OD - Organizational Development module

Reflection Cafe - Dealing with the Pressures of Managing

Duration: 0.25 days
Target population: M's and Excluded positions
Cost: $0
Course objectives:
The metaphor of the manager as an orchestra conductor has been popular for years. The idea is that the manager, fully in control, up on a pedestal waves his or her baton and the tasks and projects move forward all together to create glorious music. But is this an accurate image of managing?
Written by world renown management thinker, Henry Mintzberg, the CoachingOurselves topic discussion guide: "Dealing with the Pressures of Management" guides you and a group of your peers through 90 minutes of discussion and reflection on the realities of your world... the world of management. The popular myth of the manager fully in control is replaced with some facts about the characteristics of managing; the hectic pace, the fragmented work, the orientation to action. Working with your peers, you will think about how you presently maneuver the inherent pressures of your position, and how you can improve to better succeed as a manager.
