In times of financial crisis, rapidly changing business contexts, and globalised work, managers depend more than ever on their subordinates to get results. Employees may thus represent both a key resource and a liability for managerial success. Tapping the full potential of employees, however, may require leadership and people management skills that stretch beyond ordinary managerial competences.
In this programme, we put the question of how managers can lead employees for maximal commitment and motivation centre-stage. We adopt a people management perspective to many leadership challenges.
