Management self-development

Experience shows that the best managers are not those who have been sent on numerous training courses, but those who, on their own initiative, take every opportunity of increasing their knowledge and of modifying their behaviour in order to work more successfully with others, for their mutual benefit.

This book is written, above all, for individual managers who are both keen to develop their own potential and ready to try out new self-development techniques. It describes 26 proven methods and shows how to use them. It suggests ways in which all levels of management can encourage and support the self-development efforts of colleagues and other staff. Finally, it provides management centres and schools with guide-lines on how to integrate self-development with formal training courses, and how to encourage the practice of self-development by producing and distributing learning materials suitable for use without the help of teachers or instructors.
