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.

The structure of the course was very well planned and executed. As far as the content is involved I must say that the professor did alot of research and finally was able to bring the best so far.

I had no experience in people management when starting this course. The course is presented by a highly prestigious provider. Some of the topics presented are very introductory. However, this course gives a very nice introduction to the required topics for first time managers, and makes your previous random knowledge united.

The Professor and her team are fantastic!!! The entire experience felt personable. Yes, personable - online from Indian Institute of Management, Bangalore to me from across the globe California, the Bay Area. The course is very well layed out and students were provided a study plan reckoner which was helpful to me in managing my study time. The discussion forums was utilized by many co-participants that I looked forward interacting with. I’m normally shy and, because this was an online class and not real time, this gave me the opportunity to take my time and put my thoughts down in writing. The staff and Professor were very much involved in the forum, it made me feel like they saw me. I highly recommend this class to everyone, to learn how to interact with others and to reflect and better oneself. AWESOME online learning experience PERSONABLE team and GREAT delivery of instruction!!!

The course provides valuable tools if you are working for private or public enterprises. I highlight the modules "Building Peer Network and Manage self". I suggest including in the next course: a module about people out of the corporative world, the ones working as self-employed and a module with all the necessaries steps to pave to way to be a first-time manager and include topics to discuss Leader vs Manager.

The course content was so helpful. I have got some ideas about how to manage the fellow beings in the institution and the importance of feed back is understood. Now it is my duty to practice it all what is studied. But one doubt hit my mind is that when a person is performing in a bad way and I realize that and how can I give positive feed back to the particular person.
