Event Details

Many talented people trip up when they have to move from doing work themselves to managing people and teams. 

According to London Business School professor Julian Birkinshaw we face a “knowing-doing” gap as managers. We know from our experience as employees how we want to be managed. The problem is that doing the right things as a manager – and doing them consistently - is hard.

In this webinar, we will review what good management looks like and explore techniques we can all use to be a better boss more of the time. We will cover:

  • The most common bad management practices

  • The corresponding key tenets of good management

  • How we can gain more control of our actions and get out of bad habits.

Beyond the problem of what we should be doing is the more fundamental issue of self-control and self-management. We will look at some of the ways we can try and embed good practice in ourselves including:

  • How to use a “stop doing” list and plan ahead for risky situations

  • How to force ourselves to delegate better

  • How to get real feedback (and who is best placed to give it)

  • Ways to avoid micro-management and give up control

  • How to use management experiments to discover and embed good practice.

We will also examine how organisations as a whole can learn these lessons and deal with perverse incentives which encourage dysfunctional management.
