Who Manages, Who Leads: Part Two: Mentor, Progess, Succeed, Lead

eLearning
"Who Manages, Who Leads Part Two" is a four-week program for managers and leaders to learn advanced theory and practice in leadership, succession, and mentorship, benefiting both experienced and newly hired leaders.

Who Manages, Who Leads Part Two: Mentor, Progress, Succeed, Lead is the second of a two-part series of four-week interactive programs, to introduce and continue educating existing managers and leaders to advanced theory and practice. Managers see mission. Leaders see vision. To every leader you will have a manager and to every manager a leader. Issues in managing other staff, resources, and services, as well as leadership roles and expectations are daunting tasks. Yes, some leaders are born, but others can be trained.

This course benefits those who participated in the first of this series, those who have a great resume, and those with successful interview who are hired. This course discusses advanced succession, mentorship, and promotion in hiring and selection. Managerial and leadership opportunities in between this spectrum range from those promoted into manager leader positions and those hired as manager leader positions.


Learning Outcomes

By the end of this course the participant will be able to:

  • Theories of management and leadership are explored and discussed
  • Understand the differences between leadership and management and gain insights in how to move from one role to the next and how to be both simultaneously
  • Tie in practical issues that present to manager and leaders, such as hiring, firing and suggesting corrections to existing behaviors among staff.

Who Should Attend

This course also benefits those who have a great resume, which unexpectedly leads to an interview resulting in being hired into a coveted management spot. This course discusses advanced succession, mentorship, and promotion in hiring and selection. Managerial and leadership opportunities in between this spectrum range from those promoted into manager leader positions and those hired as manager leader positions.
