Growing Relationships as a Manager (2024)

As you move from functional expertise into leadership, your workflow begins to shift in many not-insignificant ways. You spend less time working directly on core tasks and more time overseeing the work of other people. What’s the most important consideration for working well with others? You need to start with cultivating an effective relationship. In this course, instructor Simon T. Bailey shows you how to take more interest in people and their work to develop mutual, shared workplace commitments. Learn about the value of providing focused attention, taking time away from the office or the plant to discuss ideas and opinions, making time for meaningful conversation, and being open and available to your team. Explore what it takes to create the relationships, conditions, and culture necessary to facilitate and support high performance, commitment, creativity, innovation, and growth.
