Leading and Managing People - Advanced Professional Development [Level HE7] part time

Working with others, in a multiplicity of ways, is required of most managers. It entails working with others who have very strong and differing value bases, complex and differing organisational backgrounds as well as contrasting stakeholder and client expectations. The aim of this course is to develop knowledge, understanding and skills in the management of people in order to improve organisational performance.

During the course you will explore the impact of differences in values, style and behaviours on performance in the workplace, and develop the ability to diagnose the need for change in your employment context, as well as analyse and develop feasible and sensitive change strategies. You will also develop the ability to analyse group working using notions of power, leadership and style, and apply these to your own working context and behaviours. Your capacity to manage the performance of individuals and groups will improve and you will learn about the operational performance management systems of recruitment and selection, appraisal, and capacity and governance management.

These skills are essential for successful and sensitive management and will assist you in gaining access to higher levels of responsibility at work and improving organisational performance.

You may be given financial support from your employer or you may be self-funded.

This course is part of a professional development framework within the School and the credits gained upon completion of this course can be used towards the MSc Professional Development (Leadership in Health and Social Care).
