People management skills are now more important than ever and it really is no secret that people remain the biggest untapped resource in many organisations. And when you think about it, in today’s uncertain economy, coupled with changing markets and ever-increasingly aggressive competition, many organisations are being forced to deliver a lot more with less.
To release the untapped potential of your people and your teams it simply isn’t enough anymore to manage in the same old way. Research continues to show that the number 1 challenge facing South African organisations is how to attract, retain and develop top quality people and once you have recruited them, the challenge then shifts to how to get your people to perform at their full potential. These new people management demands are having a dramatic effect on how managers and team leaders must operate…and this means that people management skills (yes, the touchy feely stuff) is now more important than ever.
As a Manager, your success is measured not only in terms of your individual contribution but by how well you work with and through your team.
Ask yourself honestly – are your people management skills holding you back professionally?
You have probably seen this situation before…two people with a very similar set of skills and knowledge, but one of them is able to manage people better and the other one’s people management skills are just simply poor or mediocre at best. Which one gets ahead faster and goes further? Of course you know the answer…there really is no contest!
People like to be managed, especially if they are managed well. And the good thing is that just like any other skill, effective interpersonal skills, that can help you to manage your people better, can be learned.

You will learn the skills needed to understand, relate to and work better with all types of people…even the difficult ones!
