MYLO: Managing Yourself, Leading Others
Trainer: Margaret Andrews
Managing others may not be complex . . . but it is certainly not easy. What often appear to be simple, straightforward principles can be deceptively difficult to implement. Designed for practitioners, this program will focus on the very practical understanding and application of management principles and looks at management from different angles – managing oneself, managing organizational life, and managing others (managing upward, downward and sideways). Management is contextual and requires judgment and participants should expect to grapple with ambiguous situations that do not have simple solutions.

12-1 p.m.
