About This Course

Managers act as captains of their ships. Their task is not to do the actual steering or keep stocks of the available rations, but to ensure that all of these tasks are carried out with an end goal of reaching the destination. Managers in the end must choose tasks that have the highest impact to their teams and their organization.

In this experiential and gamified workshop, participants will explore principles of managerial leverage and the art of delegation.
