Ok, so my first post wasn’t great so here’s a bit of clarification. I am an online editor in a big media organisation. I have been a manager for quite a few years and am very interested in management and training. Why? Because I have worked with some very good managers and have really benefitted from their support and guidance. I have also attended some great training courses.

On the flip side, I have worked in teams that don’t work very well. My experience is that it doesn’t take a lot to get a team working well – the right people, the right goals, the right culture, the right reward. Simple – but oh no. Poor managers are usually at the heart of poor performance and team dynamics.

So, I’m going to be posting on management and training issues.
