Palm Harbor, FL (PressExposure) June 27, 2006 -- Following closely on the heels of their new eBook, M. Bryce & Associates (MBA) is pleased to announce the availability of a new one day training course on management, THE BRYCE IS RIGHT! Empowering Managers in today's Corporate Culture. This course is a frank and candid description of the state of the art in management. It includes narratives on the problems in management today, along with some pragmatic advice on how to deal with them.
"This course is a companion to the eBook of the same name," said Tim Bryce, author of both. "Basically, this is a compressed course in management suitable for everyone in any type of company, be it commercial or non-profit."
Like the book, the course represents a commonsense approach to the challenges of managing people today. As such, it is suited for managers, either those aspiring to become a manager or for those who need a refresher course. It will also be of interest to young people entering the work force.
The course provides an understanding of the people side of management. This includes: styles of management, creating accountability, managing "bottom-up," understanding the corporate culture, teamwork, the responsibilities of being a manager, how to conduct meetings, persuasion, and a great deal more.
