Thursday is Learning at Work Day
To celebrate National Learning at Work Day, The Pocketblog and Management Pocketbooks have created an innovative learning challenge, which we believe can transform your management skills spectacularly. Whether you are just starting in a new management role, or want to create a new start to the way you manage, we throw down to you the “Management Pocketbooks 100 Day Challenge”.
They say that a new manager has 100 days
to make her or his mark
I suspect that, in today’s pressured environment, the need to perform and produce has shortened that 100 days down – in some cases to 100 hours.
So, if you cannot hit the managerial tarmac at full sprint, you do at least have to be able to jog along at a comfortable pace, leaving you to master the details and subtleties of your new role in parallel with doing the job.
It is rather like trying to take apart and examine the inner workings of your car, while you are cruising along the nearside lane of a dual carriageway. You’ll want to overtake soon – just as as soon as you understand how the accelerator works.
If you are determined to be a success, and do more than just cope, you’ll need some pretty fast learning. 100 days: 14 weeks (and two days). The Management Pocketblog has the perfect solution…
The Management Pocketblog 100 Day Challenge
We think that Management Pocketbooks are the perfect pocket-size format to easily read and digest a book a week. Each one takes around two hours to read carefully, and compresses a huge wealth of management information, insight, guidance and wisdom into bite-sized chunks.
But to make it work; to make your learning experience really powerful, you have to do more than read 13 books, you need to take the challenge. After each book, you must:
- Reflect on your learning
- Commit to putting it into action
The reward is this: if you complete the challenge properly, we guarantee that you will have implemented 13 high value changes to your management or professional practice.
To help you, we have designed The Management Pocketblog 100 Day Challenge workbook, that you can download, for free, here.
