Course Description:

As a manager, you are responsible for setting the goals for your team and for managing their work. Organizational goals can often get lost in layers of management and not get communicated to the individual contributors. In the absence of goals, employees can feel unmotivated or can even set their own goals for achievement, which will result in poor and conflicting team performance.
