Who is a Manager? A person who knows how to manage things in an organization and guides people who work for him. Managing a group of people requires great skills and talent. No two individuals are the same, and the image of a single person handling all such different individuals is tough right? And, the manager has to understand each one of them to manage his team. Believe me, it’s no picnic.
To become a manager, you definitely need management skills, but those are not enough to make you a successful manager. Many people/students enroll for a Management programme to learn management skills so that they can start their career as a Manager right from the moment they are out of the institute. It can be any manager such as a Content Manager, Digital Marketing Manager, Ad Agency Manager and Branding Manager, etc, in any field. They struggle to get admission in the top management colleges so that they can get the tag of a Manager along with a big fat remuneration. Arguably, Management programmes do teach you management, but managerial skills are something that cannot be taught within four walls of a classroom. They have to be learned and mostly in-built within you.
Academic knowledge is quite distinct from pragmatic knowledge. Pragmatic knowledge gives you the taste of the actual scenario and the skills you need to handle or overcome these scenarios. It also gives you an edge when you are being considered for a Top Management position.
Following are a few aspects of managerial skills that a Management programme cannot teach you.
Manage yourself first
Treating everyone fairly
The Management course can be a partner in your journey of becoming a Manager, but it will just be a small part of your journey. It’s you as an individual who needs to finish this journey and make your own way.
