Is Management for Me? virtual public workshop
Making the decision to follow the formal management path can be a rewarding, yet challenging experience. Management roles are typically full of growth opportunities that require the individual to learn and develop new skills and approaches to be successful.
Too many outstanding individual contributors make the mistake of thinking that the formal management path is the road to fame, fortune, and job satisfaction only to discover that their expectations did not align with reality. They end up frustrated, dissatisfied, and in many cases leave the organization taking their institutional knowledge and experience with them. It is a tragedy—not for them alone, but the organization as well!
Others have the negative perception that management is for “ladder-climbers” and is full of unrewarding activities like dealing with difficult people, working extra hours without compensation, and being required to attend too many meetings. These perceptions can lead an otherwise excellent candidate to avoid the management path. Although there is nothing wrong with making the decision to focus on one’s technical competence and career, some walk away from a potentially rewarding experience that could utilize existing talents and abilities and give them the opportunity to develop new skills creating tremendous value for the organization and for themselves.
This manual along with the associated tools, facilitated exercises and discussions are designed to help you find the answer to the question: Is Management for Me?
