Summary In order to get the best out of people in organisations, managers need to address the fundamental principals of people management: those of motivation, ability and confidence building. This proposed book aims to bring together clarity and understanding of these three main areas in one text with anecdotes and practical examples to enable managers to gain demonstrable improvements in organisational performance through their people. The material will be underpinned with just enough theory to establish a rationale for practice. While a highly practical text, the aim is to meet many of the learning outcome requirements of the Certificate in Management and Diploma in Management people management / empowerment modules * a realistic approach to helping today's manager make a difference * practical and comprehensive resource for today's busy manager * reflects the current trend in private training provision for greater inclusion of mentoring and confidence building in management development training.
