Fall 2011 Managing Smart

    
 

Think Strategically
Focus on ‘what’ rather than ‘how’ to move to a strategic level of thinking. Strategic thinkers ask what can and will be done to move forward, not how a project will be executed. Learn how to engage in strategic thinking techniques at all levels of your organization. 

Come Out of Your Shell
Turtle-like behavior by leaders during times of change can lead to failure. Leaders who have a tendency to hide in their shells create uncertainty and mistrust. Watch for ‘turtle’ signs and make adjustments.

Interview for Fit
Three types of interviews will help you quickly identify the most-qualified candidate that will be the best fit for your organization and your team. With preparation and practice, the interview you plan, the interview you conduct and the interview you wish you had conducted will allow you to get the most out of the process.

Resources
Books and products to help managers do their jobs better.
