Management Learning Resources Materials to give you (and your team) a boost
Managing aspects of a business in the 21st century is as much about understanding people as processes. Too many organisations focus on the latter whilst ignoring the former. New Line Ideas works hard with organisations on both the hard skills needed to drive the business forward but also on the softer skills needed to gain the all important ‘buy-in’ from team members. Within this section you’ll find useful tools to help you plan time, organise priorities, coach and much more.

The drama triangle
As a manager, 50% or more of your time is going to be spent ‘handling’ others. Fact! The most effective people managers and, by implication, business leaders, are those that understand how to deal with people and conflict – in the extended workplace or between themselves and others. This model – the Drama Triangle – will help you to understand how conflict can begin and how to avoid it.
Here you’ll find a useful audit to complete. When used and shared between the team, it will help you to understand where time is being lost. It’s then up to you all to work together to ensure that you are not being a time stealer to someone else.
Are you a practical coach?
It’s the responsibility of every manager to develop the individuals within their team to their full potential. Whilst this may sound like common sense, many managers only pay lip service to this part of the role and then wonder why ‘when the cat’s away (them) the mice will play’.
