Are you a team leader, supervisor or first-line manager – or you know someone who is? You are capable of doing your job well but you wish that someone had the time to explain the nuts and bolts of good management? You want to start your career in management by learning good habits? If you answer ‘yes’ to these, Your Turn needs to be by your side for the next six months. Based on tried and tested experience, Your Turn gives you vital information over 26 weeks, on subjects such as § keeping legal, healthy and safe§ problem solving§ using your manager§ using technology§ getting people to listen§ money and fraud. Your Turn gives you half an hour a week with your manager, finding out answers to questions buzzing around in your head. You will be amazed how quickly 26 weeks pass, and at the end you work out your management competence. But Your Turn is not only about surviving 26 weeks. Each week you ‘FROG' – take charge of the subject and do something to make your management grip secure and firm. You start to become someone that others will take notice of; you start to become influential. "Simple format, brief and concise chapters which get to the nub of the issue. As a new manager it is encouraging to be able to immediately implement positive actions for change, and it puts me in the driver’s seat by making me feel more in control of where I am going and how to get there." -Team Lead, Residential Design Studio“I found the contents relevant, informative, concise and easy to understand. In my first management role it reassured me that at least some of the things I was doing were correct.”-Services Delivery Manager, Engineering
