Course Description

Do you aspire to be an ideal people manager? The journey from being an individual contributor to a people manager requires significant personal development and growth. If you are a first time manager, you may have asked yourself:

  • Where did I go wrong in managing this particular employee?
  • How should I give feedback to my subordinates?
  • How do I handle potential assessments?
  • How should I motivate people who report to me?

The objective of this business and management course is to smoothen the transition for newly appointed people managers, motivate and guide people who are aspiring to become one and to think back and reflect for seasoned managers.

The course will provide learners with an enhanced understanding of the role of people management in organizational context.

It is indeed a very good course. The teaching and learning methodology of this course is excellent. Sharing live experiences develops the experiential learning, is the 'Unique Selling Propositions' of the course. Highly recommended for the people at all level irrespective of any department belongingness, as managing people is all pervasive.

Instructors or course coordinators are careless of how the information regarding course schedule is shared. This course runs into 6 weeks with one additional week for break. Week 7 opens on 14th Dec and Graded assignment for the same is due on 14th Dec. I highlighted the same but no one is to care. One cannot reach instructor. No contacts. Very opaque. Not expected this from Top Notch business school. Pathetic course logistics.

Ever since I took on responsibility of managing team, work stack and other aspects, I have been looking to understand all the formal aspects of people management. This course covers all those aspects quite well and gives you pointers for progress. Language and interface is easy to understand and relate... Instructor knows what she is doing. This course has helped me very well to understand and I'll refer it's material quite frequently in coming years.

This course has open my eye to see the way to deal with my staff as a manager and how to relate to my boss. The last chapter is the most interesting part to me because communication makes all the other topic to be effective. . I am very appreciative that I took this course while I am in search of a job this will really enhance me at my work place. Thank you very much for all the examples that makes the course to be interesting and understandable

I was very motivated to take this course when I first saw it. It reminds me the necessity to keep continue grow academically. You know, reminds you when you were student and you were taking notes about the main ideas and my idea was to finish de course in order to place all the learning in practice. Unfortunately I might say I wont complete it because I felt tricked about the price. When I enrolled it there was a lower price $29 and that was really awesome to me since I have so many expenses to make; but further more in the course I saw that the certification when up to $79! why edX or the provider did that? Once you enroll you cannot go back...so in this case I feel a lot of disappointed. They suggested me to try the financing aid and did that, but their answer was negative. So, good luck to all of you in the pursuit of excellence.

Hi, I would recommend this course to anyone who is new to people management. Quite good Introduction. Clear and useful. Unfortunately Hour Certificate is not granted(not available after completing course with much higher than required score). Hopefully this will be corrected and everyone missing certificate will receive it. BR
