About the book

The problem with most management development is that it takes managers away from their real job at a time when they are under pressure to perform. The Managing Development Activities toolkit offers simple, practical activities that will enable managers to carry out real work whilst developing skills. It can be used as a development option for existing managers, an induction tool for new managers and a way of increasing the general level of management capability throughout your organisation.

There are over 70 exercises on topics ranging from managing underperformers to creating team objectives. Each exercise includes comprehensive notes for the HR or Training professional managing the development as well as a downloadable briefing pack for the manager. Each group of themed exercises begins with a comprehensive self-assessment questionnaire and the package is rounded off with a detailed 360-degree feedback exercise.

About the Series:
The HR Toolkits provide complete sets of customisable, printable resources to facilitate in-house training and development workshops and strategy design. Supplied as both ring binders and electronic files, and consisting of modules which can be used individually or combined for more extended programmes, the toolkits include ready-made practical exercises, handouts, discussion questions and more to upskill employees.
