About The Course

People are the key to any effective humanitarian response. Managing people can be difficult at the best of times, but during the chaos and stress of a complex humanitarian emergency, the ability to manage people is crucial for the success of any programme.
This three-day course introduces participants to the fundamentals of good people management. Participants will have the opportunity to explore theories and practices of good management and will learn how to employ different techniques of communication, negotiation, team building and conflict management in order to develop a concrete set of management skills.
Participants will have an opportunity to reflect on their own style, strengths and weaknesses as a manager in light of their new knowledge and skills. Upon completion, participants will be able to demonstrate several essential skills for managing their teams with greater confidence and success.
