Professional Development Award in Managing Self and Others


This NATIONALLY-ACCREDITED course covers managing personal effectiveness and managing others which are two key aspects of managerial work. Its main purpose, therefore, is to enable you to review and reflect on your current situation in terms of your managerial situation and relate this to people management skills which are a critical aspect of successful management.
This course in Managing Self and Others at level 8 has a similar purpose to the course in Managing Self and Others at level 7 in that it offers you the opportunity to develop your knowledge and skills in successful management and in working with people.
However, Managing Self and Others at level 8 has a much deeper and stronger focus on self-management, working with people and managing others. You will develop inter-personal skills in assertiveness, negotiation and conflict resolution, which should help you become more effective in dealing with people, especially in a managerial role. Additionally you will be successfully able to devise, implement and evaluate an Action Plan to address the development needs and enhance your personal effectiveness.
