Every manager leverages the talent of the people who are direct reports. At times, managers have to add to this talent pool, or replace someone who leaves.
As a manager, you can approach recruiting either proactively or re-actively.
A reactive manager simply does what the recruiters in HR or in a recruiting firm tells her or him.
A PROACTIVE manager, after working through this program. takes charge of the recruiting steps, and makes sure that recruiting actually delivers the talent needed.
Once you finished this program, you will understand the difference between recruiting for well-established roles and for new defined, evolving roles.
You will be able to make the decisions to ensure that your work with a recruiter gets you the talent you need in either situation.
I have been involved e-learning since the 1980's, when the IT organizations I led started to add just in time help and learning sub-systems to the software applications we were building for our users.
I have managed more professionals than I can count. Over the years, I have learned a lot about leading and managing talented creative people. Many of my teachers were the skilled individuals who worked for me. I am very thankful for all that they taught me.
I took doctoral level in organizational psychology later in my career, when I realized that I was not managing technology but PEOPLE who used technology to deliver services to our business customers. I was always more interested in doing than teaching then. So I went back to the work place at the tail end of my doctoral programs (twice), rather than finalizing my dissertations. At the tail end of my career, I am now devoted to teaching, when I have the experience to know what really works.
I know (all three forms: know that, know how and know why) about managing, hiring, deploying and developing talented people.
I was an early Internet champion. I have been active on the Internet since the 90's. I have been involved in deploying personal and commercial web sites and programs.
I am passionate about the future of e-learning. I believe that e-learning will have as great an impact on the future of our world as the telephone and the car did in their days.
I am translate what I know - from years of practical experience filtered through the best research and writing about people in the work place - into e-learning courses that will help you:
