Leading Management Teams

Leading Management Teams will help participants appreciate and develop the managerial dynamic necessary to elicit a high performance from staff and bring an awareness of leadership styles and strategies to interact with different kinds of people at work or elsewhere.

Participants will gain an experiential understanding of how to build inter-personal relationships that can balance the task focus of managers and leaders. They will gain insights into why adopting a coaching and mentoring style of managing can be highly productive in task accomplishment and gain an understanding of how to go about building a positive culture at work.

The course combines exercises, case studies from real health management situations and role-playing simulations. Participants will address specific managerial problems from their own countries and strategic issues affecting public health programmes globally.
