Flevy Executive Learning is a series of online management education programs. We help leaders of tomorrow—i.e. those on track to the C-suite in the next 1-5 years—accelerate their career growth to become successful business executives. The focus of each program is on execution, implementation, and application—not on theory. All programs are led by former executives who have "done it" before. Each program is comprised of both Learning & Application (L&A) lectures and Q&A discussion sessions; and will draw extensively from the instructor's real-world experience as a business executive.
The focus of this program is to help managers of managers (and to some extent managers of non-managers) understand the elements that need to be in place for effective teams. Special attention is provided to the fundamentals that must be in place for teams (and teams of teams) to operate at their best. Most management training focuses on the "soft skills:" leadership, meetings, performance feedback meetings, coaching, writing skills, negotiating skills, delegation skills, and so on. These sessions are more fundamental and can help managers deal with root-cause issues of why they are not getting the team performance they desire and should be able to expect.
Module 1: The Effective Manager
As a manager you are the most important link your team members have to the organization. You control their resources, provide them with feedback, and help smooth the way to success. But our research shows that managers are spending only about half their time on value-added work. This means your critically important managerial leadership work is probably not getting done. If you are not doing your managerial work, your team, your team members, and their teams cannot perform at their best. In this module, we will help you understand your role as a leader and as a manager. You will learn about accountability, and why it is a critically important tool in your toolbox.
Module 2: The 5 Requirements of Effective Managers
As executives and managers in organizations, we don't need research to tell us that engaged and empowered employees drive success. The missing link in most people's minds, is that engagement is driven by the effectiveness of managers. So how do the most effective managers manage? Managerial sciences literature and business self-help books have a multitude of suggested approaches. Writers such as Elliott Jaques, Peter Drucker, and others have put forward the fundamentals of managerial leadership. Effective Managers™ has distilled these approaches into the 5 Requirements of Effective Managers. In this module, you will receive an introduction to these five requirements with practical examples for how you can improve your team's effectiveness today.
Module 3: The 3 Things Managers Do to Kill Performance
People want to do well. They want to be successful, they want their team to be successful, and they want the organization to be successful. So why aren't all organizations top performing? In this module, we will help you understand the three things that managers do to kill performance, and what you should do instead. Here are the three performance killers:
