The “Effective Management” program is available to higher education, corporate education or continuing education organizations looking to build essential general management skills and competencies.

Principles of Management addresses several key questions that managers face: How can they be more effective? Which managerial styles work best? How can managers empower those who they direct? Principles of Management shares years of experience and expertise in a readily accessible framework, with a focus on the human side of management. Dr. Mills outlines tactics and techniques for effective and ethical management, drawing and highlighting the key distinctions between the skills needed for management and those called for by leadership in an organization.
