DURHAM, N.H. – The University of New Hampshire Peter T. Paul College of Business and Economics has launched a new two-day manager development program designed to assist new and seasoned managers maximize team performance.
Managing Yourself and Leading Others invites participants to create a personal development plan for becoming a more effective and productive manager and learn strategies that can be applied immediately upon returning to work. For example, participants will learn how to strengthen communication with internal and external customers, manage conflict, motivate and influence others, and acquire resources.
Paul College senior lecturer William Hassey is the program’s instructor. He teaches leadership and organizational behavior at the undergraduate level and in the Executive MBA program.
“Managers have tremendous responsibility in the leaner, faster, more talented and more diverse workplace of today,” Hassey said. “Old management tactics don’t seem to work very well anymore. A few changes in approach can make a big difference to a manager who is leading. It’s amazing to witness how a shift in perspective can encourage someone to lead in a whole new way.”
“Leadership begins with knowing oneself -- strengths, weaknesses, and areas for development. Knowing oneself frees a leader to be able to pay more attention to those who choose to follow,” he said.
Managing Yourself and Leading Otherswill be offered in Durham April 30 to May 1, 2014. More information is available at ExecEd.UNH.edu or by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org or 603-862-5203.
