Resources

Here at NonHRManager.com, we’re deeply committed to continuous improvement. This page presents two resources that help students and managers learn more about people management:

(1) In a Nutshell – a series of brief videos that highlight some important people management challenges, and

(2) Undercover Manager – activities designed to help you hone your people management skills.
 
If these videos and activities below whet your appetite, you’ll find much more relevant content in Human Resources for the Non-HR Manager. And if you’re a course instructor, the Instructors tab provides information about accessing other resources.
