This manual provides encouragement and resources to help you achieve high standards in your management of people not only when a harsh financial climate causes questions to be asked about how much time and effort can realistically be devoted to the task of being good at managing people, but also when budgets for developing managers AZ skills are tight. It takes the view that: precisely because of these challenges, the best possible people management is essential; abandoning the pursuit of high standards will be counterproductive; and, good managers can still be developed when budgets are tight but changes in approach may be needed. To help you develop cost-effective approaches, this manual offers 38 concise and questioning reflections on people management issues that arise everywhere. They have been specifically written to help develop the differing types and qualities of managers that various organizations need, by encouraging reflection and discussion in: individual study; group sessions; supervision; and, mentoring. They can be used as and when, to focus on matters arising. Or they can be used systematically to help create a cost-effective management development programme that is expressly tailored to your organization AZs needs. They will help managers in your organization develop greater flexibility to: motivate and inspire staff, despite job insecurity and increasing pressures, to deliver more for less; encourage innovative ways of delivering services; cope with wider areas of responsibility, working across traditional service boundaries; apply their management skills in services in which they have not actually worked previously; and, maintain training - or introduce it - around issues such as equality and diversity, and so emphasize how treating staff well helps any organization, in any climate, to survive and thrive. "People Management in a Harsh Financial Climate" will help you improve and maintain high standards in your management of people, even as your organization AZs resources for management development are being reduced. It is the first in a series of manuals called "Management Development on a Tight Budget". Each manual addresses skills that managers need to learn in order to thrive personally, and to serve their organization well when both the future and the availability of funding are uncertain. Other books by Blair McPherson in "The Management Development on a Tight Budget Series" will cover: equipping managers for an uncertain future: developing your managers on a tight budget; managing a diverse workforce: developing your managers on a tight budget; when things go wrong: disciplinaries, grievances and complaints - developing your managers on a tight budget; and, getting the message across: 2-way communication - developing your managers on a tight budget.
