    5 Things every new manager should know

    When I began my entrepreneurial journey, it was quite a scary thing. Running a business with a team of three people posed a heavy workload issue. I would like to share some of the thought processes that I have come to embrace to survive my leadership journey.

    Making the most of your team as a manager

    Team managers, whether they are newly-promoted or experienced, face the gruesome task of bringing a team together and getting the members to deliver to the best of their ability. Their role is to direct, coach, advise, mentor, and even discipline where necessary.

    Is there untapped potential within your organisation?

    The world of social e-learning

    Agility and the ability to adapt are important to ensure that the workforce is equipped to handle changes. Itís more crucial now than ever that workplaces consider more collaborative ways of working, to find answers to questions that cannot be answered by individuals working in isolation.

    Make learning a habit

    Author Charles Duhigg in his fascinating book, The Power of Habit, relates a fascinating story of how a new consumer habit was created through the sheer brilliance of a man named Claude C. Hopkins.

    Change starts with acceptance

Despite the well-remunerated managerial position and professional opportunities it promises, there are individuals who rather stay in their current role and prefer not to move up to managerial positions.
