Management is a universally useful skill that is required by all sectors of work. From SME’s to global conglomerates, being a good manager makes you a useful member of any team. As a manager you have the power to enable people, allowing them to better themselves and those around them.

But what makes a good manager or bad manager is almost never spoken of. We all have experience of working with people who made us feel capable and empowered and some of us will have experience of working with managers who undermined our ability, whether intentional or otherwise.

In this course we will look into what makes a manager good or bad and assist those with an interest in the course in investigating how we can avoid the mistakes of the manager we worked with previously and see what made the good managers we have worked with make us smile or make our day.
