Sinopsis

This book brings together and expands upon the main activities that one needs to dominate if carrying out management functions. It includes an introduction to a set of skills that are common in management positions.

Most of the skills in question are related to leadership. Leadership has been shown to be important in those cases where the organisation has to constantly adapt to the environment and is essential for making decisions and resolving conflicts within a group or for conducting a meeting. Leadership is, at present, one of the key requirements of a management role.

This didactic material combines both theory and practice and helps the reader obtain a realistic view of the competencies required for a management position in any business organisation.

With the help of this manual, published by Ideaspropias Editorial, you will acquire the necessary knowledge to become a senior manager in your company.
