How long should it take to develop basic manager skills?
:?: Let me say that the MT podcasts are great and I have learned a tremendous amount listening to the MT podcasts.
I was promoted about 6 months ago and had fairly good time management, writing and clinical skills. (I am a pharmacist for a large HMO). Now there is a whole set of new skills that I need to learn:
Presentation (# has increased 100 fold)
Editing and proofreading
How long does the average GOOD manager take to learn these skills to a competent level?
I have read/reading many of the MT recommended books and practice the skills I am learning every chance I get. Any feedback woul be appreciated.
