Effective People ManagementHow often have you seen individuals being internally promoted to reward, recognise or retain them? With the promotion comes the added responsibility of managing people. Surprise surprise! ; what was a highly competent executive now struggles to live up to expectations as a people manager.

Rarely in the training programmes that have developed them to their current level, was there a module on how to manage or motivate people. This “black art” is somehow expected to be already present and to emerge upon promotion. For those who come from a ‘task’ orientated or technical discipline, people skills may not come naturally. Yet productivity and performance within the section is now dependant on how they manage people.

Sound familiar?

Amaze™ have a unique understanding of this business predicament. In fact, 76% of managers polled in a recent Irish survey, said that the one area of development that would allow them to contribute the most to their company was in the area of practical people management skills. Now there is a practical solution available from Amaze™.
