Managing yourself introduction
1 Lecture 02:56

You may have to manage others, resources, budgets, your life!  The starting point is to consider how you manage yourself - and without doing this successfully  you won't be able to mange others in a sustainable away.  There are four areas we will focus on here: managing work pressures; managing your career development; ensuring you lead and influence; managing your lifestyle.

Managing pressure
1 Lecture 05:52

The most important starting point in managing yourself successfully is learning how to handle pressure at work.  You'll need to actively manage the pressures on you to make the most of any challenges, and control the hindrances that drag you back. This should be integrated into your normal everyday working activity and not just something that you do when you are feeling particularly stressed.

Career development
1 Lecture 07:03

You need to play an active role in managing your career development yourself - it's not just down to your business or organisation. This doesn't mean just focusing on your next promotion - you can develop your career without necessarily getting to the next level in the hierarchy.  The best place to start here is to get clarity about your career goals.  What really motivates you? What are your core strengths?  You then need to work to create options and potential avenues that you could take that will meet your goals and build on your strengths.  You also need to be honest about what rewards are important to you and to choose the paths most likely to lead to them.     

Your career development goals
Leading and influencing
1 Lecture 08:17

Creating time and space to lead and influence others is an important part of managing yourself for success.  Increasingly you need to consider influencing in all directions in organisations: upwards; downwards; sideways.  This means influencing your boss, managing your team successfully and having a positive impact with your peers.  To do this effectively you need to be able to step back from just reacting to day-to-day demands, and develop a strategy for leading and influencing, and then use the right tactics and approaches to do so.

Life management
1 Lecture 06:07

Just focusing on managing yourself at work is never enough.  You need to consider your whole life and ensure work is optimally integrated into the rest of your life.  This means understanding how central work is to your life, as well as ensuring you actively maintain a healthy lifestyle and develop the right habits.
