The Job of the Manager & Managing Yourself
Tuesday, September 10 @ 9:15 am–12:00 pm
Supervision Series #1
Supervising and managing — what does it really involve? (Hint; it may be more complicated than you think!) What do managers to do to be truly successful? Why do some fail and others succeed? What is different about managing in a nonprofit organization? How can you be effective when the mix of information, tasks, and responsibilities on your plate keeps changing?
This session introduces the course and includes an overview of the manager’s many roles and responsibilities to: manage themselves, communicate for results, build successful relationships, manage others, manage change, solve problems, make decisions, lead and empower others, and continue their own professional growth. Managing yourself will be the focus of the final portion of this session and will continue in the first part of the second session.
Presented by Paul Knudstrup, president of Midwest Consulting Group, Inc. and author of The 8 Essential Skills for Supervisors & Managers.
Designed for entry to middle-level directors and managers in all areas of nonprofit organizations (executives, programs, services, administration, operations, fund development, communications — anyone who supervises other staff or volunteers).
The five sessions build upon each other, so committing to the entire course will provide the greatest benefit. Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions at ONEplace@kpl.gov.
