The Core Skills of Management

Moving up the company ladder often means acquiring new skills that are expected of a higher position. At the management level, individuals need to learn how to communicate, collaborate and plan long-term projects by bringing the workforce together under a single focus.

This Business of People® workshop helps managers and potential managers to understand the core skills of leadership. While the different technical and specific issues differ from industry to industry, these core skills are common across all business sectors: understanding a group of people, helping them to function at a higher level and be more successful are pivotal to any managerial experience.

Skills explored in this workshop include:

  • The managerial process over time
  • Wearing two hats
  • Developing the managed group, not just mentoring or coaching
  • How motivation actually works
  • Building morale
  • The model for execution
  • Accountability

Become a more effective manager and apply what you learn to your workday experience.

The 7 Dilemmas of Leadership

The 7 Dilemmas of Leadership


This book examines seven key dilemmas leaders face, looking at each from the inside out. Most leadership books look at leadership from the outside in — that is, at the skills, frameworks and bigger ideas of leadership. Over the course of Norman Shub’s 40 years as a practicing psychotherapist, organizational consultant and developer, he has developed the approach of facing issues not as right or wrong but rather as part of a continuum of possibilities. This book challenges leaders and potential leaders to look closely at how they act in the face of seven common dilemmas.
