a vacuum, but is part of a larger system and hence subject to inputs from that environment. The task of the manager is to transform these inputs in an effective and efficient manner to produce outputs, while balancing the often conflicting demands of the various stakeholders.
Basic functions of management
Management operates through various functions, often classified as planning, organizing, leading/directing, and controlling/monitoring.
- Planning: Deciding what needs to happen in the future (today, next week, next month, next year, over the next 5 years, etc.) and generating plans for action.
- Organizing: (Implementation) making optimum use of the resources required to enable the successful carrying out of plans.
- Staffing: Job Analyzing, recruitment, and hiring individuals for appropriate jobs.
- Leading/directing: Determining what needs to be done in a situation and getting people to do it.
- Controlling/Monitoring, checking progress against plans, which may need modification based on feedback.
Management workshops are tailored to an individual company's requirements and built with relevant case studies and examples to re-enforce the learning.
