- It's a frustrating fact, we can't possibly know everything about everything. It would be nice, but it's not realistic. So if you're a manager, you will inevitably have to hire people who have more expertise or experience in a certain area than you do. How you handle this essential, yet potentially awkward task of managing experts will determine the ultimate success of your team. Hi, I'm Sara Canaday, and I'd like to welcome you to this course. Through my work as an executive coach and leadership consultant, I've helped hundreds of managers work effectively with their subject matter experts, both employees and contractors.
The strategies I've helped them to implement are the ones I'll be sharing with you. As we work together through this course, you'll discover how to identify the mindsets and specific needs of your experts, their unique perspectives, challenges, and expectations. Then you'll learn exactly which management strategies will allow you to maximize your expert's contributions and how to communicate effectively while clarifying performance goals and key milestones. If you apply the principles you learn in this course, I'm confident that you'll see tangible results, you'll cultivate the right conditions for your experts to thrive, and pave the way for them to participate at a higher level.
Thank you again for joining me. Let's get started.
