Join Britt Andreatta for an in-depth discussion in this video Getting the most from this course, part of Management Foundations (2013).
I have some recommendations for getting the most out of this course. First, get the overview of all that management entails. Watch the course through to get the big picture, and then choose some areas to focus on. Over time, add more until you fully develop the three areas of managing performance, people and the business. Second, use the handouts in the exercise files. Throughout this course, I've created extensive worksheets for you to use to develop your skills as a manager. These documents have been provided in the exercise files for all Lynda.com subscribers.
I've also provided a course outline for premium subscribers. I recommend that you download these worksheets. That way you can access them easily when I reference them during the course. Third, take time to practice. Just like any other skill, management takes some time to develop and practice will increase your confidence. Finally, if you can, partner with a peer who's also a manager, either within or outside your organization. Watch this course together and do the exercises, sharing your findings with each other. You'll not only gain new understanding by hearing about their experience, but you'll also be able to coach and support each other as well.
Alright, let's dive in.
