Managing People in Organisations
The Managing People in Organisations training helps managers and leaders understand the interplay between management action, human resource management and labor relations in business strategy. This course anchors its teaching on the crucial role people play as the main source of competitive advantage. In doing so, they reflect Kaiser Consulting International’s humanistic view of management, providing programme participants with insights to help them in their professional roles and decision-making.
The training workflow begins by introducing the key concepts in managing organisations; to investigate how organisations adapt to their environments; to facilitate a critical understanding of the core issues in contemporary organisations; to provide a framework for understanding the systems and management role in organisations, and a guide for exploring management issues in a global context; and to develop the ability to diagnose and solve organisational problems.
The 5-day executive programme requires all delegates to complete an in-depth personal styles assessment alongside a 360-degree leadership skills assessment as pre-assignments to gain a real insight into their leadership strengths. The training then combines a mix of interactive lectures, exercises and discussions, to help them build a complete picture of their individual potential and understand how they can become the best leaders they can be.
It is people who provide leadership, stewardship, and followership in every organization. People formulate strategies to help organizations achieve their specific objectives. People constantly learn new and innovative ideas to help transform their organizations from mediocrity to greatness. It is people who make things happen in all organisations, even those operated by robots which, after all, were designed by people. To understand the causes of organizational behaviors without an understanding of people is like trying to understand the cause of a moving vehicle without knowing about the engine and driver.
