Improving Manager Performance


Managerial effectiveness is dependent on self awareness and self management and the ability, through interpersonal skills and good management practice, to bring out the best in others. Obtaining the maximum benefits from valuable resources must be a key objective of any manager.

Managing the continuous development and improved performance of others is key to improved effectiveness as a manager and the success of the manager’s contribution to the organisation.

This managerial effectiveness has to be achieved within organisational and legal constraints; an effective manager recognises this and maximises their own practice within these boundaries.

This module is inward looking, focusing on the managers themselves as actors within this environment, in particular emphasising their responsibility for managing the contribution of themselves and others to the organisation through task completion.
