This episode of The Learning FM Podcast is all about Must-have Management Skills.

I wanted to focus on Leadership for this week’s podcast and I was surprised when I got two separate emails this morning claiming to know the top 7 and 5 management skills all managers must-have.  Of course, the lists are completely different.  We will talk through these and more in Episode 17 of The Learning FM podcast!

Some of the skills you will hear about in the this podcast are:

  1. Technology Management
  2. “Outcentric” Leadership
  3. Soft-skill Assessment
  4. Results Focus
  5. Collaboration vs Tension
  6. Transparency
  7. Emotional IQ
  8. Communication
  9. Business Strategy
  10. Critical Thinking
