How to Manage People Smarter Than You Are
Expires After: Does not Expire

A course for ALL people managers, to get you THINKING, and DOING

“Always hire people smarter than you”, or “If you are the boss, and you are the smartest person in the room – you are doing it wrong!”.

This age-old advice still stands, but what happens when you have a core team of experts who now run your key business areas?

How can you ensure you get the most out of them, while still ensuring they have the freedom to generate the genius you paid them to bring in the first place?

Let me be honest with you. I HATE managementy – businesssy courses.

They are full of nonsense for the most part, a few good insights wrapped up in a large salad of words. Some of the best books on topics, (Dale Carneige’s ‘How to Win Friends and Influence People’ for example), are concise, to the point and get the job done.

However, they still read like an extended briefing.

The courses on business I love are those which wear their learning with a heavy robe of humor, levity, and ease of viewing.

Without sounding egotistical, there is a lot of insights and value in this course, but I try not to load it on too thickly.

Some, in fact, the most serious, important, vital lessons sound corny and time worn – mainly because they are the most important, vital lessons.

Ones which I had been told multiple times from college, university, first jobs, professional jobs, managerial jobs, working for myself, etc. Interestingly enough, these are still the core lessons preached since the time of Adam Smith – but seldom heeded by many. Often only realized by someone when it is too late. But I digress.
In person managers who attended briefings were shocked to learn that you can treat your team as individual humans, not a necessary something that increases the burden rate!
Who knew?

This course is called ‘How To Manage People Smarter Than You Are’. One which, I think, I am fully qualified to write, in that I have had the pleasure and privilege to have always worked with people who have mountains of talent to give to the world. I have learned lots from working with these colleagues over the years, and been often humbled by the ease with which they can accomplish tasks with their talents that are beyond me.

I have also learned by experience, and design, how to best ensure that they get the most out of their talents and help bring it to the world.

If you are the lucky person to be leading a team of talented people, you need to view this, take what you want from it, and help them achieve greatness.

If you don’t think you have a team of Talented people, you definitely need to watch this.

If YOU are on a team, you really should get this course for your manager as a present!
