Managing Yourself

Management begins with you and the person you are.

How hard your people work for you, what their level of commitment is and how content they are to be influenced by you depend, largely upon your character and your competence that they see you demonstrate. Your character and competence as a manager make an enormous difference to the people who you must persuade, guide and encourage to be successful.

In this section we deal with all the competences associated with your role as a manager or executive, whether you are already in that role or are about to begin.
